You only have a given amount of bandwidth so downloading more files simultaneously won't buy you much.

Why don't you use a download manager like Flashget. You can pause downloads and restart them. I have even used it to fix corrupted downloads. You can have about 4 downloads going at the same time. You can get it at  . There are others but I have had the best luck with this one.

it's a registry setting.  I don't remember where it is, but I've turned mine to 20.  That way when I get sites with low bandwidths, it doesn't stop me from downloading many things etcetera.  Well, you know the advantages.

Xteq is a program that will be able to do it.  But it has many many options through which you'l have to fish to find the right setting.  Oh one minute I'll do it for you.

Ok here they are.  Just change them to whatever higher number you like.  The first is for HTTP 1.0 requests, the second is for 1.1 requests.  As always, be careful when modifying your registry settings, blah blah blah.
