Internet Explorer error "connection timed out" when server does not respond within five minutes

Internet Explorer error "connection timed out" when server does not respond within five minutes:

"1. Add a ReceiveTimeout DWORD value with a data value of ()*1000 in the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
For example, if you want the timeout duration to be 8 minutes, set the ReceiveTimeout data value to 480000 (<480>*1000).
2. Restart your computer.
Note This setting does not work on versions of Internet Explorer that are before Internet Explorer 4.0 SP1."
