upalakshitha, unfortunately I do not have good news for you
Your IDM opens multiple different TCP bridges towards destination, thus using all 3 routes available from your 3 different ADSL connections.
However, your browser can only open ONE connection for your download, so it will use one of the 3 connections, but not all of them. Just think from the point of view of the site you try to download from: The site will send you data , but on which IP address? Your browser initiated the request through one of the connections, - IP1 - and that is the one that will be used.
