I am trying to play AOE3 in LAN. My Desktop and Laptop are connected to a modem through ethernet cable.
Desktop Config: 1 GB RAM Intel P4 Processor (1.66 GHz) 512MB NVIDIA Windows XP Laptop Config: 3 GB RAM Inter Core 2 Duo Processor (2.10 GHz) 256MB ATI Radeon Windows 7
When I run AOE3 in my laptop in single Player mode, it runs very smoothly, even with high graphic settings enabled and am happy about it. But when playing in multiplayer mode, my laptop lags approximately half a second for every second in the gameplay. My PC runs very fine even in the multiplayer mode without any such lag.
What might be the problem here. Any help is highly appreciated...
