Well me and my friend have set up a vpn (virtual private network) in order to trick some multiplayer games into thinking that we are playing over a lan. We do this because we don't have cd keys for the games we play i.e. Starcraft ,CS, DOD. You dont need a cd key in order to play over a lan. Well we got it all set up and working, but after a few minutes whatever game we are playing gets so laggy we can't even play. I have no clue what is causing this. We both have cable connections. I am running the vpn host using Win XP Pro my friend connects to me using Win ME. I hope you can understand all of this and your help will be appreciated.
