Since there is a crap load of online achievements, I decided to go to the multiplayer... Bad bad idea. Not only does every server have 1 bar of latency everyone that is in it also has 1 bar.

Long story, short:

I am the only one on the internet at my house, why is every server lagging with everyone on that server lagging?

Is their anything I can do? Or is it just the game?

This happened when I rented Street Fighter IV the first week it came out, no matter what I did everything was lagging like shit.

I've played 17 hours online according to the stats, I've only had one or two 'laggy' games. There are lots of problems with the multiplayer game, in a nutshell, but I'll always find a good half dozen servers with the full green bar, and I quite often host myself but then I have 14 megs down/1.4 megs up.

Wolfie *is* bad but I think this your problem as well, no bandwidth or some cr*ppy ISP like Tiscali, forget about them and gaming.

Strange. I have the best connections on servers that have 1 bar under the lag header. I figured five bars was the best, so my first game was on one with 4 bars. Lagged like no other. Then played one with 1 bar and almost no lag. Then again, my internet is 40mb/s up, 20mb/s down, so that could affect it. But I think the fewer the bars, the less lag there is.
