I've been playing single player for a few weeks and AOE3 runs fine on my computer if I play on low graphics.

I've just started playing multiplayer (just played 7 games) though and I'm getting around a 1-2 second delay as an Australian player. I will often get diconnected from the game entirely as well.

Is this a normal delay?
What would be a normal delay?
Are there any quick ways I could shorten my delay or prevent disconnects?

It's probably either your router or your internet service provider. Or it could even be that your graphics card isn't up to snuff. But no that much lag and often disconnection is not normal.

yea many times it will be your internet speed holding you back

when i play single player the game runs smoother than anything on the highest setting.

but it slows down when im online cause my internet speed sucks..

as long as you lower shader, shadow and antialias in game options, there is not much else you can do there

Uninstall any programs that run in default bottom right corner you do not need and run ccleaner (aka crap cleaner) which gets rid of temporary crap which may help. Run defrag from systems tools and that may help as well.

Other than that probably a hardware or ISP bottleneck issue which you cannot do anything immediately about.
