Lag and weird delay online play only

OK, here's the problem, everytime I go online and join a game I get terrible lag as if i am watching pictures move slowly and everytime i click on a unit and give it a order it takes like 5 seconds for the unit to actually respond to my order. Now this doesint happen offline at all but online it happens all the time is this normal and does this happen to anyone else or just me?

My specs are:

Pentium4 CPU 3.06GHz

Geforce 8500GT

2048MB RAM

i'd say thats internet lag
what speed connection you got?
if its 56K thats why, though even if you have fast internet and are connecting to someone in a different country you'll probally still get lag
