I am having a problem here, and I am not too sure how to fix it (not even sure it can be).

I host a server for my brother and I to player on, which means I have to run 2 instances of the game at once. I've done this with a few other games and never seemed to have any lag issues. Anyway... When I finally joint he server, I am getting all kinds of lag. Enemies magically jumping in front of and behind me kind of crap. However, when I go into my brother's room, he is almost perfectly fine. He has a tiny bit of lag, but it is barely noticible.

I have:

4 gigs of RAM (winXP)

nivdia 280 GT card

3.1 GHz AMD dual core

550 gigs of free hard drive space

Did a scan and didn't have any spyware or any malicious programs at all. Anyone have an idea that can help me improve my performance as the host?

You're just going to have to find another machine to host the game on. Copy over the game files to a different computer so you can host from one, play on another. I know it works on other games, but I've noticed it really doesn't work for this one myself. Not much you can do about it.
