Maybe it's slow because it's not dead reckoning..

That's the most basic way of making an online movement.

Dead reckoning means that you predict the players movement by using the information that you have. In effect it means that you have to send very little information. I have posted some lengty explanations about online games and dead reckoning the other week:

basically it means you send info on what buttons the players press, not their position. If player 3 is at position 50,45 and his computer sends a packet explaining that he now started press Right Arrow, the other players will just have their Player3 char move right until they receive a packet from player3 saying that he stopped pressing the button.

that way you dont spam people for every little pixel of a movement.
