WinSock latency issues

I've written a WinSock wrapper class for use with client/server applications. When client programs connect to the server though, there is a noticeable lag time of about .33 seconds on average with an occasional 2 to 3 seconds or more lag spike. Is this due to internet latency, my connection rate (only 57.6kbps) or the routines that I've written? Also, is there any way to speed up the transfer rate of the data?

To isolate the latency to either your program or the network, try running with your client on the local network.  That way, slow network performance won't impact your performance.  If it's still slow, then you know it's in your code or hardware.

Better yet, run the client and the server on the same machine.

I tried your suggestion, and it runs with little or no lag, so it's gotta be the modem speed or the internet.
