I am running ARD across my lan and the connections to my other macs are very slow and laggy. I have a standard router and 2 airport extremes. ping time is fine and transfers are quick but ARD connection are whats lagging. I have all ports for 5900 open on my router in case that was causing the issue and dont have the firewalls enabled on any.


Any sugesstions would be really appreciated?

    Same issues here......when my clients were 10.6.8 and my admin machine was 10.7.x I had no problems.  The clients are 10.8.x and they lag like crazy.  It feels like true VNC now, ARD never lagged for me and always felt polished, but not anymore.  No changed here except for the clients going from 10.6.8 to 10.8.2.  My Admin machine is the same.
