      Basically it means that your connection is too slow to reasonably play with everyone else.  This is common for people playing over a modem or if you have any network applications running (like p2p software or streaming audio, for example).  If you've not got anything running, there's not much you can do about it except upgrade your networking (cable or DSL, for example).

      The next major release has networking improvements that will "help", but depending on how bad your connection actually is, you may be out of luck.  Another factor is to only play on servers that have few players.  The fewer players, the less likely you will flood your connection and boost your lag.
