What about the specifications of your video 'card'?
Moreover, Centrino isn't a CPU, but a communication device. Maybe you mean Celeron?

So please provide more detail:
1. The CPU
2. The video card
3. A link to the system requirement webpage of that particular MMO you play
4. Type and speed of your internet connection (you can't play MMO games via dial-up)

That's clear, a Core 2 Duo P9400 CPU and an Intel 4 series video chipset integrated on the motherboard.

Now the system requirement and the details of your internet connection (both with the ISP and between your laptop and the modem/router).

And please report on the outcome of an interesting experiment: does it make a difference if you a wired connection between the laptop and the modem/router and or a wireless? Wireless isn't recommended for MMO-games, so it will be interesting to see if there is a difference.

Based on

Also this is pretty much the same as when plugged in to the router
