Is there some thing like AoE3 but with modern weaponry? or just a more modern, newer game? It has to have available multilayer lan.

I enjoyed Rise of Nations. It's slightly newer than AoE3, but not much. It does provide everything from stone age to near future weapons though

Warhammer & Warhammer II games are also a decent RTS, not as much customizationability BUT not a bad lanner either. Along with that Total War 2 games are RTS as well but on a MASSIVE level with hundreds of troops at a time fighting.

In addition to what others have said, Sins of a solar empire. Obviously set in space.

Sins of a Solar Empire was incredibly fun when I gave it a try with a few of my friends, back before any of the expansions came out. I'd imagine the gameplay is even more robust if you throw in the new stuff.

World in Conflict might be a good match too. I haven't played it much yet, but I've heard that it really shines on the multiplayer front. Definitely a game to consider if you enjoy a solid team-oriented RTS.
