Remote Desktop to Ipad over Lan, Latency Optimizing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I've been fooling around with Splashtop and other remote desktop apps ever since i got my new iPad. I'm trying to minimize the latency over my lan. It's roughly 50-60ms right now, which is pretty good if you want to surf or view movies, but while gaming, it poses a problem.

Right now i got my laptop connected via ether(gigabit) to my router. I've configured my router to 802.11n and port forwarded the splashtop ports. Mouse and keyboard are connected to lappy via bluetooth.

I'm have limited knowledge about networking, but if i were to venture a guess, my v1000 actiontec router is the problem... However, i noticed the when controlling the laptop with my iPad, the response time is negligible, but when i control the laptop and look at the iPad screen, the response time is noticeable. Enlighten me?

So i guess my question is what extra steps can i take to optimize my response times and if swapping out my router for a dual band 802.11n would provide the needed boost to game in this configuration. Maybe there is a better way to accomplish my little side project?

Thanks a ton!

Even on wired PCs your Remote Desktop or VNC sessions won't be sufficient for gaming.

What he said... its the refresh screen draw that will kill you... figuratively and literally... lol.

Is there anyway to make the vnc transmit at a lower refresh rate? That would reduce bandwith significantly, no? (i assume u cant haha)

Okay, so this cant be done via wifi... How about a wired lan RDP session? How would latency be like on that?

Also, new 802.11ac is out... Transfer rates of which are faster than gigabit ether (which is insane). How would RDP sessions behave on that?

Heres a link for what im trying to accomplish, it seems like this dud has miniscule latency!! Any ideas?

For those who may not know, with Splashtop holding the screen for a second or so registers it as a right mouse click... Hence he holds the screen with the stylus.

Im not giving up!!! If this dude could do it, i can too!! biggrin.gif
