How can I use VM on my laptop w/mobile connection like the Internet?

I attend college full-time via online and on of my courses requires(!) using the VM (virtual machine) to complete the assignments. I connect fine, but once inside everything is unbelievably slow. Everything loads in blocks visually, like puzzle pieces, and will kick me out of the console if I do not input every minute or two. I am told it is the result of using a wireless connection vs "hard-wire." What can I do to "bring it up to speed"? 1 hour of work takes 3 hours, it is that slow.

I doubt it is an wireless issue, unless your signal is lowest bar. What VM hosting software do they use? If its VMware make sure vmtools is downloaded, this sugnificantly decreases mouse drag, as for the refresh rate etc.... sounds to me like its there servers, not your connection they might not have enough RAM to support all of the VM's for the students....Try going on a time where most people are asleep. You might see a performance increase if that is the issue.

can you go to speedtest.net and attach a screenshot? or type in what you get for download speed and upload speed

http://www.speedtest.net/result/1551595874.png I hope this is right. So should I invest in a router? I am living w/parents (pathetic) again and they have satellite and my daughter gets her internet that way but I am not to "take advantage" of the service, hence my mobile modem. Would a router solve the problem? I tried the VM on her desktop and it is like night and day, meaning it runs perfectly.

yes thats a horrible connection,
im not sure what you mean by would a router solve the problem?

Routers are tools to connect one network to another, you need the full setup, modem, router maybe wifi, if you want to buy that too....but your not going to be able to run RDC connection or anything else for that matter, with .20 download speed.

I am sorry it took so long to get back to you. I think I had mentioned my daughter's pc is "hard-wired," through satellite TV, but... I was to get my own connection, hence the wireless modem. If I connect her pc to a router and program it to recognize my laptop, would that not solve the connection issue.
My wireless modem is completely separate from the satellite connection.
