I was wondering if I could use TeamViewer so that it only used the network to transmit the data, not the internet. I don't really want to be using all of my data up using it. 

BTW - the other computer is on the network.

Never tried it but usually you would VNC for LAN access. No internet needed at all.

Do whatever you want to do man.

Assuming you mean remote access programs by VNC, TV allows you to connect to anyone anywhere as long as you have their number and password.

Also RDP for lan is good too

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
