VNC may be an option

ive been playing with x11vnc and its client, but the speed/quality doesnt seem to be there, its even slower than teamviewer, any other options?

You could try VLC software. This one can be used as a server and a client over a local network.
I never used it, but it's described in many magazines.

Can you help with this problem?
