So until now, I've been using VNC to connect to my raspberry pi 4 with my raspberry pi 4 being allocated an IP address through my router.
Now I need to be able to connect to it via ethernet cable. So I've connected an ethernet cable to my laptop and my raspberry and now I'm trying to connect to my raspberry from my laptop using the ethernet cable connected to both ends, but the connection is insanely slow.
I just can't do anything. I click something, it freezes and sometimes the VNC connection drops too and it says "attempting to connect back to the VNC server". So what's the deal? In my mind, it should be even faster if it doesn't have to go through the router, but now it's basically impossible to use.
