Are you wondering if you can play PC games on your Oculus Quest 2 without a link cable? The answer is yes, you can. In this article, we’ll explore how to do it and what you need to know.

What You Need

Oculus Quest 2: To start, you’ll need an Oculus Quest 2 headset. This is the latest VR headset from Oculus and has a lot of impressive features that make it one of the best VR headsets on the market.

A PC: You’ll also need a PC with a good graphics card that can handle VR games. The better the graphics card, the better your gaming experience will be.

A Wi-Fi Network: Finally, you’ll need a Wi-Fi network with strong connectivity to your PC. This is how your Oculus Quest 2 will connect to your PC and stream the games.

How to Connect Your Oculus Quest 2 to Your PC Without a Link Cable

Step 1: First, download and install the Oculus app on your PC. You can find it on the official Oculus website.

Step 2: Turn on your Oculus Quest 2 headset and go to Settings > Device > Wi-Fi. Make sure that your headset is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your PC.

Step 3: Put on your headset and go to Settings > Device > More Settings > Developer Mode. Turn on Developer Mode by toggling the switch.

Step 4: On your PC, open the Oculus app and go to Settings > General > Unknown Sources. Turn on Unknown Sources by toggling the switch.

Step 5: Still in the Oculus app on your PC, go to Devices and select “Add New Device.” Follow the instructions displayed on your screen to connect your Oculus Quest 2 to your PC wirelessly.

What You Need to Know

  • Your PC must have a Wi-Fi card and not just an Ethernet port. If you don’t have a Wi-Fi card, you won’t be able to connect your Oculus Quest 2 wirelessly.
  • The streaming quality may depend on the strength of your Wi-Fi network.

    A weak connection may result in lag and poor performance.

  • This method is not officially supported by Oculus and may void your warranty. Use at your own risk.
