My link cable is 2.0 and it it's orange, can i still use this?

I've been trying to play steamVR and roblox with my new quest 2. but when i try to link to my PC it sends me to the same exact screen i was on. i don't know if it's my cord or not.

    Hard to say for sure but it sounds like your orange usb2 link cable is charge-only, not data.  You might want to try the usb2.0 charge cable that came with your Q2 and see if this works.  In any case you are probably best to get a proper usb 3.1 link cable (official one or at least one recommended by Oculus).

    Also hard to say because you do not give any PC specs so it could be that you do not meet spec for Link.  Who knows?
