Constant disconnection with Oculus Link since the last update!

Level 3

Hello, everyone Since the last Oculus update, I have had constant disconnections with my quest. As soon as I activate Oculus link and want to start a game, the HMD loses the connection to my PC and I am back in the Oculus menu, which shows that the Oculus link is available. Then I start oculus link again and the same problem happens again and again until it finally works. I haven't changed anything in my setup. I even reinstalled the older graphics driver and tried different USB ports and checked whether the standby function was deactivated for all USB ports. I can't find any solution and everything worked fine before the last update. Does anyone have the same problem and maybe a solution?

"Does the headset work when not connected to a PC?"




"Have you been using USB 3.0 cables?"


Yes! Using the same cable for over one year, works great.


"What happens when you test connecting your Oculus to your PC with minimum connections? (Preferably just keyboard and mouse)"


Same problem


"What happens when you try connecting to other USB ports?"


I connected my Qculus Quest to one of my front USB ports today and the Oculus Link lost the connection every time I moved my head in the Oculus menu. Steam VR was not active at the time. At some point it worked again but the sound in the game stuttered, so I disconnected the USB connection and reconnected the Oculus Quest on the same USB port. After that, the quest were no longer recognized by my PC. So I used the USB port on the back of my PC again. Exactly on the connection on which I have only had disconnections for the last few days. Suddenly this connection worked again and I was able to play with a stable connection again. I have the feeling that it might have something to do with the new Oculus software and the new usb drivers from Microsoft that were updated on 09/25/2021


Many thanks for the help
