Disconnecting Link Cable Quest 2

Level 2

My Oculus Quest 2 keeps randomly disconnecting from 0-60 minutes after being in use, Oculus link works fine with other USB cables and I have written out the possibility of it being a faulty Type-C port or cable by testing different combinations. I have already tried possible fixes such as disabling power limitations but it still crashes while using the Type-C port. The reason I wish to use this port over other USB ports is because this is the only one which keeps my headset at full charge.


Oculus app version (

GeForce Game Ready Driver Version: 5.11.79

Ryzen 5, 3600
RTX 3070 Gaming OC

16GB 2666 RAM

AORUS B450 PRO WIFI Motherboard

Could I ask whether you're running USB 3.0 or 2.0 when using a USB A port? I've found that I get a stable link connection (for several hours) using USB 2.0, but when trying to use a USB 3.0 cable (both Type A and Type C) it will disconnect completely randomly, sometimes in half an hour, sometimes within a minute.

Only got USB 3.0 ports but sounds like the same disconnection problem.

This has worked for me:

Try to also install the latest Oculus drivers by following the steps below:
Close the Oculus app.
Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to open the Run command.
Enter C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-drivers.
Open oculus-driver.
Open the Oculus app and then try to connect your headset again.

A "check for updates" button in the app would definitely be on my priorities list if I were them haha

I'm experiencing very similar with you Jonny, whenever I use my USB 2.0 cable (Type A), I never get disconnected...but whenever I use my USB 3.0 cable (Type C - I only have this, and this is not the official oculus link cable. I even see people mentioning in forums that although they use the official oculus link cable, this random disconnection also happens), I got random disconnection, and you're right sometimes half an hour, sometimes within a minute, sometimes couple of minutes... can Oculus / Meta team solve this problem? Because indeed using the USB 3.0 cable, I could feel the quality is better (visual and also sound), although not significant.

I tried this but sadly still does not work for me...
