Airlink can’t find my PC at all, not even showing in the pair menu. It used to, I need help.

Honored Guest

I tried looking it up and trying various things I found here and nothing I could find short of resetting my headset to factory has helped. I really don’t want to sacrifice my save games, and logging in sucks on Meta for me as it’s connected to my mom’s Facebook, she set it up years ago. also what if it doesn’t even work then? I’ve tried :
Rebooting the pc and headset numerous times
Using an Ethernet cable
Resetting my router. A lot.
Trying both bands of my network (it has 5GHz and 2.4)
Reinstalling oculus software on my computer 
Checking for updates of both windows and link software
Allowing it through my firewall actively
Running OVRServer.exe as admin
Is there anything else I can try when I get up tomorrow?
I hate playing with a cable because of how easy they can break through normal use (I’ve gone through 3 in 3 years, they must be really shoddily made)
I’m on windows 11
