Extreme Air Link Lag

Honored Guest

I've recently tried air link with my pc and headset, but I'm always met with an extreme amount of lag. I have no apps open that can cause stress on to either devices, my router is in the same room as both, and I use my Quest 2 only a few feet from it. I use a medium-end computer, a NIVDIA Geforce RTX 3060 ti, and it has no problems running games. What is the problem and how can I fix it?


I am having the exact same issue. I used my Oculus Quest 2 with Air Link across 2023 without any issues. Same PC, Same connection, Same Router, everything is the same. My Pc is a HIGH end PC with a 3080 TI and a I7 from the last generation with 64 GB of Ram. When I am in the Oculus Quest 2 lobby I have no lag at all, lag only starts when I go to Air Link. 

I have tried everything, activating PTC, installing latest updates in both the app and the headset, changing the resolution and refresh rate, etc. Nothing helps. Everytime I enter Air Link its impossible to use, with almost 5 seconds delay in any input or mote. 

If I use my Quest Link cable it works perfectly. It's only with Air Link. I want to stress again that nothing has changed in my set up or connection and nothing is interfering with the Wi Fi. All other devices work fine and the problem happens even next to the router.


If you want to connect your PC just to play in Steam, use Steam Link. Used it and it works like a charm. Just some slight input lag, but at least its a partial fix kinda.

I have the same issue and have arrived at the same conclusion.  Use Steam Link.
