Lagging/Stuttering airlink

Honored Guest

Hello.  I have been playing VR exclusively on the quest for the past 3 years. I got my hands on a Q3 about a month ago, and started playing my usual PCVR games through airlink. But around two weeks ago it began stuttering/lagging so much that it is impossible to play anything.This is the case for airlink, steamlink, and virtual desktop. It seems to only be in the VR headset itself. As when i look at my monitor the game runs without any issues at all, but only in the VR headset. I have had no previous experiences like this. My wifi is 5ghz, and i meet all the requirements both in specs and airlink setup. So by now i have no idea on how to fix this problem.

I think we should maybe merge a few of these lagging stuttering threads. The message/information is being fragmented.

Hello! Just wanted to pop up on here since @Galatoni mentioned the info is being fragmented and I agree. So to me, this issue seems like it could be in relation to this thread here: Quest 3 Airlink micro lags and stutter esp. when moving head.

I'll also be locking this thread.
