Link Cable vs Wifi

Honored Guest

This question has probability already been asked but I can't find it on here. Due to Family concerns we are not using the wifi on our router because they don't like the "radiation" that emits from it, with this I cannot play online using my meta quest 2. However I found that there exist a link cable but I'm unsure if it will replace the need for wifi or bluetooth if I connect the quest 2 directly to my computer instead? 


The cable doesn't give internet or online access. It's purely to allow you to access PCVR games.

I think you should be able to use it with a decent usb-c cable. Because you will be running the game on the PC and it will be connected to internet by the ethernet cable. The Quest should be possible to run without wifi, and connect to the pc via link cable. But you have to test it out yourself, you can use a shorter cable to try it out @Vevenox 

Hey there, @Vevenox! Thanks for reaching out with your question about using a Link cable instead of WiFi! @user_901925786032222 and @Rolldabeatz are both correct! Our Meta Quest Link cable doesn't provide your Quest with internet access; it's used to transfer data between your Quest and your PC. Even if you don't have WiFi, your Quest should still be able to connect to your PC and access the internet via an Ethernet connection. We kindly ask that you test that and inform us if it is effective. We're looking forward to your reply!
