My Quest 2 is on a different local subnet than the PC I am trying to connect to with Air Link

Level 2

Should this work because I can't get it to?

I use pfSense for my router and firewall. I have made firewall rules allowing communication between my Quest 2 and PC and have also installed the Oculus app on my PC. The PC has a wired connection and the Quest is using 5G WiFi @ 80Hz.

Something to note is the PC I am trying to connect to also doubles as a Plex server and works just fine on my Roku which is on the same wireless VLAN as my Quest 2.

I so far cannot find any info online that explains how Air Link works like how it finds PC's to connect to or whether or not it can find PC's located on a different local subnet. Do I need port forwarding or something? Any info that would help me get this working would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a router issue.  I would disable everything and only hook up the PC to the router and quest 2.
