Despite all the googling, I was only able to resolve my situation by going hard-core and searching for "Oculus" in the registry and deleting everything except for entries that had specific game titles in them. I tried every other solution listed under the sun or on the web (except for reinstalling windows… I refused to do that.) and this was the only way to make it work again! But it works! 😊

What network frequency do you have? For everything to work properly, you need a 5Ghz router

I have a router 5ghz, i have connected my pc by ethernet cable, and my oculus are connected in the 5ghz

Repair the oculus app on the pc there is an option for it on the app and then go into the oculus and make sure software is up to date 

im still cant connect to my pc 

If the headset detects the PC, but won't pair, it's most likely connection based. While your PC may be hardwired to the router, your headset could still be having issues communicating with the PC over the network. There's an easy way to tell if your headset and PC can communicate properly. If you take the Mac address of the headset (found in the about section through your headset's settings), you can use a CMD command to scan your network for devices. 


Find your headset's Mac address in the CMD window, and you should see a Static/dynamic IP next to it. If you ping that IP, it will send packets to that connection. You'll either get Reply followed by the IP (which means it can communicate), or you'll get a Request timed out error (which means it cannot communicate). 


The network scan is "arp -a" without the quotation marks, and the ping command is just /ping {your headset's IP}. Make sure you're running CMD as an administrator before doing this, and make sure your headset is turned on an connected to the same network ssid as your PC. 


If you're on a network that is recognized as "public" (i.e, apartment supplied Wi-Fi, Hotel Wi-Fi, etc.), you might just need to whitelist the Mac address of your headset and PC LAN port through your router's settings. This should give the headset the correct network permissions it needs.


We'd be able to help out a bit better if we could get your log files through a support ticket. We'll review the logs and get back to you to help troubleshoot as quickly as we can after you send them in!

I ran into the same issue as well, and here are the steps I tried to get it to work:
- Rename the computer's network name, and
- Restart the computer

After this I was able to connect via Quest/Air Link again.

I appreciate the suggestions from Oculus support to ping the headset - I was able to successfully ping the headset from the Desktop. This made me rule out network issues. Then I started trying random trouble shooting methods and this is what worked.

Thank you. Glad you posted your solution to the problem just in time for me to notice I'm having the problem myself. Your solution worked.


What do you mean by renaming the computer's network name ? You mean the SSID of the Wifi network ?
