Quest 2 Air Link Connecting but stuck on loading screen

Honored Guest

I'm having trouble with my Quest 2 Air Link connecting to my laptop. I've used Air Link for a while now and it was working fine on the 19th (9/19/2022) before I ran into the issue of it suddenly being stuck on a loading screen whenever I try to connect.


Sometimes It says that the headset is ready and I can even get a notif from Discord saying a new audio device was detected, all green circles too. Then when I wait for the Air Link to go through it just keeps loading.


Specs: (I dont know what not to put and what to put, sorry)

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 4600 with Raedon Graphics

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650

GPU: AMD Radeon(TM) Graphics


My laptop has been working just fine since most likely mid-summer up until the 19th and i've tried the following fixes. 

-turned on beta server

-turned off beta serv, restarted app, turned back on beta serv, restart app again

-restart pc as a whole

-restart quest

-change wifi on both

-change wifi on both to different ones

-change wifi to different ones and then back

-plugging it into my laptop to use link cable

-rollback and redownload drivers

-update windows

-set all graphics to prioritize my High Performance graphics rather than to let windows decide.


Same problem still occurring after changing my graphics card from NVIDIA to AMD that is supported and disabled any type of VPN I may have.

Hi @minouuwu! We sincerely appreciate all the troubleshooting you've done so far to get Air Link working again. We want to jump in and help how we can. To do this, please gather logs following THESE instructions and attach the resulting file to a support ticket HERE. We'll be happy to look into this further. Thanks!

Whenever I attempt to gather logs I can only get to 86% before being prompted with Windows Error Reporting and the small window stating what it is gathering disappears shortly after. Should I simply let the program run in the background until it's done or is there a problem with the program obtaining the logs?

Try to let it run in the background and see if you're able to get the file we need. Let us know if it doesn't work, and send in a support ticket anyway so our teams can start looking into this with you.

I have a similar problem and the same technical specifications. Quest connects partially - the audio output from the computer works, controller tracking probably works - but the headset just doesn't. I'm stuck in a black world (and sometimes endlessly seeing those loading dots) and whenever I try to launch a VR app/game, I get an error on my computer: "Oculus isn't working correctly. Click here to check our support article." Is there any solution yet?

Heya @etboy15. PCVR is fun and we don't want you to miss out on that. If you haven't already, can you please try all of the troubleshooting steps that @minouuwu tried in their initial post? If none of those help, we would like for you to send us a PM so we can look into this further for you.

I've tried everything on the list except link cable (because I stand by the fact that I want to play wirelessly) and none of that solved the problem. I've also tried a few other things like reinstalling the Oculus app, putting the headset in factory settings, or temporarily disabling firewall on my computer. I made sure all the important processes were running on the NVIDIA card and not the integrated one. Again, none of that helped. I tried searching all over the internet and found a bunch of tutorials regarding this endless loading, but even those didn't help. Seems like this is a bigger problem that a lot of people are dealing with, and there is no single solution that works for everyone. Welp... I can send a PM if I feel like it, and hope not to get some ridiculous 'fix' that doesn't fix anything. For any future readers of this thread - if I find a solution that works for me, I'll let you know.

Hi there, @etboy15. Thank you for reaching back out and letting us know of the troubles you're having with the Airlink connection. We know that any sort of connection issue can and will interrupt your VR experience, and we would like to lend a hand to figure this out. We see that you have done a bit of troubleshooting on your own; however, we would like to gather your logs so we can take a look at what may be causing your issue.


Can you do the following?


Gathering log information.

  1. Connect the headset to the PC
  2. Find the Oculus installation directory (Generally this will be located at 'C:\Program Files\Oculus')
  3. Navigate to Support and then oculus-diagnostics
  4. Double-click OculusLogGatherer and wait for an executable to appear
  5. Select Get All Logs
  6. This will create a .zip file on the PC desktop. Attach that zip file to the reply.
