Quest 3 Screen freezing when connected to PC

Honored Guest
Hello everyone,
I have a big problem with the Quest 3 when it is connected to the PC.
The screen freezes continuously, even when I am only on the desktop of the PC. The Quest is connected with a JSAUX Link cable, but the same problem also occurs via wifi. Sometimes the connection runs for 20 minutes, sometimes only 30 seconds.
I don't know what else to try, I have reset the entire Quest, downloaded all updates again but nothing changes. The PC I'm using is a high end Alienware PC, so I don't think there are any problems with the graphics card or similar.
I really need some help...

It does smell like a data transfer issue.

Is your PC wired to your router?
Also, if possible, try another cable to rule out this likely problem source.
