Quest refusing to link with a pc via cable or airlink

Honored Guest

when i try to link to my pc, which has worked for almost 2 years on my oculus quest it comes up with two errors, in notifications, 1st is "could not find your headset" and the 2nd is "Oculus isnt working correctly". ive reinstalled the quest app twice, on different dirves, differnet accounts, ive even factory reset my headset, and tried multiple cables, but it always comes up with the same error, this problem started yesterday, pls help.


in order to help you so that someone can help you I suggest you specify:
1 which Meta device you have the problem with
2 firmware versions that currently equip your devices
3 the os of your pc and if the drivers (IF YOU USE A CABLE CONNECTION ESPECIALLY THE USB THOSE) are all updated to the latest version
4 the type of connection to the router
5) the version of the oculus software you currently have installed on your PC
I understand the hassle, but the more specific you are, the higher the chance that someone here in the community can help you.
hope you fix it soon.
Meta Quest 2 256GB, GC Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060, Intel 12th Gen Intel i5-12400F, 16Gb RAM, Windows 11 home 22H2. Connected with dedicated router via ethernet cat 6 with pc and to Quest 2 on wifi 5 ch 36

In addition to updating your drivers and making sure that your PC is running to the capabilities of the Quest. You should also keep in mind things like firewalls that prevent connections. Check that your computer meets the specified criteria. Try manually configuring the USB port so that when you connect the quest, it recognizes the device.
