Steam Link not working with Quest 3


Update 2024: It has been fixed for me and steam link now works even with older AMD drivers. It work very well even, I prefer to use it over airlink or Virtual Desktop.


Steam link is not working for me. I have steam open, when I click "connect" on my headset steam link app I get "host not responding" error 200.

When I start SteamVR on my PC manually first, then click "connect" on my steam link app in the headset I get a window saying "Stream initializing", "Connecting to host PC is taking longer than usual..."

The app tells me the headset is paired, airlink is working fine.


Does anyone else have issues?


Ahh! Gotcha! Thank you so much for sharing that information! Umm yeah most users do use Virtual Desktop a lot. 

We are all mad here.

It's a wonderful app for so many reasons, but Steam Link cuts out the "middle man" and provides what feels like a more responsive and lightweight experience. If one's goal is to play Steam games and apps on the Quest wirelessly, (I would guess this is at least half of the reason people use Virtual Desktop to begin with), Steam Link seems to be a more righteous path.

I am still having this problem... After reading here I was really hoping it will be solved after updating everything but it wasn't... Not sure what to do
