I have read some posts here and there and found out, that Quest3 supports USB-Ethernet Adapter.

After some tests, the best adapter ist this: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B0C3GHBLB6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

It works great, i can charge my quest at gaming and if i start at 95%...play a hour....i end at 95%.

It´s a absolut stable connection without interferences and i can use godlike with 500mbps!

(measured is ~480mbps, but 500mbps works without any problem)

 

For me the best PCVR link/experience i can get!

 

For use you need:

-developer account

-activated USB debugging

-DHCP in Router

 

Short summary:

-turn off WLAN in Quest 3

-LAN cable to router <> adapter

-PD to adapter

-Adapter to Quest 3

-Turn on and check if the store is loading without WLAN, then you know, it´s working

 

Greetings....ah, and if a meta developer read this: PLEASE DON`T TURN OFF THIS FEATURE!

p.s. i know, not english, but google knows. 😉

Some computers don't have USB-C but they probably do have a gigabit Ethernet connection. Your speeds are reaching near max USB-C 3.1 speeds.

I tried looking for the version of these items in English using the listing id's. It's easier to find the model on different regions using the ASIN.

The problem is when you load these links it defaults to the first item.

What sizes are you using for each of the cables... the sideload and cable to adapter?

Also is your USB-C Ethernet adapter the one without the side connector? Or is it the first one?

Sideload

ASIN: B0CLZSZ79H

Part: A0208-0.25

Length: 0.25m

Cable to Adapter

ASIN: B0C1N1KHNP

Part: USBC-29

Model: A0205

Length: 2m

Adapter

ASIN: B0C3GHBLB6

Part: UA95-23

Type: USB-C P+D

Charger

ASIN: B0B7B97J6K

Item: 90666

USB-C Cable

ASIN: B07PLSDPYN

Item: 50150

Length: 1m

The adapter with PD connection is the right one.
(RTL8153 Chip)

I use a 0.25cm on the Quest so that I don't have to constantly load the Quest's USB port, so I can also plug in the link cable here, for example.

This is followed by a 2m extension cable to the adapter, which is sufficient for simulations.

Thanks, that chip is in all the ones in that series.

So the model is: UA95-23

I'm going to test it with the Quest 2.

Oh, Quest2...not really working, it´s disabled.

Look here, how to re-enable, but´s not plug&play.

Thank you! so it looks like it needs to be put in Developer mode and re-enabled with adb.

https://developer.oculus.com/documentation/native/android/ts-adb/

I'll try this...

adb shell setprop debug.usb.ethernet.enabled 1

I tried it once, it works, but it´s not plug&play.

Meta had disabled it in a older firmware for whatever reason, so I hope it stays that way with the Quest3.
