Stream SteamVR via Oculus Link Cable

Purchase the original Oculus 5m / 16ft Link Cable on the >Oculus store<.
If you’re wondering about the price of 79.- it’s made of glass fibers to achieve the extra length.
Once the Quest is physically connected, the Quest can be used equivalently to a Rift S.
Also, this applies when wondering which games are compatible with Cybershoes.
See this link for our recommendations on >cable management<.

Stream SteamVR wirelessly to the Quest

Overview:
Use the 5G bands of a WIFI router that has 802.11ac standard.
Sideload Virtual Desktop to your Quest (you need to activate developer mode).

THE REASON WHY WE LOVE THIS METHOD:
Once you’re done with the setup, it’s the most convenient thing ever. Also, this empowers the use of your PC from the Quest plus gives you access to the Sidequest universe which is also really cool.

MOST DETAILED STEP BY STEP GUIDE:

  • Reserve about 2 hours, you’ll need to download the heavy software packages from Oculus, Steam, and SteamVR.

    HARDWARE PART
  • Use a WIFI router ( >amazon link< ) that has the 802.11ac standard.
    Wire up ( >amazon link< ) the WAN port of the router with your internet modem.
    Wire up one LAN port of the router with your PC. This speeds up the data rate.
    Connect your Quest using the 5G WIFI network.

    VIRTUAL DESKTOP

    TEST STEAMVR then INSTALL CYBERSHOES from STEAM
  • Start Virtual Desktop from inside the Quest
  • Connect with your PC from inside Virtual Desktop.
    If you can’t find the PC: make sure the WAN port of the router is connected with the internet, the LAN port of the router with the PC, and that the Quest is in the same WIFI network as the router.
    Now you can already take full control of your PC.
  • Start Steam VR
  • Exit SteamVR and install Cybershoes from Steam
  • Don’t forget to connect the Cybershoes receiver to the PC!
