Stream SteamVR with the Oculus Link Cable

✅ Easy setup.
✅ Good quality of video signal.
❌ Recommended >cable management< is needed.
❌ Same games not supported (compatibility like the Rift S)

Stream SteamVR wirelessly with Virtual Desktop

✅ More games compatible with Cybershoes
✅ You are free. No cable issues to disturb your experience.
✅ Lower Cost: 802.11ac WIFI router + Virtual Desktop app.
❌ Video signal has compression artifacts on detail-rich surfaces when in motion.

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<.


  • Reserve about 2 hours, you’ll need to download the heavy software packages from Oculus, Steam, and SteamVR, and put your Quest into the developer mode.
  • Get a WiFi router that has 802.11ac or 802.11ax standard. Most likely, the router that comes from your internet provider isn’t good enough.
  • Then sideload Virtual Desktop to your Quest (you need to activate developer mode).

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.

  • Use a WiFi router ( e.g. >amazon link< ) that has the 802.11ac or 802.11ax 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.
  • Purchase Virtual Desktop on your Quest
  • Install the free >Virtual Desktop Streamer App< on your PC and
  • enter your Oculus account user name in the PC Streamer App
  • Install >Sidequest< on your PC
  • Connect your Quest with the PC via USB 2.0 or 3.0 cable
  • Follow their guide to activate DEVELOPER MODE on your QUEST
  • Sideload (=update) Virtual Desktop using Sidequest
  • >Video Guide by Tyco Tech<
  • 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. Also, check your Oculus user name.
    Now you can already take full control of your PC.
