Troubleshooting Common Connection Issues
Most of the time during connecting your Meta Quest 3 with Wi-Fi, the procedure goes rather smoothly and without problems but sometimes it happens that various challenges occur.
1. Connection Drops Frequently
Ensure your Meta Quest 3 is within an optimal range of the Wi-Fi router. Structural elements such as walls, floors, and obstacles, which are large in size may be responsible for the reduction of signal strength. Provide means to reduce adverse interference from other electronic devices or neighboring Wi-Fi networks.
The other workaround could be to change the channel of your router or alternate between 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. The multi-device connectivity using one and the same router may result in connection errors.
2. Can’t Find Your Network
Confirm that your network is not set to "hidden." If it is, manually enter your network's name (SSID).
3. Incorrect Password Errors
Double-check the entered password, considering that Wi-Fi passwords are case-sensitive. If your network password was recently updated, forget the network on your Meta Quest 3 and reconnect with the new password.
4. Issues with Dual-Band Networks
If one band is not connecting, try the other. For example, if 5GHz is problematic, attempt connecting to 2.4GHz. Distribute devices between bands to avoid overload. Remember, 5GHz offers faster speeds but has a shorter range compared to 2.4GHz.
5. Connecting in Public Spaces
Some public networks may require accepting terms and conditions. If connected but have no internet access, open the browser on your Meta Quest 3 to check for prompt pages. Be aware that some public networks have strict firewalls that may limit your Meta Quest 3's access to certain online features.
