Your Oculus Quest can’t see Chromecast? This was a problem I fought with for 4 solid weeks. I went to Reddit and discovered I wasn’t alone. My buddy and I used 2 headsets, 13 networks and over 20 TVS to test, collect data, analyze, and test some more. We have 3 solutions that have successfully worked in all testing environments and networks.
Oculus Quest Can’t See Chromecast
You can watch the video or scroll below to see the diagram and receive the instructions in writing.
If you own your own equipment, disable the IPv6 on your router. If you have ISP provided equipment and you cannot disable it, or you want to keep IPv6 enabled, follow the diagram and instructions below.
- Connect your router to a Wi-Fi Extender, File Hub or Access Point
- Set up a unique network. I call mine Quest so there’s no confusion
- You’ll know you did this right if in your network you see your network in 2.4 and 5 gig bands, and the additional Quest network
- Connect the Chromecast to your TV or Monitor via HBMI
- Connect your Chromecast to the Quest Network
- You may need your wireless device that has Google Home on it to be on the same Quest Network
- Connect your Oculus Quest to the Quest Network
- Cast to the Chromecast
These steps as outlined will work with Chromecast version 3 and Ultra.
If you take the hardware to someone’s house, simply follow these same procedures to set up a new dedicated network. When you get back home, you’ll need to do it once more. Remember to reset the WiFi Extender to reset it to a new network. If you keep it in the same network, you can unplug it and move it often and once it’s powered back on, it’ll work in the same network. No reconfiguration needed.
If you have any comments, ways we can make this better, or have discovered your own fix, let me know! I would love to hear from you.
