Connecting your Meta Quest 2, TV, and mobile device all to the same Wi-Fi network is key for a smooth casting experience. This allows seamless communication between devices and ensures that your VR gameplay can be mirrored onto the TV screen without any hiccups.
To check your Wi-Fi connections, open your device’s Settings app, tap on “Network & internet” and then “Internet”, and look for the Wi-Fi network labeled as “Connected”.
