1200 mbps available but not good enough

I have a Wifi 6 netgear WAX610 that is giving a 1200mbps WiFi connection. The business streaming app will only render an image if set at 40mbps? Is there a way of optimising this to use 76 or 100 mbps?

Also, maybe there could be more choice of speeds i.e. 40,50,60,70 mbps so that we could find the sweet spot in the mid range. The jump from 40 to 70 is massive.

@helponhand I believe the client is currently capped at 100mbps

I am only able to use 40mbps and cant get anywhere near 100. I have 1200mbps connection and only drops to about 1100 How can I get to use 100? If I go above 40 I have no picture.

As in... I have 1200mbps available, but have to connect at 40.

There's something wrong there for sure. I have used it with a 3070 on 100mbps and it worked great - very smooth.

Is your headset actually connecting at 1200?

Do you change the streaming settings to 100 before you connect to it?

Is your computer connected to the netgear with a cable?

No, When i open business streaming app it shows that the wifi signal at 1200mbps, but if i set the business streaming app any higher than 40bps the stream fails and I just get a spinning icon. I tried at 70 and get the spinning icon, but then setting to 40 will bring up the image and streaming works.

Effectively, my wifi is capable of transmitting at 1200bps, but the business streaming app tops out at 40 and will not work any higher. I have checked the wifi with an analyser and look ok. Have attached an image of the wifi analyser.

Is is on channel 60 5Ghz and 1201mbps strength. Band width is 80mhz and signal -29 dBm.

I have similar issues sometimes, but it works for me when I do this:

- (Make sure your boundary is set up)

- Make sure Steam is completely closed

- Open Vive Business Streaming app on your PC

- Set the quality level you want in the app

- Open Steam and SteamVR - make sure SteamVR loads ok and shows the thumbnails of your headset and controllers

- In the headset, open the Streaming app

Not sure if this will work for you, but hopefully it will. I found that my SteamVR would not load properly sometimes and the headset would sit on the blue spinning thing. Sometimes SteamVR would crash and try to reload multiple times - opening before the streaming app in the headset seemed to alleviate this.

Thanks for the info. I will give it a go. I have resorted to using the USB for now, but would love to get wiifi working better to use untethered.

I wanted to post an update on the WiFi issue I had with the Focus 3.

The problem of not being able to connect to WiFi streaming with the Business streaming app at more than 40Mbps is now resolved. I connected a WiFi Access Point (Netgear WAX610) through a 2.5Gbps network switch (TP-Link TL-SG108-M2) and connected the PC into the TP-Link switch via LAN on the PC's 10Gbps LAN port, which automatically makes it 2.5Gbps.

Where I was struggling to get 40 frames/sec with a 15ms latency at 40Mbps, I now get 90 frames/sec at 0.9ms latency at 100Mbps.

As you can see, the 2.5Gbps Lan connection for everything other than WiFi has made a dramatic difference. I just wanted to post this so that others that may be suffering connection issues have another possible solution to their problem.
