SteveCole Posted September 8, 2018 Share Posted September 8, 2018 Hi, I'm about to place pre-order for Vive Wireless Adapter, but I had some technical questions about the set up process and some confusion. I would appreciate some clarification. Most buyers already have either a Vive or Vive Pro readily set up and they're just adding the adapter. The Wireless Adapter set up guide assumes this as well I think. However, I'll be purchasing both the Vive Pro and Vive Wireless Adapter and setting them up for the first time. Here are my questions: 1 - The Vive Wireless Adapter instructions says "make sure you've completed the set up for Vive/Vive Pro first before you proceed". This means installing Vive Pro through the wired link box that comes with Vive Pro, attach cables, complete room set up etc, then disconnecting everyting and reconnecting through wireless link box with Wireless Adapter. Can we just directly set up the Vive Pro through the wireless link box that comes with Wireless Adapter, complete room set up etc and bypassing the wired link box altogether? 2 - What if we need to redo the Vive Pro set up, room set up or make changes to room set up etc after installing Wireless Adapter? Should we disconnect the Wireless Adapter, connect everything the old way, complete set up and then disconnect and reconnect the Wireless Adapter back? 3 - The Wireless link box is called so because it replaces the link box that comes with Vive/Vive Pro. Does this mean we can fully disconnect the original link box and get rid of it completely after successfully installing Vive Wireless Adapter? Is the old link box needed at all? 4 - If your answer to Q3 is "Yes we can get rid of old link box", then are we able to shut down the base stations through bluetooth when play session is over? Can we communicate and update Vive Pro peripherals (base stations and controllers) via bluetooth? 5 - If your answer to Q3 is "No we still need the old link box connected", then can we disconnect the Displayport cable that goes from link box to GPU? Does the GPU still needs to be connected to old link box? 6 - Does Vive Wireless Adapter allow us to use all of the functionality of Vive Pro such as both cameras and mic? Any limitations? 7 - This question is kinda dumb lol but still making sure. I have an Asus Rampage VI Extreme motherboard. It has built in WiGig 60Ghz and WiGig port. Can we skip the PCI-E installation of WiGig card for Wireless Adapter and connect the Wireless link box directly to motherboard WiGig port? Do motherboards with built in WiGig support still need the installation of PCI-E add-on card? Thanks for help :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
