Dave78 Posted November 9, 2018 Share Posted November 9, 2018 Hi, I'm a first-time poster... I have a laptop and have just purchased the Vive Pro and I'm picking up the wireless addon tomorrow. I am aware the wireless addon requires a PCIe x1 slot and therein lies the issue as I am using a laptop which cannot have one internally. So I'm looking at purchasing some kind of caddy/external enclosure for the PCIe card but I can only connect it via the USB ports on the laptop. Luckily the laptop is brand new and has 2 x USB(3.1)-C generation 2 ports which I believe are capable of speeds of up to 10Gbps. So my question is, will this be enough? I'm not sure of the exact speeds a PCIe x1 slot is capable of but if it's below 10Gbps it should work fine. Can anyone confirm? Or even recommend a caddy/PCIe enclosure? Also if this is not going to work I could set up the Vive in the next room on the main desktop PC and play it wirelessly in the next room. It's only a stud partition wall and I'd be around 15ft away from the PC through the 1 single wall. Is this likely to work? I understand wireless works on line of sight so the wall will weaken the signal but has anyone tried this? What is the range? Thanks in advance for any help.
