Oculus/Meta headset causing havoc with other devices

I got an unlimited package using a 5G gigacube about 12 months ago...

 

The service has been a little unreliable at times but on the whole ok (apart from the annoying NAT3 gaming issue which is another story)

 

My son got an oculus quest headset for Christmas and whenever he uses it, almost every other device in the house experiences extremely slow speeds. The headset is ok but the PS5, smart TV iPads, etc are all basically unusable.

 

It's only the Oculus that seems to cause this. Does anyone have any idea why it's happening or how to fix it?

Yes multicast broadcasts flooding the WiFi on the GIGACUBE yo could try setting up a second WiFi channel just for the quest and keep the well behaved devices on the fast network

The Oculus Quest headset may be using up all of your bandwidth, which is why other devices in your home are experiencing slow speeds. You can try to fix this by connecting the headset to Ethernet or by using a QoS router to prioritize traffic for other devices.

Additional tips:

  1. You can also try to reduce the bandwidth usage of the Oculus Quest headset by lowering the graphics settings or by using a lower resolution.
