If you receive an error while trying to connect your Oculus Go to Wi-Fi, you may need to connect to another Wi-Fi network.

To change the Wi-Fi network your Oculus Go is connected to from your phone:

  1. Turn on your Oculus Go and open the Oculus app on your phone.
  2. Tap Settings from the bottom menu.
  3. Tap the headset that you are currently using.
  4. Tap Wi-Fi.
  5. Tap the new Wi-Fi network you’d like to connect to and enter the password, if prompted.

To change the Wi-Fi network your Oculus Go is connected to from your Oculus Go:

  1. Turn on your Oculus Go and put on your headset.
  2. Select Settings from the bottom toolbar menu.
  3. Select Wi-Fi.
  4. Select the Wi-Fi network you'd like to connect to.
  5. If prompted, enter the password for the Wi-Fi network you'd like to connect to.
  6. Select Connect to connect to the Wi-Fi network.

Note: You won't be able to use a captive portal, a web page that prompts you to interact with it before connecting you to the internet, to set up Oculus Go.

Captive portals are commonly used by public Wi-Fi networks in businesses, airports, hotels, and other venues that offer free Wi-Fi hotspots. While this type of network won't work to set up your Oculus Go, it may work after completing your initial setup.
