Hi :)
I want to stream games from my PC to Oculus Quest 2 wirelessly via router. The common way is to get dedicated router for this, connect it via Ethernet to your main router, then create access point and connect your PC via Ethernet and VR headset via Wi-Fi 6 to this dedicated router. I've made a scheme to make it more clear https://ibb.co/27Fvd2x
My problem is that my main router is on the attic and it would be a bit problematic to connect routers trough Ethernet. I wondering if there is some option to connect routers trough Wi-Fi connection? I've made a scheme for this as well https://ibb.co/sm1hv0F
Is there any possibility to get devices connected like on the second draft?

I will add the thought/question about perhaps using power line adapters between the two routers.

Also, as a general observation - in your wired diagram I believe the orange connection shown should be Router 1[LAN] to Router 2 [LAN].

Versus LAN to WAN as shown.

I don't know how many WIFI6 routers will support a WIFI bridge mode -- which is required for your second drawing.
Asus might. They have some of the most flexible firmware.

I have been searching about it before but I was not sure how it works. It is a bit hard for me to find information about that mode in specific routers. As far as I know Asus got Media Bridge mode and I could just use Ethernet ports to connect devices then. I need Ethernet and Wifi connection at the same time unfortunately.

To be honest I did not know that something like this existed and I think it will solve my problem :)

I was following this guide drawing that diagram https://arvrtips.com/virtual-desktop-on-oculus-quest/ I am not sure what is the difference between LAN and WAN and I have drown it as I had understood it. I guess I just overcomplicated that situation and didn't make it clear enough because I don't understand much of it.

I am really thankful for your answers, I think I got a solution for my problem.
