Why can't I update or configure my base stations wirelessly in the SteamVR app?

Important: Make sure you have SteamVR app version 1533664367 or later installed on your computer.
The SteamVR app on your computer communicates with the base stations through Bluetooth. You need the original link box to be able to update the base stations' firmware or configure its settings.

Connect the original link box that came with your headset back to your computer. You just need to connect it to your computer's USB port and plug in its power adapter. If you're using VIVE Pro, you will also need to power on its link box.

Note: Make sure not to connect the DisplayPort cable to the link box of VIVE Pro. The PCIe WiGig card and wireless link box handle the video signal, and if you plug in the DisplayPort cable as well, your computer might get confused. When the cable is connected, the headset may not show anything on its display.
