I recently purchased a Vive Wireless Kit. The Vive works perfectly fine when I have the long wires hooked up. When I start up the Vive Wireless program it says "Can't find any headset" When I hit pair it says to push the button on the battery and then hit the logo on the wireless unit when it lights up. The wireless unit never lights up.
When I push the button on the battery the lens will light up for a split second and the light on the side of the headset is a solid red. The battery is fully charged, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling SteamVR and the Vive Wireless program. I have the linkbox hooked up to power and the usb to the computer only, all cables have been unplugged and plugged back in. I can also plug all the long cables back in and they still work great. Power is obviously traveling through the wireless unit as it heats up and the red light stays on the headset. I should also note that I have the card installed on the motherboard with the camera on my monitor.

If I'm understanding you correctly, you still have the linkbox connected to the PC? You should only have the Wireless Adapter connected. The standard linkbox will not be used in this configuration.

I've read that the lighthouses need the linkbox for bluetooth connection. I have attempted to setup the vive wireless with and without the linkbox connected.

I had a problem getting the wireless to connect, the first time i set it up. it worked perfectly then the headset went flat. so i charged it (3.0QC charger) then wouldnt work. i had to fully uninstall all steam VR and wireless. reset it up with the cord. then reinstalled the wireless and it has worked flawlessly since.
