Ethernet connection is not working after a change in router

My Asus router got fried and the replacement is a few days away. I made a direct ethernet connection to the cable modem. The Plugable UD-6950H shows it is connected but has no internet access. The system is a Dell XPS13 and the adapter is Realtek USB GbE Family Controller. Driver version is 1153.10.20.1104. I know internet in the house is working because the other Dell laptop that I have that never sat on a dock has internet access. Can you please help with a process for restoring internet access via the Plugable dock? Thanks in advance.
