Hello sabahjones,

Thank you for reaching out to Plugable Support!

I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with your docking station, but I would be happy to help diagnose this issue.

Can you confirm that you are trying to connect to your MacBook using the included Thunderbolt 3 cable that came with your dock? We’ve seen issues arise when a third party cable is used, and we even have an article on our website addressing this issue.

Thank you,

Plugable Technologies
