I am using a Lenovo Z40 (WIN 10) which doesn’t have an Ethernet port so I’m plugging the Ethernet cable into the back of the port and using the USB 3 output into the laptop. I ran Speed Test and confirmed that download speed is only 2.9 MBs.
To eliminate the network as being the problem, I plugged the same Ethernet cable into another laptop (Win 10) (that has an Ethernet port) and reran Speed Test. The download speeds were much higher - consistently around 28 MBs
The bottleneck has to be between the Docking station and the laptop. I checked windows updates and everything is current. I also updated the DisplayLink drivers to 7.9.
Is there a driver update for Ethernet that I’m missing or any suggestions to fix the slow internet connection when going through the plugable USB 3.0 Docking Station?
