Update 3 - Solved problem:(Win10 Anniversary Update)
- Turned Airplane Mode On (As suggested in other posts/on site) which recognized and successfully attached the DP2x and passed the DP signal to the monitor
- However, once I tried to connect to wireless the DP signal dropped and the DP2x was no longer attached.
- Dropped power level to Wireless to 75% and this didn’t work.
- Dropped power level to Wireless to 50% and success.
Hope that helps anyone else with the same problem. This is my girl friends notebook, so if she’s not happy the house is not happy
Not sure what the root cause is on either Dell/Intel or Plugable sides (I imagine it’s either Dell/Intel)
Thanks for posting, and thanks for the follow-up letting us know you got things working. I cover this behavior (and recommended workarounds) in more detail in my post on the subject -> http://plugable.com/2016/06/30/invest…
Very interesting that in your case the Wi-Fi transmit power needed to be lowered to 50%, thanks for taking the time to test that and share the results. Given the behavior we have seen helping other customers, we suspect the root cause lies with Dell and/or the Dell-branded wireless adapter (made by Broadcom). In the comments to my blog post there are reports of customers replacing the internal Dell Wi-FI adapter with an Intel branded one and that helping with the behavior.
Thanks again for sharing your results!
