It appears the connection is made using the “Bluetooth PAN” connection. No idea how/why it uses that name; I have since renamed the connection.

Hello Andre - The Bluetooth Pan connection does not have anything to do with the docking station and I would disable this instance. Do you see the link lights on the docking station when an Ethernet cable is attached? Are you connecting to a home, work or school network?
