USB dock stn: Keyboard and mouse not connecting reliably (Windows 8)

I am experiencing significant latency (delay) when using my wired USB mouse through the plugable USB 3.0 docking station. It is as though the station were transmitting a bare fraction of the movement events.

As frustrating as that is, the keyboard is worse (the keyboard! how hard could that be). It transmits very few events. There is also a latency and sometimes it spits out a dozen or so retransmissions of the same character typed (i.e. as though I had held the key down).

When I connect the devices directly to the laptop, I do not have these problems.

Also, the devices keep disconnecting and reconnecting spontaneously.

OS: Windows 8
Mouse: (Some no-name brand from Malaysia)
Keyboard: Dell
