Sometimes the green “usb” light on the front of the UD-3900 turns off and my wireless keyboard and mouse lose connection. After about 10 seconds I hear the Windows USB-connection tone and then they work again. Sometimes the connection never reestablishes and I have to restart the computer.

Thanks for posting! I’m sorry to hear about this USB connection issue, but I’d be happy to help.
Generally, the first steps we’ll want to take is to make sure that the software used by the dock is in a good state by reinstalling the DisplayLink software and running the DisplayLink cleaner tool. To do so, please follow these steps:
Disconnect the dock from the system and please remove the power cable from the dock so it turns off completely (this is important so the unit resets). Please keep it disconnected until the last step
Uninstall any and all software with ‘DisplayLink’ in the title that is present from within the Control Panel -> Programs and Features. Don’t worry if these entries are not present or if the process does not work, just move onto the next step
Hi Mitchell, I don’t have any DisplayLink software on my computer. Nothing in Program and Features and nothing in the list of running processes. Do you still recommend that I proceed with disconnecting and reconnecting the dock?
Did connecting the keyboard wireless dongle directly to your laptop help? If so, I’d like to investigate further into your system and dock.
Could you please keep the dock connected to your computer (with the dongle attached), then navigate to our PlugDebug tool (https://plugable.com/support/plugdebug/) and follow the instructions there? This will create a ZIP file on your Desktop containing system logs and information. Please send that file to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Ticket #237627” as the subject line (do not upload it here).
