Ethernet Connection to Surface Pro 6 via Surface Dock and Techole USB adapter RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    we have 3 hardware components: Surface Pro 6, Surface Dock without Ethernet port and Techole USB hub with Ethernet port.

    Surface Pro 6 +  Techole USB hub connects very well with our LAN. Meaning we simply plug to the only USB 3.0 port the Techole USB 3.0 LAN hub and get full bandwidth.  But if we plug the surface dock in between, it does not work anymore. We we were told that the dock can easily pass USB 3.0 as if we would connect directly the only one USB 3.0 port of the surface. This is generally true, but not when connecting to our LAN. Is this a bug or a feature ? We only learned during CORONA that we need the Ethernet connected to the surface, therefore didn't start with a dock also providing ethernet.
