VA-UC016 9-in-1 hub: Ethernet port not recognised

My ethernet connection works when connected directly to the port on my Dell Lattitude 5400. But Windows 10 doesn’t even recognize the port on the VA-UC016 hub.

I am already running a 2560x1440 HDMI monitor, 3 x USB devices already. I have a 100W power supply connected to it.

I am trying to minimize the number of cables I need to plug and unplug when ‘dock’ and ‘undock’ my laptop. So I don’t want to run the ethernet cable to my PC.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi @gangav. Try to turn off Wi-Fi when using the ethernet port of the hub if this wouldn’t work kindly unplug the hub from your computer and plug the ethernet cable to the hub before plugging into the computer.

I tried both - turning off wifi and plugging in the hub after the ethernet cable. Didn’t work.
It isn’t even showing up as an Ethernet Network Adapter.
