One of my co-workers has a Dell laptop with Windows 7 on it. She takes it home at night and is forced to unplug all the cables (mouse, keyboard, network, etc.) each time. To make it easier on her, I recently bought her a Kensington K33926US docking station to use with the laptop. The device is described here:
It works except for one nagging problem: I can't connect to the network through the docking station. If I plug the Ethernet cable directly into the laptop, everything works fine. If I plug it into the docking station, then the computer can't see the network.
I'm not even sure how it's supposed to work. Is there a Kensington-specific adapter that's supposed to appear in the list of Network Adapters? If so, it's not appearing. All I see is the regular adapters.
Since there is no utility that came with the docking station (the drivers were installed automatically the first time that I powered-up the computer with the device attached) I'm not sure how to even begin troubleshooting this thing.
