Cannot get Gigabit speed from DisplayLink USB3.0 Docking Stations

Q: Cannot get Gigabit speed from DisplayLink USB3.0 Docking Stations

I have tried two different DisplayLink-driven USB 3.0 Docking Stations with my Yoga 700, and neither of them can achieve Gigabit Ethernet speeds. The docks I've tried are the Besthing USB 3.0 Docking Station, and the Sabrent USB 3.0 Docking Station, both of which use DisplayLink as driver software, and both feature Gigabit Ethernet ports. I have 1Gbps WAN access from Comcast, and if I use a plain Gigabit-to-USB adapter plugged into the Yoga, I get expected speeds in the neighborhood of 950Mbps. However, if I connect through one of the DisplayLink docking stations, my speed immediately drops to about 100Mbps. This leads me to believe that there is an issue with DisplayLink or their drivers, which is why I bought a second docking station to troubleshoot, but so far DisplayLink Support has been unable to provide a solution, and are shifting the blame to the dock manufacturers. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the DisplayLink driver software several times, including trying the latest Beta versions, and have tried plugging the Docking Stations in to both of the Yoga 700's USB 3 ports, with the same results. Has anyone had any luck getting Gigabit speeds when connecting a Yoga to a DisplayLink-enabled USB 3.0 Docking Station? Are there any other troubleshooting steps I can take? Thanks,R

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

Hi all..
i don't know where this issue come from.
This problem happens on my DELL XPS 13 QHD 2015.

anytime i am plugging my laptop to my DELL D3100 USB 3 docking station and watching a movie through YouTube or anything else(like VLC and MediaPlayer) i experience high CPU usage that come from Displaylink Manager Application service - it goes around 56-80% of usage and my laptops fan going crazy and very noisy..
i also checked with CPU ID and found out that my CPU temperature goes up to 97-103 Celsius.

does anyone had this issue before and know what to do?

i am really frustrated cause i am a student and i just can't watch my classes (playbacks) through my second screen (27" Full HD Screen) which is much more convenient.

Thanks a lot for your help .

edited: i have the latest driver according to DisplayLink website.

Dear Tech Support Guys,

I have a Gigabit Capable Router. The Router being the NETGEAR WNR3500L Model. Which you can view from here... http://www.netgear.com/home/products/wirelessrouters/work-and-play/WNR3500L.aspx

I also have a Gigabit Capable NIC Card. The NIC Card being the TRENDnet TEG-PCITXR Model. Which you can view from here... http://www.trendnet.com/products/proddetail.asp?prod=140_TEG-PCITXR&cat=14

I also have the connection between both the NIC Card and the Router using FastEthernet Cabling (Hence: Category 5e). I am aware that Category 5e can support Gigabit connections. When both me and another one purchased the Gigabit Capable Router and NIC Card we connected to the NETWORK at 1.0 Gbps. A few months down the road, and now we both can only connect at 10.0 Mbps. We have both tried uninstalling, reinstalling, updating the drivers/software/NIC Card. We have also tried changing the cables in which connect from the NIC Card to the Router. I am aware that I will not connect to the internet at 1.0 Gbps, but I want to connect to the network at 1.0 Gbps. But what also is baffling is the fact that if we use the integrated NIC Card via the MotherBoard in which came with the computer as a whole we can connect to the network at 100.0 Mbps.

We are now aware the problem may not be the Gigabit Capable NIC Card but quite possibly the "Gigabit" Capable Router. We have QoS (Quality-Over-Service) Enabled on the Router, which should not affect the Connection Speed v... Read more

Jumanji discovered an interesting bit and I thought others should be aware.

This might be old news to some. I found one article to exemplify the issue, but there are sure to be more. While this article refers to 3TB drives, the same caution applies to 4TB and greater drives. Basically older docking stations do NOT have address translation for drives above 2 TB - they can only access 2 TB. Problems arrise when data exceeds that limit and data is over written at the base address corrupting the drive.

This is why the first 3TB drive shipped last summer as an external model--a switch from the usual pattern of internal units shipping first.

Although you shouldn't have any issues attaching a prepackaged 3TB external drive, you may have problems if you buy a 3TB internal drive and try to add it to a USB-connected enclosure yourself. Read the fine print: Many of the bare enclosures say they support 3TB, but not all of them do.

A:Docking Stations for X1 Carbon

You don't say which generation X1C you have, but AFAIK you can add a WWAN card.  Instructions are in the Hardware Maintenance Manual for your particular model.
 
The challenge will be antennas if they aren't already installed, and finding a card that passes the BIOS whitelist.
 
This isn't something I can address in detail, but if you'll list your MT-M - like 20FB002SUS as an example of a WWAN-upgradable unit - others will probably be able to help.  (Upgradable means that the antennas are already in place.)

I have been having all kinds of trouble accessing disks in docking stations through USB hubs and connected direct to my computer.

The two docking stations concerned are:

Coltech CE606CU3 USB 3.0 HDD Dual Bay Docking Station for 2.5" and 3.5" SATA hard drives
Inateck Dual Two Bays USB 3.0 Hard Drives External Docking Station

The two hubs I have used are:

EasyAcc® USB 3.0 7 Port hub bus-powered and self-powered 2-in-1 hub
Inateck® 5-Port USB 3.0 Hub (USB 3.0 4-Port Hub + One 5V 2A Charging Port)

I am using plain SATA internal disks in the docking stations, the latest of which is a WD Green 4TB Desktop Internal SATA Hard Drive.

I have tried every conceivable combination:

one disk in one slot of docking station
two disks in both slots
both of the above connected via both hubs and connected direct to the computer (always using USB 3 ports)
switching on docking station after every possible method of connection
switching on and then connecting docking station after making every possible connection

And the result is always the same. The longest period I have been able to access any disk in any docking station is less than an hour, and then it disappears from Computer and from Disk Management - usually while doing a long backup. (Backup is the reason I bought the WD disk.) But the problem relates to any disk I use, in both docking stations and via both USB hubs or connected direct to computer.

Hi everyone,
I just purchase one laptop for a user that has two offices in different locations.
The two locations are on the same domain but have a different ip scheme, example; location A 192.168.40.xx and location B 192.168.50.xx, our network admin has set the network to be static, my problem really is, how can i set up one docking station to use one ip scheme and the other docking station to us another ip scheme, both docking stations are identical. I've set up a test environment with both docks next to each other and both on the network, every time I dock it uses the first ip I had assigned to the first docking station, even worse, when I un-dock and use the nic on the laptop it will still use the same ip, can I create different local area connections for each nic????
laptop:
dell e6420
docking station:
e-port plus port replicator

any input will be greatly appreciated

A:two different ip schemes, two docking stations, ONE laptop

Hello,

Assign multiple static addresses on the docking station/NIC for both networks.

You will also need to add multiple default gateways.

A better way of doing this would be to enable DHCP on the networks. - This is upto your system admin though.

I have the XPS 13 9365 2-in-1 and I want a docking station without paying £££s.What non-Dell docking station are people using?many thanks

A:Which non-Dell docking stations for XPS 13 9365?

It is a little hard to judge price if you don't say which capabilities you want the dock to have.  If you needed just Ethernet, those aren't bad.
I have the TB 16, which seems to work well but is expensive.  I cannot attest to its capabilities with multiple monitors since I don't run my system that way.
I also have a StarTech.com dock (# DKT30CHPD) which has HDMI (4K) Ethernet and USB.  
I will suggest you evaluate your needs prior to buying a dock.  Getting one which has the capabilities is better than buying several for different capabilities.  If for no other reason that drivers for the different docks may be different.
I should mention, the TB 16 has its own power supply where the StarTech one does not.  Of course, this adds to the cost but does give you a backup supply for your system.

Hi,
I have a question regarding dual-slot HDD docking stations, as I was thinking about purchasing one. I will be using it for both data transfer and cloning. I also own a copy of Acronis True Image 2014 Premium. My question is this, if I want to clone or transfer data from one drive to the other using Acronis True Image would it be faster with two single docking stations each with their own dedicated USB (to the computer) opposed to one dual-slot station which has to share it‘s USB cable for both simultaneously reading from and writing to the drives? Or is this not how it works; does the data simply transfer from one drive to the other without ever leaving the docking station?
 

A:Question Regarding Dual-Docking HDD Stations

?? I think you're right ?? .. But there are "docking stations" with stand alone cloning that should be faster .. Here's one
Unless you're doing this all day .. is the extra speed really that much of an advantage ??
I think I'd trust Acronis 2014 for the Cloning/Imaging especially if making a SSD .. and would get a couple of Single enclosures or stations for the speed/versatility ..

Hi Everyone,

I have a Vantec "NextStar" USB3 dual hard drive docking bay.

I can format disks that I insert into the bay, and load files onto the drives.

However whenever I subsequently access the same drive using a different docking bay, a portable hard drive enclosure, or directly connect the given hard drive to the computers motherboard Windows (7) forces me to "re-format" the drive!

Similarly often, but not always, when I insert a drive (that is already formatted & contains files) into the bay Windows (7) asks me to format the drive - even though the drive is already formatted.

This is extremely frustrating - I am close to putting the Vantec under my car tyre and reversing over it.

If anybody else has had this issue can you tell me whether you found a solution?

A:Solved: USB3 docking bay not behaving!

If I run Command Update on a laptop connected to one of the USB3 docking stations, will it automatically find any firmware updates for the dock as well as the laptop, or do I need to manually find and install any firmware updates for the dock?
Thanks

A:USB3 DOcking Station firmware update

It would depend on which Dell USB 3.0 Dock, which laptop, which operating system. Did you read through the User's Guide? Or the Setup Guide which shipped with the Dock?

I have a setup with a home office and a work office in which I have a Dell SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Docking Station at each location.  Mysteriously about two to three weeks ago the Dell Gigabit Ethernet connection on BOTH docs just stopped working - it briefly connects, tries to identify the network and then shows no connection.
The laptop is an XPS 15 but to debug I also tried a Latitude E5470 - both laptops act the same way on both docks.  On the XPS 15 I updated all of the drivers from Dell and Intel.   TCP stack reset, adapters deleted and re-added, etc, etc.
When the Ethernet is connected directly to the latitude it works just fine at both locations.
I called Dell support and was told if the Ethernet works on the Latitude then I have to go back to the retailer where I bought the dock and ask them how to fix it because the dock and the laptop are out of support [I offered to pay but was told that the dock isn't covered regardless]... STUPIDEST TECH SUPPORT RESPONSE EVER (and I'm in tech support myself so I've heard it all) for multiple reasons as noted above - two docks and two laptops.
At roughly the same time the WiFi throughput on the XPS built-in adapter dropped to kbps speeds (well documented but no real solution - google "dell Wireless-N 7260 performance issues").
On the XPS I even upgraded from Win 8.1 to Win 10 to see if a "fresh" OS would flush out any bad drivers, etc - no help, same issue.
The only workarounds I fou... Read more

I'm asking this because me and a friend of mine both bought HP ProLiant Microservers at the same time. We both have the same setup which is PC and Server both connected to a Gigabit switch.

He can receive speeds of over 90MB/s when transferring from PC to Server using default windows file copying. I can get no higher than 35MB/second using Windows file copy or by using TeraCopy.

I have tried copying from different sources ie. Different hard drives in my PC (I have a Seagate 320GB 7200rpm) and from a laptop which has a gigabit port too but still no faster speeds.

We both have the same hard drives within our servers.

I thought it could have been a driver issue on the server however we checked side by side the driver and the advanced configuration of the NIC however still no joy!

I have attached HIS screenshots of the speeds he receives. We also did a netperf test. his throughput is 377.33 while mines is 170 - 177. Also tried changing speed & duplex settings to 1000mb full, auto, 100mb full etc etc. NO JOY.

According to netperf if the throughput is not what you expect for your type of connection then it's a NIC issue or driver issue or NIC settings issue. But i've tried now from 2 different sources yet still no joy and i've also tried different cables and also direct connection via crossover.

PULLING MY HAIR OUT OVER THIS!

A:Can't get gigabit speed :(

It could just be that your non server side hard drives are not fast enough. 90 megs a second is pretty fast for modern mechanical hard drives. Your laptop drive is probably pretty slow because they are designed for low power consumption rather than speed, and that 320GB drive is old - I would be surprised to find that it could sustain a read faster than 60 megs a sec.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with gigabit. My network only goes up to about 20% max when I do file transfers (video files mainly ~20gb). All cabling is cat6. Thanks!
