Adapter Switching with a Dell Docking Station D3100 / Latitude E7450?

Q: Adapter Switching with a Dell Docking Station D3100 / Latitude E7450?

HI,
We bought Dell docking stations D3100 to go with our Dell Latitude E7450.
I’m trying to configure the laptop for when the user disconnect it from the docking station, it automatically connect back to the network Wi-Fi.
Adapter Switching work great if I use the Ethernet adapter on the laptop itself. Once I disconnect the Network cable, it looks for the Wi-Fi and connects to it with no issue.
If I connect the network cable to the docking station, once I remove the connection from the docking to the laptop(usb3), I lose the wired network and it’s not even looking for the Wi-Fi.
I did configure the Dell gigabyte adapter on the docking station to be the first priority over the Wi-Fi just like I did for the laptop network adapter.
I updated the bios, firmware and drivers.
I also looked at the bios power management: Wireless Radio Control settings
Both local area network connections are above the Wireless one (priority)
Both Local area network adapter metric are set to 10 (only 1 is in use, both are set for testing purpose) while the wireless adapter metric is set to 9999.
As anyone had this issue or was able to get this working? Am I missing something ?
thanks

I just received my Latitude 7370 along with a D3100 docking station.
According this article: I should be able to get 2560x1440 on HDMI, I'm stuck at 2560x1080
Running 2 external monitors ( LG-34UC87C-B)
Display port @ 3440x1440 (this works fine for me)
HDMI 1 @ 2560x1440 ( I cannot reach this, I can only get 2560x1080..?)
HDM 2 is not used
Running the HDMI @ 2560x1080 just looks horrible, how can I achive the 2560x1440 that this device states it can handle?
If the D3100 cannot handle what I require does Dell make a Docking station for the 7370 that will handle idealy 3440x1440 x2? either HDMI or DisplayPort.
Thanks

I purchased a Dell D3100 for my non-Dell laptop in 2016. Initially, I was able to connect two 24" LG tv/monitors to my laptop via HDMI. I'm not sure if there's an issue with a Windows 10 update (I have the latest DisplayLink drivers installed), but my laptop will now recognise the external hard drives attached to the dock via USB, but will not recognise the monitors attached or the dock itself.
Is there something I'm missing?
Any help would be immensely appreciated!

I have the Inspiron 5748 and the D3100 docking station.
Windows 10 creator update installed, all latest updates drivers etc.
DisplayLink Manager v8.0.762.0

I have an external HDMI monitor, the problem is simple.
When the monitor is plugged in the docking station anything using that HDMI screen DOES NOT use the NVIDIA GPU, it uses the on-board Intel chip.
When connecting the monitor directly to the laptop all applications on the external monitor use the NVIDIA GPU (I have this as default in the NVIDIA control panel)

Please advise on how I can get the D3100 to work with the NVIDIA GPU.

Many thanks.

I have a Latitude E7470, connected to my D3100 dock via USB3. I have a Dell E2317H Monitor connected to the D3100 via DP. Works fine having it setup as my main display and extending to my laptop. The problem is the Laptop and or the D3100 are not recognizing the 2 other E2317H Monitors that are connected to the 2 HDMI ports with HDMI to DP cables. The OS kind of detects the monitors but will not push video to them. I have tried every which way I can think of with the OS and the Display Link software and have no joy.

I updated my working station coming from another laptop and had 2 monitors connected (in hdmi and usb->vga adapter). Autodesk 3d applications Revit, 3dsmax all worked fine in all monitors, the usb dongle was using laptop's CPU/GPU to show image.
With new laptop I got D3100 docking station (as usb->vga adapter has some flickering on 5510) to connect my monitors. But mentioned applications do not work at all on that, anything considering 3d runs awfully slow. Using the usb->vga dongle it works well beside flickering.
Is it how it supposed to be with D3100? Can it be forced to use laptop's GPU for showing image (like the cheap usb->vga/hdmi adapters)? This docking station doesn't make any sense now.

So it seems that this new dell docking station doesn't seem to work well with the new XPS 13 (2015 model) that came with Windows 8.1 OS.  I had ordered 10 for our users for the hdmi output and potential 4k for monitors but it seems after hours with Dell tech support it seems that they can't get no close to resolving the problem.
The issue is that after installing the docking station software.   All but two devices are left under Device Manager as devices with no drivers (Dell Gigabit Ethernet, Dell USB Audio).  I thought I could look live without those two devices but after plugging in a Dell 4K monitor i get no out from my XPS 13 laptop.  
I tried downloading the D3100 drivers from the Dell website but it's the same install that is available from the cd-rom install and re-install doesn't update the drivers.
If someone has found any resolution to this it would be quite helpful.

I had this problem with a Latitude 7350 2 in 1 and the D3100 dock.  I'm running Windows 10.  This problem was driving me crazy

I went into C:\Program Files\DisplayLink Core Software.  Go into the Audio Driver Folder and the CdcNcmDriver folders and find the files with a .inf extension.   Right click on them and choose Install.
That should load the drivers you need for both items.  That's what finally worked for me.
If you can't see the extensions, you need to go into Control Panel - File Explorer options - View tab and uncheck the box next to Hide Extensions of known file types.

I have a nearly new Dell Inspiron  15 7000-series laptop. I also have a D3100 USB3 docking station. The dock has a monitor, speakers, mouse, keyboard, and disk drive attached. All was working fine for weeks. Just a few days ago, the speakers stopped working. Sound is now coming out of the laptop speakers even when the laptop is docked. In the Device Manager, when it is docked, there is a USB Audio device that has an exclamation mark on it. (E.g. isn't working.) I've tried updated the audio driver through the Dell support site. No improvement. I then found the latest driver on dell.com for the D3100 dock. I tried installing it, but it was refused, saying that the existing driver was up to date.
The speakers work fine when plugged directly into the laptop audio jack. E.g. there is no problem with the speaker hardware.
Any ideas how I can get the dock audio working again

This just started today, I have an E7450 that disables the embedded keyboard and mouse when in the docking station.  
The only change is that the old docking station stopped working and i put a different one on the desk and plugged it all in.  Currently the station only has KB, Mouse, power and DVI cables in it.  I'd rather just use the keyboard on the laptop though.
I take it out of the docking station, touchpad and KB work fine, i put it on, touchpad and KB are disabled.
I opened the touchpad settings and they all appear to be correct (touchpad is set to on (|) but does not respond when touched. )
Is there somewhere in windows that might have a setting to disable KB and TP when in docking station?  I did both an internet search and a search of the laptop forums here and found nothing.

Hi, guys,I have next setup: Dell Inspiron 7567 laptop, Dell D3100 docking station and LG Flatron e2360 monitor. And I have a problem with it.The problem is related to video cards installed on the laptop. The laptop is equipped with Intel HD Graphics 630 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. And the problem is that laptop/docking station/whatever doesn't use NVIDIA card to display the picture on the second monitor. So, if I run game or movie on second monitor it's displayed using only Intel card. Problem doesn't appear if I connect everything directly into the laptop(I guess, it's a docking station problem).

Hi 
I got dell laitude 7270 model and recently purchased the D3100 (DisplayLink) docking station. I believe it used the USB 3.0 to connect the laptop to the dock 
I got two external Dell screens (normal wide screen with max 1920x1286 resolution not 4K screen)

We experience laggy, delay when using mouse and keyboard. It does not matter if cord/cordless or plug in directly to laptop or to docking station

Using laptop by itself dont have that problem

It prove to me the limitation of USB 3.0 bandwidth create this issue

Not too sure if Dell is aware of it and make any improvement. I have chat with ProSupport but so far only recommendation is to upgrade laptop to latest firmware

I have recently purchased a 5510 and a D3100 docking station. Used primarily for solidworks and rhino. My issue is that besides 4k and older applications being terrible bedmates is that the docking station stops the quadro so everything is running software open gl. I understand the new thunderbolt dock DB16 has some additional graphics capabilities but they are by no means a quadro solution, nor it is recognized by solidworks. 
This is hugely problematic. Is there a method to remedy this? Attempting to access the quadro settings while plugged into the docking station results in windows stating that the hardware is not available.

As the subject line implies. I have a xps13 running windows 10 and I just purchased a d3100 docking station.
I assumed I would be able to run 2 monitors and the built-in digital display (3 total screens) all autonomously. 
I downloaded the drivers and then plugged into the docking station and to my dismay, the monitors are not working as I expected. 
I currently have just 1 27' dell monitor connected through the display port. (I need a dvi cable before I can connect the second monitor.)
The Intel HD graphics control panel doesn't recognize that I have multiple monitors. It only recognizes the built-in display. The system display settings do allow my to go into extended desktop mode but it's very clumsy, it won't let me decide which monitor is primary, etc...

Hi Guys,
I just bought a Latitude e7450 and I am trying to use it with my PRO3X e-port docking.
I have found some issues but the most annoying one so far is the imposibility of using the Power button on the dock to start the laptop. The Power button is blinking (blue) but I cannot use it to power up or power down the laptop.
Am I missing any setting on my laptop? Is there a problem with my laptop? The docking worked fine for the past 4 years with my Latitude 6320 so I suspect there is nothing wrong with the docking.
I have installed the latest BIOS update today.

Hi!
I have a Latitude E7740 that runs Ubuntu Xenial (16.04). I dock it to a "Dell EURO2 Advanced E-port II" docking station. 
If I boot it in the docking station, everything works fine, and I find all my two DVI-connected monitors. 
However, if I undock, then put it into the dock again while running, it fails to enable the screens. I'm using a script called autorandr for switching between display modes - it uses xrandr. It tries to run:
xrandr --output DP1-1 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 0x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal --output DP1-2 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 1920x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal
But the X server responds with:

Running this exact command after booting in the dock is doing the right thing, but after undocking then docking, it doesn't work.

Hello everyone. I have a Dell E7450 with a faulty charging circuit. An IC (PD5) close to the DC jack burnt due over voltage therefore the computer is showing `plug in not charging`. My question here is, are there any chances that the computer will charge through dock station? Thanks.
 

A:Charging DELL E7450 through dock station

If the damage is only associated with something only used for the DC jack on the laptop then yes, but if there's damage to any shared or more important circuits then it may not work either. Normally you would absolutely be able to charge it through the docking station. If I personally had to guess I'd say there's a pretty good change it may work with a dock.

I suggest swapping the two docking stations. If the same docking station has the same performance, then the one which causes slow performance is defective in some way. If the laptop is still slow at work and fast at home, then the problem is caused by there being something different about the environment.

Hello there,
I dont really belive that anyone is abble to help me fix this problem but ill give it a shot coz this is reallt weaird and annoying.
So i am using an docking station to my dell, it has 5 USB ports (3 on the left and 2 on the back).
Now i am using a logitech wireless mouse. Whenever i plug the usb mouse receiver to any of the left ports, it works just fine. If I use any of the 2 on the back, it lags as hell and it seem to get stuck in every procces action, like moving files over explorer etc.
But thats not the most anyoing thing im expiriencing...
I wanted to make my life esier, so i bought a mini-pcie usb adapter, this one: 

And i plugged my mouse receiver to it- it works great! BUT WAIT, only if laptop is not connected to the docking station! If it is, im getting the exact same problem as i would connect the mouse receiver to the back of the docking station...
I tried reinstalling the root usb hubs but it havent changed anything. This is weird as hell.
I would really aprichiate if someone could help me with this problem. rly.

A:Latitude E6520 Docking station USB problem

I fixed the problem, im not sure if this was the cause, but lemme show what i did:
So at the start, please look at this picture:

The way those 2 slots are populated is not natural- what i mean is that at the beggining i only had the wan card and one slot was free. But, before installing the usb dongle with its card i had to move the wan card from wan slot to sataflash slot and insert the usb dongle into wan slot. Why? See the place i circles (squared?) with red color. This metal border was to close and the dongle was to long so it wouldnt fit.
This way it was buggish and when i turned the switch my mouse wasnt working instead of wireless...
What i did to fix this problem:
I ripped off some of the metal borded using sharp pliers and replaced the cards to the proper slots (wan card in wan slot, usbdongle in sataflash slot).
Everything seems to be working so far.

Try with the battery disconnected.  If it'll power up that way, the battery is bad.  If it won't, there's not much more you can do short of replace the mainboard, which must be faulty.

I'm a happy owner of Dell Latitude e7450, i7, 256 gb, with discrete Nvidia card (Moscow, Russia).
Everything's great, I absolutely love the machine, but I did some hardware replacements after purchasing the laptop (3Y NBD warranty), including the display, because there were two spots with very noticeable BL bleeding effect:

However, the replacement display turned out to be much worse in terms that BL bleeding affects almost half of the screen, which is very noticeable when watching films or playing games:

I requested a second replacement, however, this time it was denied:
"Analysis of Field captures as well as service stock captures confirmed the light leakage is within Dell LCD design specifications, there is no defect with the LCD panel or assembly. Furthermore a certain light leakage is a normal phenomenon on FHD panels and due production and mechanical interference with the LCD bezel."
I asked tech support member why then they replaced it the first time as the display was much better, and he stated it was some kind of 'exception' (at that time they also replaced motherboard and cooling system as well because of the high-pitched noise problem) which is strange - either you have tech standards or you don't.

Our drivers are fully up to date.
We are using Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit.
We have tried several adapter combos and are in need of guidance.
On my device I have a VGA connected to my main display, an HDMI>VGA adapter connected to HDMI port of dock and can run 2 monitors. That said as soon as I connect a mini display port to display port cable for my third monitor it will ONLY display in 680x450 resolution. The other 2 stay at 1680x1050. The third monitor does this 680x450 with just a VGA connected to main display, Display port to mini display port on the third monitor with the second monitor on HDMI>VGA adapter removed.
Can anyone please advise which cables we would need for a three monitor setup.
We are losing a lot of productivity with the lessened visual real-estate.

When the laptop is plugged into the docking station headphones won't work, regardless of whether I plug them into the laptop or the docking station.  This means that every time I want to make a Skype call, for example, I have to disconnect from the docking station and plug the headphones into the laptop.  Any one have any suggestions?

A:Latitude E5550 - headphones won't work when laptop is plugged into docking station

Is the headset being detected at all by the notebook when detected? Right click on the speaker icon on the task bar and choose playback devices, are the headphones listed? If they are listed click on it and then click the configure button to bring up speaker setup. Click the test button and do you get the test chimes via the headset?
If you did hear the test chimes then the headset is working fine.   Clicking cancel should return you back to sound properties. Make sure that headphone is still selected and then click the “Set Default” button. This should but the green “default” checkmark icon on the headphones now. Test to see if the headset is working correctly now.
If you continue to have problems please reply back with the model of docking station and headphones that are being used. Please also include if the headphones have an analog connection (headphone jack) or are USB. Please also include the version of Windows on the system.
 
Thanks
TB

Hey all,

I have a user with a Dell Latitude E7450 that has recently In-Place Upgraded to Windows 10 (from Windows 7) and ever since the upgrade, her Wifi blue screens when running a speedtest from speedtest.net. (Or presumably after any extensive Wifi use) I have tried updating the drivers from Windows Update as well as from Dells website and the laptop is certified as being Windows 10 certified.

Thanks!
