Flex 5-1570 LAN connection?

2018-06-25, 16:38 PM

I have a Flex 15. I bought a USB-C Hub with Ethernet connection. I naively thought that this would allow me to establish a wired connection from my router to my PC. But it appears that the machine doesn't automatically connect to my LAN through the adapter I purchased.

Is there any way to get a wired connection to the LAN with this machine so I can get better-than-wifi (54.0Mbps) connection speed?

I see that there is an option to "establish a Broadband Connection." Is this relevant? I can't figure out how to make it work. 

Moderator note: subject edited to reflect correct model.  Was:  Flex 15.

Hi,

 

I don't have any model Flex, but the way I read the specs the Flex 15 already has an RJ45 Ethernet port and doesn't suppot USB-C.

 

Perhaps this is a different model?  A Flex 5 15 inch, maybe?

 

I'd expect a USB-whatever to Ethernet adapter to work but there's always a chance for individual compatibility issues.

 

How about a link to the adapter you purchased, and some clarity on the laptop model?  (And my apologies if I've mis-read your post...)

Thanks for your reply. I have Model 80XB000BUS.
It has 2 USB 3.0 ports and Type C port but no ethernet port.

Here is the hub that I purchased:

Attached is a screenshot of my network properties (partial - does not show bluetooth).

Thanks!
