T480s - unable to use "Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station"

Hello, does anybody know if ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Dock is compatible with T480s?

 

I have installed all the drivers 

 

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/ie/en/products/accessory/docks/thinkpad-thunderbolt-3-dock/40ac/40ac013...

 

I have searched this forums and followed some advice re BIOS settings for TB3 (didn't make any difference).

 

Everytime I connect this dock the mesage comes up "Display connection may be limited".

All it does it charges the laptop, but no USB devices work (mouse, keyboard), also Monitor connected through display port does not work. 

I replugged and restarted everything multiple times.

 

I also updated all possible drivers for T80s (Win10 x64).

 

Any ideas how to get this working, or are those products not compatible?

 

Many thanks for assistance

Okkkkk I got it solved... very embarassing.

 

On the laptop I plugged originially USB-C cable to the same port as charger.

Next to it is another port that looks like something slightly else, but there is actually usb-c in it too.

 

Connected and all is working Smiley Happy Take this tip if you struggle like me, hah Smiley Happy

 

Thank you
