X230t 3435-22U and FRU 04W6468 Ultrabase Series 3 ethernet disabled when dock DisplayPort is used

2016-11-29, 4:06 AM

 

 

I've tolerated this issue for way too long, but now that I use the X230t as my only work computer, the value of the docking station has become apparent.  But it turns out it's not all rainbows and unicorns. 

 

If I use the dock's DisplayPort, the dock ethernet is disabled. If I unplug the dock's DisplayPort and use the laptop's DisplayPort, the dock ethernet works and the laptop ethernet is disabled.  It doesn't make sense that I can't leave all the peripherals connected to the dock so I can undock freely.

 

Is there a known fix for the dock's DisplayPort disabling the dock ethernet?

I will research your issue tomorrow.  Have you read the user guide to see if both items can coexist?
