I have a Surface Pro fifth generation device connected to a surface dock 2.0. I recently rewired my home office so that I have ethernet close to my desk.
However, simply attaching my surface to the dock results in loss of connectivity (WAN and LAN). ipconfig release renew doesn’t fix things. Unplugging the ethernet cable and plugging back in sometimes works in restoring. Rebooting my surface always seems to fix things.
Manually attaching an ethernet adapter to my usb port works fine.
Doesn’t seem to be anything to do with my router.
Any thoughts? Anyone else have problems like this or am I blessed?
