Frequently Asked Questions

Installation

Starting in High Sierra 10.13, macOS enforces stricter security policies than previous revisions. As a result of these changes, software packages, like those used in this installation, will need to be allowed within the macOS Security and Privacy settings, immediately after the software has been installed, in order for the device to operate.

To allow the software, follow these steps after you've completed installation on your Mac:

  1. Open System Preferences.
  2. Open Security & Privacy.
  3. Click the Allow button near the bottom of the General tab.

Note: The option to allow the software will be available within the Security & Privacy settings for 30 minutes. If the software is not allowed within that time frame, the software must be reinstalled in order for macOS to grant the opportunity to allow it again.

Prior to installing this device, ensure that your operating system is up to date (for example, you have installed the most recent service pack).

To install the driver:

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a laptop docking station, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Video cables

  • Video source

  • Video destination

  • Laptop docking station

  • USB peripherals

  • Ethernet connection

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the video cables, video source, video destination, laptop docking station, USB peripherals, and Ethernet connection in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different video cable, video source, video destination, laptop docking station, USB peripherals, and Ethernet connection setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the video cables, video source, video destination, and laptop docking station it is recommended that you do the following:

  1. Press the Windows key + R, type devmgmt.msc, and press Enter to open Device Manager.

  2. If you do not see the USB video adapter in Device Manager, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/support/faqs/technical-support?topic=expansion-cards#usb-cannot-detect-windows.

  3. If the device is listed with an error, reinstall the drivers following the instructions on the website.

  4. Check to see if your video card drivers are current. You can check what video card you have in Device Manager under Display adapters. It is recommended that you go directly to the video card manufacturer's website to check for the latest drivers.

  5. Check to see if the monitor is being detected by Windows.

For more information about testing the USB peripherals and the laptop docking station, visit www.startech.com/faq/usb_hubs_general_troubleshooting.

When you test Ethernet and the laptop docking station, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/network_adapters_general_troubleshooting.

When you test sound and the laptop docking station, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/sound_cards_general_troubleshooting.

Your laptop might not support Power Delivery or might have specific charging requirements. For example, if your laptop requires exactly 60W of power and an adapter consumes some of the 60W, your laptop might not recognize that it is getting enough power.

For more information about Power Delivery, refer to the manufacturer of your hardware.

Before You Buy

USB-C is a type of USB connector that is capable of supporting the following:

  • Data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps, if you use USB 3.1.
  • Bi-directional power delivery up to 100W, if both the USB host connection and the device support it.
  • Alternate modes, which deliver different types of data at different speeds. For example, DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode).

If using Thunderbolt 3 over USB-C, the connection is capable of additional features. For example, Thunderbolt 3 is capable of 40Gbps of total bandwidth. For more information, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/thunderbolt-3-port-capabilities.

Not all USB-C ports or devices are capable of supporting all of the features listed above, or all of the features at the maximum capabilities. If you require a specific USB-C feature, your USB host connection, cables, and device must all support the feature that you require. For more information about whether your components support specific USB-C features, refer to the information provided by the manufacturers. 

This USB-C device requires that all of the following components support alternate modes:

  • The USB-C host connection (for example, a computer and its port)
  • The USB-C cable
  • The USB-C device (for example, a hard drive docking station)

If your host device includes a Thunderbolt™ 3 connection, this USB-C device will work with your host device.

For more information about the modes that your setup components support, refer to the information provided by the manufacturers.

To use all of the features of this USB-C device, it is required that all of the following components support USB Power Delivery 2.0 and DisplayPort Alternate Mode:

  • The USB-C host connection.
  • The USB-C cable.
  • The USB-C device (for example, a hard drive docking station).

Good adapter to have when all you have is USB-C

By: macphoto1970_01 - 07/08/2018
This is a very convenient adapter to have in ones collection. Having a system with just USB-C is very limited and this adapter makes life a lot easier. This adapter takes one usb-c port and takes it too 2 usb 3.0 ports, Gigabit ethernet and Hdmi. There is a power usb-c hookup as well. Overall everything worked without issue. I did find this adapter to not feel as solid as some others i have tried but only using for a long time will determine its longevity. for a small adapter with the most basic ports this could be one of the most reasonable. overall I found this to be a very good product. i revived this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

So many things in a small package

By: NickD_CA52 - 07/18/2018
I have tested this dock with multiple devices including Lenovo laptops and even Samsung S8 phone. There are so many ports and everything works well and quickly. This dock comes in a box about the size of 3 DVD cases. If feels very light and is made of metallic coloured plastic. Everything connects to the dock nice and firmly so the cables don't wiggle lose. The dock is about the size of a deck of cards with round sides and a 10 inch cord. The dock can pass through power to charge the device that is connected using the USB-C port. When I connected this dock everything connected started working automatically within seconds. The network worked fast and I never noticed a glitch from the HDMI port. This dock is actually labeled as an "adaptor" but it more like 5 adaptors in one and enough ports for everything that I would normally use in a docking station. This adaptor/dock worked really fast and reliably with everything I connected to it. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Portable Docking Station

By: Andrew11 - 07/30/2018
I really like this little adapter. It’s small so I can bring it anywhere, and it quickly becomes a docking station for me when traveling. It’s got everything I need; gigabit Ethernet, 4K HDMI (which looks great on Hotel TVs!) 2 USB ports and then the best part, only one cable to plug into my laptop since I can also connect my power adapter right to it! The cable is the perfect length to both use and travel with, and the adapter itself is solid and the ports well made. I definitely won’t travel without it!

Connectivity issues on 2017 15" MacBook Pro

By: mrearly - 08/01/2018
I've had this adapter for 6 months, and it has consistent problems with the HDMI not communicating with monitor, requiring repeated insertion to get both the HDMI and ethernet to work. Otherwise, happy with the performance of the device (except that it doesn't passthrough enough power to charge 15" MBP).

Works great with my Windows 10 laptop and MBP

By: morty - 08/08/2018
I used this product on my Dell XPS 13 and my MBP and it works well with both. It's small, compact, and fits nicely in my my slim messenger bag. It has the two most important ports for presentations which is Ethernet and HDMI which are two ports that don't seem to be included on the newest ultrabooks these days in favour of USB-C ports. Dongles are our life now and this one does the job well. No drivers or software needed, just plug and play. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great addition to the laptop bag!

By: Nick_136 - 09/14/2018
So much provided in one little device! I mean really, it's more of a "docking station" than simply an "adapter". Yet it fits in one's pocket! The adapter can be used with or without the laptop's power passing through. With power connected, everything works, AND the laptop charges. If you are going to go from powered to unpowered or vice versa, disconnect the whole device, add/remove power, then reconnect the device. This prevents the video passthrough from hanging up. Would still prefer to a removable USB-C cable on this, so I can use a longer cable or replace it (I broke the USB-C connector on a previous model (the black one), so the whole device went out with the bathwater, so to speak. But.... this device does what it is supposed to do, so I'm not complaining about the design too much! I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.
