Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Also try a different dock. If that works, then the dock could be bad.

Did you check the hardware the laptop has to connect to the dock. Underneath their is a small shutter like door that opens when you dock it. Is that connector clean? Same goes for the dock's hardware.

SOURCE: no ethernet with docking station
It could be the connector on the bottom of your laptop that's creating the problem. Does any other ports work on the docking station when docked?

Try removing all the USB devices in Windows Device Manager with the laptop docked. To do this: Right-click My Computer, left click Manage. On the right side of the window, click Device Manager. On the right side, click the + sign next to USB Devices. Highlight each device under this heading and hit Delete on your keybaord to remove all the devices in order. Then right-click Computer at the top of the list and click Scan for Hardware Changes.
Hopefully Windows will re-detect your USB devices and get them back operational.
Hope this helps!

You will have to take the docking station apart until you can see the locking mechanism. Once you can see the mechanism, you should be able to get a screwdriver ron it and release it. Make sure that it releases, don't force it, and most of all, be patient.
