Windows 8

Connect dock, verify that you can reach the Internet, and Windows will automatically download and install the correct drivers for all functions of the dock. Windows 8 has a built-in driver for the dock’s Ethernet chip, so relying on the dock’s own Ethernet connection to install the rest of the drivers won’t be a problem.

Note:
* ARM-based Windows RT does not support 3rd party driver installs, and cannot work with docks like this.
* Windows 8 “Metro” video applications with protected content will not play in the presence of DisplayLink drivers.

Windows 7

Is like Windows 8, except without a built-in Ethernet driver, so that also needs to be downloaded and installed from Windows Update.

Leaving your network cable connected directly to the PC (or using wireless), verify working Internet connection, plug in the power and USB connections to the UD-160-A, and Windows Update will automatically download and install the correct drivers for the Ethernet, graphics and other functions of the dock. After all drivers for the dock have been installed, wired Ethernet can then be switched to the dock.

Windows XP and Vista

Drivers must be manually downloaded and installed. The UD-160-A is a USB docking station built from the following components, each with their own independently updatable drivers.

Mac OS X

The UD-160-A is a USB docking station built from the following components, each with their own independently updatable drivers. Note that Mac drivers for the display component of the dock are beta level quality.

Linux

Plugable Universal Docking StationFor Linux, support for all components of the docking station are in Linux kernels 2.6.31+, however configuring USB graphics for Linux is for very advanced users only (involves manual editing of xorg.conf, etc.)
