Corporate install Ethernet not detected

We purchased the K33926 for testing. This device has displaylink and smsc lan9500 onboard.

When i install the corporate installer + SMSC driver the ethernet adapter is not recognized. We want to purchase multiple docks but we are not going to install all docks manually.

I already asked Kensington but they have no solution. The software they supply cannot install silently:mad:

Anyone encountered the same problem?

We have updated our corporate install user guide to include the information on how to distribute the Ethernet install. This is available here:


Section 5 covers how to deploy the Ethernet driver.

Thanks for the information but installing the drivers is not the problem, they are installed.

The problem is that the LAN9500 is not detected, when i use the latest software from the Kensington site (Setup_R5.2M4.exe, DisplayLink Corp. 5, 2, 23316, 0) the landriver is also installed and the LAN9500 is detected which is not the case with the corporate installer. If the hardware is not detected it will not use the driver stored in the driver database.

Is there a way to install the software mentioned above silently?

When i install the corporate software en replace the displaylink core drivers with version 5.2.23219.0 the ethernetadapter is detected.

The problem is that after i replace the drivers the license agreement pops up. You will need administrative privileges to finish the installation:mad:

Our problem is solved with the new release of the new corporate installers

Thanks Wim and the Displaylink team! :)

There is now a "Kensington Office Dock" corporate install package available to use with this product. This should be used with the Kensington sd400v dock so Ethernet will correctly work.
