No Ethernet connection on my DisplayLink docking station

When the Ethernet cable is connected to the USB docking station, there is no link and no LEDs come on. This is usually due to being connected to a half duplex port.

The Ethernet on the DisplayLink docking stations support full duplex only. Half duplex connections are not supported.
Connecting to older Ethernet hubs, which only support half duplex, rather than Ethernet switches will cause this issue.

Connect the Ethernet port to a full duplex Ethernet port on an Ethernet switch.
