    I've always used wireless, but just moved into an office that prohibits wireless. I plugged their wired Ethernet cable into my dock, but it will not connect to to internet. Seems Like I had this problem with a laptop before, and had to go in somewhere and change a setting or something. I need this to be working by in the morning. Can someone point me in the right direction?
    Thanks,
    Bill

    To find out if it's a dock problem, pick up a USB to Ethernet cable and try connecting directly from your Surface. I used this method on my first Surface, before dock were available. It's a handy item to have, in case you find yourself in a location that has a LAN and no WiFi.
