No Ethernet using USB Dock 3.0 with X1Carbon

This USB 3.0 Dock is simply not a Production prime-time solution for a serious User. Maybe someday, but it's overpriced bling junk right now. I've completely given up with the multi-monitor option as the performance, when working, is like an RDP sess

This USB 3.0 Dock is simply not a Production prime-time solution for a serious User. Maybe someday, but it's overpriced bling junk right now. I've completely given up with the multi-monitor option as the performance, when working, is like an RDP session over a poor WAN connection at best. I've just thrown up my hands and will use an alternative hardware multi-monitor solution from Matrox as my fiddling time limit has been exceeded..
I would still like to use the USB 3.0 Dock as the most expensive USB Hub ever sold. Unfortunately, the USB Dock Ethernet network connection is not recognized. (The USB 2.0 Network on the laptop itself works okay) The USB 3.0 Dock ethernet worked one time for about 10 seconds, but then my monitors went completely berserk, disconnecting and connecting over and over. Then no Ethernet never to show up again. A lesser issue is the audio jack doesn't work either, but who cares about that when there's an audio jack right there on the X1 Carbon 12" away.
Can anyone who has one of these frustrating devices suggest what I should do to get the network connectivity working? I've done all the obvious, usual stuff. (un-install, re-install, turn-off, turn-on, throw on floor, etc.)
Thanks!

A recent X1 Carbon BIOS Update that showed up in Lenovo - Update and Drivers (32-bit) really, really improved the multi-monitor performance in my case. It's still not as good as the traditional bottom mount H/W Dock, but attached screens don't spontaneously disconnect any longer and it's more than useable. Hopefully I'll get a nice surprise with the USB 3.0 ethernet at some point in the future.
I didn't want to leave a crappy product rant out there without stating Lenovo has obviously made some sort of adjustment / improvement to their product.
