RE: XPS 15 9560 -- USB 3.0 does not recognize StarTech Ethernet Adapter

Update:  After reading a discussion on a USB / XPS 13, I learned you can plug the Ethernet adapter into a USB hub.  It works, but not at the speed of a USB 3.0 connection.  When connected through the (very old) USB Hub, I was getting only 8.5 mbps compared to 240 mbps on my wireless connection.

Also, to be more specific, the adapter is an "ASIX AX88179 USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter" branded as StarTech.
