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

Well it would work at 3.0 speeds if you had a USB 3.0 hub, but if it works through the hub and not directly connected to the system, then maybe your system’s USB ports aren’t supplying enough power for the Ethernet adapter, even if they can power a wireless mouse receiver, in which case you’d probably need a replacement motherboard since they certainly SHOULD be able to handle that adapter.

Do you have other higher-power devices like a USB-powered external hard drive (not flash drive) to test this theory further?
