Docking Stations and Display Driver

In most classrooms around campus, MLC utilizes the Plugable UD-3900 Dual Display Universal Docking Station. Please follow the instructions below in order to utilize the docking stations.

Install the Driver

If you are coming on campus to teach or present, you will need to install the appropriate driver package for your operating system:

Install the appropriate driver, restart the machine, then connect the docking station via USB and set your display settings as needed. Please read all pertinent information for your platform on that site.

Windows 10 Users

If you are using a device with a modern release of Windows 10, the drivers will often install automatically after a short while as long as you are connected to the wireless network on campus. If you run into issues, you can use the above link to install the drivers manually, but it is recommended that you let Windows 10 attempt the install automatically first.

macOS High Sierra (or lower) Users

It is not recommended that you use the classroom docking stations with macOS versions under 10.14 Mojave. If you have specific needs, please contact IT Services.
