NIC won’t work when W510 is docked

IF you try to plug the RJ45 cable on the Lenovo W510 RJ45 port and your NIC status still says: “Network Cable unplugged”, make sure the laptop is not on the docking station; if it is, it will de-activate the internal wired NIC, once you remove the laptop from the docking station the port will resume working; Some say: “The docking station is working as designed” other say: ” It is a bug on the docking station design” you pick your choice.
