All Cable Matters docking stations or adapters with an Ethernet port include a free Windows application that enables our customers to better manage their network security. When your computer is connected to the Internet through the ethernet port on the Cable Matters docking station, your network only sees the MAC address of the docking station. However, the Cable Matters EZ-Dock utility software is designed for a Windows computer to clone (passthrough) its internal MAC address to a Cable Matters adapter/dock with Ethernet that connects to the computer.
Refer to the steps below about the setup process.
Download and install the EZ-Dock utility software
EZ-Dock only works when a Cable Matters adapter/dock is connected and the internet is accessed through the Cable Matters adapter/dock. Unplugging the Ethernet cable or the Cable Matters adapter/dock will stop the EZ-Dock program (the EZ-Dock icon is grey when turned off). The initial settings of the computer’s network card will be recovered.
After 10 seconds, if starting EZ-Dock still sends you the above error message, reboot the computer and restart the utility software.
