@george1421 Attached is a picture of the current setup with a:
TP-Link TL-0SG1008D switch (Not the new model they have out rn, also the dumbest switch I could find in the office… works about 90% of the time now)
A Surface Book Dock (Model 1661)
A Surface Book 4 (Model 1703 according to the Surface UEFI about page)
The white cable coming into the TP-Link switch is the uplink from a Cisco Meraki MS-22 switch
The blue cable just goes from the TP-Link to the Surface Book dock.
Then Dock to Surface Book through Microsofts proprietary connector
As for: @george1421 said in UEFI booting with Surface book 4:
But at the same time I’m confused why the wireless adapter is being displayed, unless the wireless and ethernet adapter are one and the same.
I feel the same about this… Not sure why only the wireless adapter is being displayed! The only LAN connection that I know of is coming from the Surface Dock. Also, I have not seen anything saying that the surface has a passthrough NIC built into it like a lot of newer Lenovos have. So for some reason
lspci -nn|grep net is not showing the NIC for the Surface Dock.
I think at this point we are going to purchase and test a few dumb switches along with this usb 3.0 gigabit ethernet adapter that “Supports Legacy PXE (eHCI and xHCI) & UEFI PXE” (we will see about that! :))
Anyways, Those new toys should be in some time next week… I will test things out and let you know what I come up with. Let me know if you have any other suggestions in the meantime.
Thanks for all the help :D
