As in the title, I've added an M2 MBA to the office collection. My M1 MAX works perfectly with the startech dock, plug in, the screens get detected and off you go.

With the M2, the laptop charges, finds the speakers and webcam but says "no displaylink enabled displays connected" - I've got the latest drivers but they are from July, so maybe new ones need issuing? Has anyone had the same issue?

Got my MBA today. Installed DisplayLink 1.7.1 from the website and it started working without issue. I have a StarTech USB32DP4K that I've plugged into my Razer TB4-dock which is based on the Intel reference design. The display is 2560x1440@60Hz.

Ran on both 12.4 and 12.5.

No idea why it doesn't work for you but at least giving you a data point that it *should* work, somehow :)

Interesting. My dock is the DK30C2DPPDUE.

MBA is 12.5, MBP is 12.4. When the Air is plugged in, from the “About this Mac -> system report” I can see the network also isn’t recognised. Maybe I should try a different USB-C cable? 🤷🏻‍♂️

Mine works fine...M2 MBA using Displaylink to drive 2 Dell monitors via a Pluggable USB hub.

Thanks for confirming too.
I’ll first try a different USB-C cable. I’ve tried two drivers, screen sharing is set, accessibility also has display link so I’m at a loss as to what the issue could be 🤷🏻‍♂️

Thanks for the replies, it seems swapping the cable out has fixed the issue. Really strange given the MBP was fine with the other one.
Its my better halfs birthday next week so Im happy the air is setup and she can use the extra screens, webcam, speakers, keyboard, mouse etc with just one cable for her studies. Coming from a 2012 MBA I hope she'll be happy :)
