    MS will need to add drivers for the common usb-to-ethernet dongles. At the moment I'm not aware of any that work. I've personally tried a "Plugable" brand dongle and I got a message to the effect that the USB device wouldn't work. As for a wired internet connection port, there is no rj-45 port on the dock.

    I've tried a few USB Ethernet adapters too. No drivers-no go.
    But I'm hoping for touchscreen support before Ethernet. I have plans for Continuum in the truck!

    So I'm not the only one!

    I just got my 950XL yesterday and I'm planning a car pc for my ride using continuum and a 7" touchscreen. I was told touch was already supported. Would be a real bummer if touch drivers weren't implemented in WM10. :(

    Nope, I'm all in with Continuum In The Car!

    As soon as touchscreen drivers are supported, I'm ordering a gutted (No PC....just the chassis and screen) unit from the guys at E3IO. (e3io.com)

    I'll spring for the multi-touch so gestures will be rich. To be honest, on 7" I will be thrilled just to get the UI of the phone. But regardless, I'm betting the future for this kind of stuff is awesome.

    WOW! thanks for that website! I was a member of mp3car.com for a long time and had a car pc in my ride about 10 years ago... good times! :)

    With continuum, the idea came to me a few weeks and I've been planning it ever since using my 950xl. Bummer about the touch drivers though. I mean, why wouldn't touchscreens be supported from the start as they are USB-HID devices just like a mouse. I have my 950xl, my free display dock is in the mail from MS, and I was about to order a 7" touchscreen with HDMI input for the display. Hopefully this gets rectified soon.

    I'm betting a LOT of features are coming to what we call Continuum today. Keep in mind that your new 950XL is the first device in the world to support it and it is in its infancy. But, I'm betting the really obvious features will come pretty quickly. ("quickly" being a relative term. I'm an old man who thinks things are changing FAST. My mantra is that they invent stuff every single night while I am asleep)

    Yea, that website really gets your head thinking outside of the box, doesn't it? But you probably already do that based on your story. You were ahead of the times! :)

    has anyone tried the one ethernet adapter with a chipset that worked back then with the Surface RT?

    What's the update on this after Anniversary?
    What's the likelihood of a regular USB adapter working with the Dock vs a Type-C adapter working plugged straight into the phone/on the Dock?

    I cannot find the link, but it was reported to be working on early AU Insider builds. I don't have one handy, so cannot test, but I think at least a few brands should work.
