I've bought an Apple Thunderbolt Adaptor; this fits into the Dell's Mini Display Port socket, BUT when other end
connected to my Router, my PC doesn't see a new Network
It'd be useful if I had a hard wired connection to my Router when there are wifi issues, but
wondered if there's anything else I should be doing, or is the DELL socket just for connecting to remote monitor etc?
Using Win10 64 bit O/S.

Re: Dell XPS Laptop with no network socket; would an Apple Thunderbolt_Network adaptor work
I concur. A display port is to output to a display; a Thunderbolt port is rather more than that, even if it uses the same connector. Using a Thunderbolt cable will not magically transform one into the other.
