#StackBounty: #yubikey Yubikey 5c not recognized via docking station

Bounty: 50

I have a new YubiKey 5C NFC which when plugged directly in my laptop works fine. However, when I plug it into my docking station it doesn’t work at all.

OS: Linux Mint 20.1
Kernel: 5.4.0-77-generic
Docking station: Caldigit ts3

Looking at the dmesg logs I get the following when pluging the Yubikey into the laptop directly:

[  +7.595200] usb 1-1: new full-speed USB device number 14 using xhci_hcd

When I plug it into the docking station there’s nothing logged at all (I’ve tried all usb-c ports on the dock).

Does anyone know why the Yubikey isn’t recognized by the dock?
