ZBook Dock w/ TB3 Ethernet issue

HP ZBook 15 G3 Mobile Wkstn
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Employer recently bought a large number of HP ZBook 15 G3 Mobile Workstations with the 150W Thunderbolt 3 dock.  Seems like everything is working except for the Ethernet port on the dock.  I've reloaded the OS with a standard Windows 10 Pro 64-bit build and updated all drivers and firmware.  The NIC is listed in Device Manager as a hidden device named Broadcom Simple Communications Device.  It doesn't show up as a network adapter of any sort and doesn't seem to be functional other than this single hidden entry in device manager.


Is this correct or do I need to load some other type of driver?  Has anybody had luck getting the Ethernet port on this dock to work under Windows 10 64-bit?
