I have an Aspire 5 A515-51-563W Laptop and would like to create a dual monitor setup to a new LG UHD Monitor. the Monitor works when connected directly to my laptop via HD but my Webcam and audio microphone also must connect to my laptop. My goal is to remove wires connected to my laptop so i can take it on the go. I purchased a USB C Multiport hub but when i connect it to my Laptop USB-C then connect the monitor HDMI cord to the hub, the monitor doesn't recognize my laptop.
Is this because my laptop has “USB 3.1” and this doesn't support this sort of connection? Does anyone have any other ideas how i can connet my monitor and other devices to a hub instead of direclty into my laptop ?
