I'm not that familiar with some of the fritz features, but does disabling UPnP on the friztbox help? 



Hi - thanks for suggestion.  UPnP got disabled a few days ago - no change, so not a factor.  Cheers!

Update.  We had a USB3 to Gig ethernet dongle (left over from the last X1).  Plugged that into a USB3 port on the dock.  Uses the same driver.  Lenovo USB Ethernet #2 device appears in the device list.  All good - no fault on notebook sleep.  So it seems it's a firmware or hardware issue with the dock's ethernet.


Considering now how to engage with Lenovo over the 40+ hours I spent tracking down this problem with their $300 dock!


Initial signs of network failure didn't exactly point to the PC/dock in question.  I didn't get into this in my OP, but first symptoms were a cisco switch going nuts and not getting any receive packets from the router despite all port lights up.   It took me a few weeks of elimination of (underfloor) cables and the switch to work back to the X1 and only latterly did symptoms with the fritz start showing.  And I was doing all this around my partners home work hours - and she works a lot!  The one saving grace is that it wasn't effecting her network connection while working. ๐Ÿ˜…


Anyway, that's my story.  Thanks to everyone who made helpful suggestions. ๐Ÿ™
