Hello everyone. I would like to buy some docking station/hub for my S23 Ultra. I don't know what devices are compatible and if there is some official list or even Samsung dock for my phone. I saw some docking stations with usb ports and even ethernet, sd card readers, usb-c connectors, audio/mic 3.5mm jack, etc.

Is it even possible to use ethernet/wired connection with DeX? I would be very thankful for all your suggestions, what products are compatible with my phone's Dex.

Thanks in advance.

Most USB-C multiport hubs will work with DeX and Amazon is a great source.  Yes, ethernet works and will provide 1gE as long as your connected monitor is less than 4K.  The USB-C speeds from the phone won't allow 1 gig speed and 4k at the same time so the ethernet speed drops to USB 2 speeds.  You can run WQHD (2560x1440) and 1gE concurrently and get 1g ethernet speeds.

Thank you for your suggestion and help. I use Logitech since some 1993 I guess 😄 from 90s for sure. I trust them, will look for their hubs. Much love for help!

I just use a USB-C multi-port. The great thing with that is my laptop only has USB-C ports, so it is one accessory that covers everything. Since wireless DeX isn't always proctical (like at a hotel) I would reccomend an HDMI port, USB-C charging port so you can keep your phone charged while using, and USB-A ports. Make sure you have enough USB-A ports for a flashdrive as well as mouse/keyboard.

A bit late, but to cut the story short. I ended up buying that round Samsung DeX station on second hand market and it's just great. I also got usb-c universal docking station 7in1 from maker called UGREEN. This one was actually bought to me by company where i work for use in my office, when i work remotely, so I can use extra screen with my laptop. I tested it with my phone and it works great. Even the ethernet works. Thank you all for your help. You solved all my problems.
