This happens because the license borrowing is specific to the Windows login and saves information to that Windows Profile.
You run and borrow a license for Architecture and then try to run Civil 3D. The license borrowing is feature based and you are borrowing a license for a particular feature. When borrowing, ensure you double-click the shortcut icon you need to run when disconnected. Then use the same shortcut icon when disconnected from the network.
The borrowed license binds with the network card, if that card isn't available (or enabled) when disconnected then it's effectively left behind on the docking station. Disconnect from the docking station efore you borrow the license, hardwire the network cable to the laptop then borrow the license.
If the Network card can't be seen then it can't authenticate against it. You may be able to go into the Windows power management options. Or you may need to "Enable" it
To turn off the power management option
Go to Start-> Control Panel double-click the System icon and click the Device Manager button on the Hardware tab and expand out Network adapters. Double click the adapter and select the Power Management tab. Uncheck the box to "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" (Fig. 1) and click Ok. Reboot.
You may need to Enable the network card. Start-> Control Panel double-click the System icon and click the Device Manager button on the Hardware tab and expand out Network adapters. Right click your network adapter and select Enable.
