How to set up Mb SD C4 Wireless on a Dell XPS15 9550 laptop WIN10 and run Mercedes Xentry 09.2019 software?

MB-SD-Connect-C4-WIFI-set-on-WIN10-laptop-1

I’m running Win10 on a Dell XPS15 9550 laptop with Intel AC 8260 internal wireless card installed.

After days of investigation and testing, the most important thing is that: The drivers for your wireless card MUST support AdHoc functionality.

This can be verified at the DOS command prompt. The command is: Netsh wlan show drivers
This command will show “Yes” or “No” on the line for “Hosted Network Support”.
If this line says “No”, AdHoc will not work properly.
Although I’m running Win10, Intel has drivers for the 8260 wireless card for Win8 which will enable proper AdHoc functionally.

The trick is to download the driver first, prior to removing your existing wireless driver. Download the driver ONLY, not any driver file with additional driver management apps included in the downloaded file.

Now you can go into Device Manager and remove your existing wireless card AND check the box that removes all software associated with it. My Win8 driver download file was a .exe file. I double clicked on it and the Win8 driver for my Intel 8260 card was installed. Went to Device Manager, right clicked on my 8260 wireless card and selected Properties. Clicked on Advanced and was able to see several AdHoc related entries. These AdHoc entries were not visible using the Win10 drivers.

AdHoc can now be verified at the DOS command prompt. The command is:
Netsh Wlan show drivers.
This command will show “Yes” on the line for “Hosted Network Support”.
If this line says “No”, AdHoc will not work properly

With AdHoc functionality confirmed, additional DOS commands can now be used to enable Road24h wireless connectivity.
This is what worked for me. Depending on your computer skills, your results may vary.

P.S. Recommend to get  MB DAS Xentry HDD 09.2019 for WIN7 or WIN10, WIFI set on WIN10 100% OK!

MB SD C4 Tourismo bus communication error (fixed)

I bought the MB SD C4+Dell D630 Laptop pre-installed bundle, when I test it have the problem SD Connect C4 cannot power on when connected with  Tourismo bus, I contacted there customer service at obdii365.com, and here is the solution provided by their engineer.

I will explain my problem in detail:

” I have tried 2 different mb sd connect c4 on Tourismo buses and sd connect does not power on.In the meantime those MB SD Connect C4 works normally to any other MB Truck and car.also on Tourismo have check MB Star C3 and works normally.”

You should check:
bus with OBD
pin 4 + 5
both must be connected and ground

In SDConnect “-” is 5 pin only. There is 4 contact not used in 16pin OBD connector.

“i’m getting an communication error when connecting xentry to a tourismo.”

Tourismo-bus-communication-error-1

A Communication error has occurred when access FPS system

Tourismo-bus-communication-error-2

Solution:

– turn OFF/ON BUS ground switch (our remove battery – cable). FPS1 wake up and MB Star diagnostic recognized FPS1/VIN code.

or
– enter the DAS ATEGO truck come and place manually and then it will work perfect

” Another problem is : “Currently the speed limit is set to 100 km/h. I’m trying to set it to higher value (with MB SD C4 DAS using modified EOL files). On the menu it tells me that I can, because there are higher values (105 km/h. 112 km/h, etc). But when I try to set the speed limit to higher than 100 km/h it doesn’t allow me to do it (can’t save the changes). When I try to set it below 100 km/h everything goes fine.”

I done the Access special settings , and it working perfect now!

How to do if Mercedes w176 not start & no fault codes in SD Connect C4

Issues :

There have customer who have Mercedes w176 (a gasoline with 270 engine year 2013) and it is a pain in the ass. The car came with a platform because it would not start. He run a quick test using the SD connect C4 mux and all control units were clear. He tried to start the car but the engine would half turn and stop. Something was cutting it off electrically.

Furthermore, without any obvious reason, the engine fan started working and the communication with the engine was lost. He have discovered that the the engine control was loosing a ground point. that is why the engine fan started. He have put an outside earth and the car came back in engine turning and cutting out electrically. He tried everything.

checked all fuses and relays (including the mini relays)

replaced terminal 30g relay

replaced exhaust camshaft sensor

checked crank sensor with oscilloscope and looks ok

tried second key

guided test for drive authorization (all ok)

and many many more

But still no fault codes.

 

So how to do next ? Suggestion from the experienced :

The problem with most technically inclined individuals trying to fix a dead engine is that we tend to quickly forget THE BASICSingredients for combustion to take place just so the engine may run!

1. Check for spark, is it there throughout or intermittently or not there at all,

-Famous L5, ECU, DI coils, e.t.c

2. Check for fuel rail pressure ( challenging on any A-class but doable if u want it to start and run),

furthermore M270 has piezo direct injection. so u have to find a way to confirm that fuel is delivered (repair fuel system accordingly)

3. Check for compression and make reference to specific values in WIS.

So far I’m loving MB STAR Diagnostic Tool. I am going to code the car this weekend for Bi-Xenons and then code the card to accept the OEM front LED city lights. I’m doing a e55 bi-xenon retro fit to replace the stock crappy h7 halogen e55 projectors.

Top Reasons to Get MB Star SD C4C5 and Laptop Full Package

Here list reasons why you should buy a Mercedes Benz MB Star diagnostic tool with a laptop full package:

—With the Dell D630’s dedicated serial port, there was no issue for me…. it was plug and play… I just loaded the HDD from the Seller into my Dell and all I needed to do was activate WIS/EPC and XENTRY/DAS with “activation keys”… I only use the Dell for mb star sd c4 purposes…

—Bought an older Dell D630 laptop with a serial port and plan on buying MB SD Connect C4 directly installed in a Dell D630 hard drive. No Virtual Machine issues.

Mercedes Benz Star diagnosis C3 / C4 actually specifies the computer or tablet used in the SDS environment… The T30 is rather slow but will get the job done.

—If your ever in the market for a faster SDS laptop, the Dell D630 with at least 2Ghz and the speed improvement especially when using Xentry is like night and day.

—the HDD that is pre-loaded with the software for SD Connect 4 by the Seller, is inserted into the DELL D630… The DELL D630 is the fastest laptop with the RS232 feature.

—Need to connect directly into a RS232 port without using an interface – this is why I went for the complete system with laptop.

—The software Xentry/ DAS is a bit slow on an old IBM so that it is worth paying a bit extra and getting a Dell D630.

—There is a very specific set of COM ports you must use for it to work. For example you need DAS to be looking at COMx within the VM session, then VMware needs to redirect that to COMx which is a ‘physical’ serial port on your machine.

—It’s probably because it has a real com port. Most laptops these days have just a USB port and things don’t always work right if you’re using a USB to RS-232 converter. You wouldn’t want to brick a component during an update if you’re using USB. The other option would be to get a Mb Star C4 system, but then they cost more. I think there are a couple other systems out there like IBM that also have real com ports.

—The PART D mux(C3) is a serial ported mux—that’s the reason for the Dell and IBM older laptops.

—The PART W mux(SD connect C4) is and Ethernet/wifi connected system and that is the reason for use on other laptops—the issue is the operating system currently DAS Xentry only runs on XP.

—Plug and play!! It is more convenient for users because the software for C3/SD C4 diagnostic tool will be pre-installed before delivery.

NOTE

Note that the computer consumes electricity even when the computer power is

off. If the battery pack is fully charged, the battery will fully discharge in the followingperiod of time:

1.When power is off: Approx. 9 weeks
2.In sleep ( )/standby ( ): Approx. 4 days
3.In hibernation: Approx. 8 days

If “Wake Up from LAN” is disabled, the period of time in sleep will become

slightly longer, and the period of time in hibernation will become about the same as during power-off.

When the DC plug is not connected to the computer, disconnect the AC cord from CnAutotool wall outlet. Power is consumed simply by having the AC adaptor plugged into an electrical outlet.
