How to solve SD CONNECT C4NOT Connected via LAN or WIFI

Here are optional solutions for those with a Sd connect C4 but cannot be connected via LAN (or wifi).

Operation system: Window 7

Static IP172.29.127.xxx

Battery: the 6 batteries are installed, fully charged

 

Error message:

when I connect it to the MUX (the 6 batteries are installed) it tries to connect but it gives up after a minute or two and I have a yellow triangle over the network icon in the taskbar.

The display on the MUX shows that its number is 00, it also displays a cable icon and a countdown timer and the message “Device not in use”

SD connect C4 NOT Connected via LAN or WIFI

 

The display doesn’t show the wifi option, only the cable icon.

When I start SDConnect Administration Toolkit it says the MUX is not cable accessible.

 

How-to:

 

Here are possible solutions from users (try on your own risk) and working solutions from real professionals but for SD connect mux off obdexpress.co.uk (confirm yours is the same as that in obdexpress if you want use the solution).

 

Possible solutions from users:

 

Option 1: LAN adapter

Open it and check the LAN adapter soldering if it gone loose

 

SDConnect relies on broadcasts/multicasts (like the DHCP protocol) to discover SDConnect devices.  They can be con completely different subnets and be “detected” but you cannot interrogate or configure them until you get their IP addresses configured for basic management setup.

 

 

Option 2: Toolkit

For Connection you´ll need the Toolkit.

WLAN is not seen until configured, if you reseted the SDConnect you´ll need to reconfigure it with the Toolkit.

 

 

Option 3: Battery

You may try forcing your NIC in your laptop to 100Mb/Full Duplex, as many will default and negotiate to 1Gb/s, which I don’t believe some of the SDConnects talk over too well.

 

Also, FWIW, I have been getting an error 750 when trying to communicate to the SDConnect recently.  The connection seems very unstable. I have only used a direct Ethernet connection.  I have not investigated it very much, but I have resorted to the C3 for right now, which has never failed with 1.2012.

I reset it back to factory settings as well.  I have not had an opportunity to investigate it to any extent, so I am unsure what the problem may be, but SDNetContol is stating a Network Error to the SDConnect. It is all connected via CAT6 and no WiFi.

It is best practice to remove the batteries form the SDConnect when not changing firmware or leave them in there?  I have quality rechargeable batteries I use and typically leave them in when changing firmware, but I have left them in for a longer period.  When I removed the first set, the batteries clearly leaked but didn’t appear to damage the SDConnect and I throughly cleaned it and it has worked since them.  If anyone has any suggesting regarding this issue, it would be much appreciated.

Working solution from pros working for obdexpress.co.uk:

 

This issue usually can be solved as follows:

 

– re-set IP address:

1) Connect MB SD Connect C4 with LAN cable

2) Open Virtual Network Editor and use vmnet0 (Auto-Bridging )

3) Install (2 ) Local Area Connection

4) Set IP:

Local Area Connection ( 1 ) IP 172.29.127.XXX this for IP MUX

Local Area Connection ( 1 ) IP 192.168.1.XXX this for IP network or IP Network you use

5) Make configuration for SD connect wireless,

(SD C4 usually solve the issue after IP re-match)

 

 

– setup the PC date

The date must be the same as the software version

E.g. Your DAS is 2016.09 version, then your PC date should be 2016/09

 

 

– replace the Config file in c:programmecredes-benzconfig

(this is for MB STAR C3 users)

The BEST Solution for Newbies Failed to Install/Activate Xentry XDOS

This is the best solution for newbies who has trouble in 09.2018 Xentry XDOS installation or activation:

http://www.obdexpress.co.uk/wholesale/mb-sd-connect-compa...

 

Why do I think it’s the best for newbies?

Because the full kit (SDconnect C4 + 09.2018 XDOS + Dell D630)  is handy and help save a lot.

XENTRY-DAS-OPENSHELL-1

 

All software is installed on the Dell D630 laptop, done before shipping to your end.

With the dedicated serial port on D630, there is no issue for users…. it was plug and play… the HDD with Mercedes software is loaded into the Dell laptop and WIS/EPC and XENTRY/DAS has been activated with “activation keys” before delivery...you can use it for Mercedes-Benz diagnostics, coding or programming with SD connect C4, when you receive the package.

Note that HTT-WIN is updated to 09.2018 Mercedes software disk. Software released in 2017 and 2018 doesn’t come with HTT-WIN. But now, it comes again!

09.2018-htt-win-mercedes

 

On a side note, Dell D630 is second-hand but 100% functional - no worries!

 

 

With the SD connect C4 full kit, you’ll NEVER have issues of setup on a laptop, installation and activation as what the users complaints

 

Attach: Error and solution on Dell D630

 

Error: have now installed it on my recently acquired Dell 630. Everything installed well, however when I get to the point of using it and it automatically goes to use HHT(as my car is a 1993 model)it says"diagnostic connector is being initialised" however then it says"com port assigned! close other use!"

Solution: go to the windows system menu in control panel and under the harware section look at the com port assignmennts and make sure the com port you designated isn't already assigned to something else.

 

also, does the dell630 have a dedicated RS232 com port or are you using a usb/pcmcia/cardbus to RS232 converter.

Xentry PassThru - Questions and Answers

There are a lot of Xentry PassThru questions frequently asked and answers given by users and folks in http://mhhauto.com/ Hope it helps.

 

All PassThru versions works as good and as same as SDconnect C4 units?

- for xentry, i check all diag files are identical with open shell.
- for das, it is not as complete as openshell with sd4. see note above.
passthru limited to obd2 vehicles only, pkw,transp, smart.
- passthru device can't be used with vediamo and dts monaco.

 

 

Could you explain this a little more: "install block check keys to daimler server"?

from old crack:

Code:

C:Program FilesMercedes-Benzxentryfusokoeclipseplugins
Rename File
From
com.daimler.xentry.diagservice_1.6.0.201608011018.jar
To
com.daimler.xentry.diagservice_1.6.0.201608011018.jar.DELETE

now its other version number
also block starkey center
host file:

Code:

127.0.0.1       openshell.aftersales.daimler.com
::1             openshell.aftersales.daimler.com

 

 

This is pass thru version is there a other version for diagnose for pass thru device???

so 1 dvd diagnose other dvd for programming?

only 1 dvd mate. Sdflash folder for programming is include in it.
the using of xentry passthru version is like the xentry open shell version only it is using passthru devices.

 

 

Xentry Internal Error (3.17)-3.175 "no access authorization code" after xentry diagnose while onlineCOPY C:ProgramDataLicDirlic_key_2.dat to the desktop, rename it to lic_key_2.x4711, and make this file READ ONLYMOVE it back into the directory C:ProgramDataLicDir. make sure the lic_key_2.dat file IS NOT read only while lic_key_2.x4711 file READ ONLY...

 

 

DAS license 0 day, how to do?

extract and copy this to dasbin:

DAS license 0 day error fix for passthru.rar

 

Xentry Passthru Model covered?

Pretty much all can vehicles. Works great with Xentry vehicles. So I would say Xentry Passthru is good for 2006 and up.

Passthru Models are only from EURO5 Vehicles (for Europe)
