This is all about network connection (wired or wireless) setup for ICOM A2 diagnosis with ISTA+ or programming with ISTA/P. All situations you may encounter are solved here.
*****Part 1 Wired connection when ISTA-P programming
it’s better to use Lan cable to connet to network instaed of wifi, for wifi is not stable sometime and cannot start programs ISTA-P (ISS-NEXT)
how to connect to network via Lan cable?
method 1: PC – router – ICOM
connect PC to the router, then connect ICOM to router
method 2: ICOM – PC
directlt connect ICOM emulator to PC
*****Part 2 Wireless/WiFi connection when ISTA+ diagnostics
you can use wifi during diagnosis with ISTA+. but sometimes, the connetion will be cut off automatically and program prompts you to continue connection
go to ICOM Configuration Manger, and select Wlan settings-> Security type:WPA2 personal. the password should be the same with that of router. then save data and unplug and re-plug the Lan cable to connect to icom. it is impossible to diagnose via wifi if password is not set
(NOTE: this is not for USB WiFi; USB wifi comes with password and router setup)
what to do if WIFI fails to connect?
go to VCI settings, then select “HO-ICOM/NET”, NOT Ediabas
open Itool Radar to change ICOM IP address
find out IP address: 188.8.131.52
then go to “Confort Module” to change ip
Done! WIFI connection success.
