    We are trying to install the software that came with the cable on three dvd's

    We have a done a reinstall of win7 and followed the instructions up to page 30. When configuring DHCP we get a subnet of 192.168.44.1 and a broadcast address of 192.168.44.255 (these are not changeable,greyed out),instead of the 192.168.68.0 and 192.168.68.255 shown on the page, this will not allow the start IP address and end IP address's to be set up as specified.

    Any pointers would be appreciated. Gordon

    the software that comes with the cable we can get the Diagnostic program to work the first part showing live dater and any fault's. (not a lot of good as one of my mirrors does not work it just tells me can not talk to it lol)

    But there is like a tools part for programing and ajustment that uses a virtule machine we can not get this to load we have followed the step by step on how to install but when it comes to the post/ip addresses it does not tally up and the part that is wrong is greyed out so can not change the port /ip address as to what it tells you in the instrucions .
    So far we have had to reload windows and are tying to put this on a clean note book
    The cable i got from e bay is

    excuse spelling gordon

    Hi
    Had similar problem.
    Did manage to cure it at the time. Same section of instructions, page 30.

    I can't give you a definitive answer but the hiccup is on the previous step on page 29.

    Where you originally set the ip and subnet mask and it says click ok. I think you then need to hit apply before the next stage on page 30.

    You’ll see if you’re on the right track if the correct ip address is at the top (greyed out) when setting start and finish ip address on page 30.

    Thanks for the reply Homer1963, that got us past that part of the installation, unfortunately we now have hit the buffers again!.

    When DIS starts up and the Diagnostic head window appears there are no Diagnostic heads shown. The ping test and the diagnostic
    head software both work as described, but we can get no further.

    If you (or anyone else has had this problem and have a cure we would be very grateful for a heads-up.

    Thanks for reading , Gordon.
