I made a definitive guide of how to set up DHCP server on an external router for BMW ECU flashing with BMW ICOM diagnostic tool.


Why is this necessary?

When flashing specific modules (KOMBI, NBT,..) on F and G series, the

ICOM switches between different IP addresses and therefore loses sync with the computer. In order to resolve this issue, there needs to be a DHCP server between the ICOM and PC, which redirects any traffic on the selected MAC address (in this case the ICOM’s MAC address) to a specified IP address.


All three connected devices (PC, ROUTER and ICOM incl. icom a1, icom a2, icom next) need to be set to DHCP.


In this tutorial, I used an old D-Link DIR-300 router. You can use any router that supports setting its’ netmask to and has the capability for DHCP server.


Step-by-step instructions:


Before this, you need to turn off your Windows Firewall !


Step 1: Configure your PC to DHCP


Go to Control Panel > Network Connections > Ethernet>Properties



Select: Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click Properties.

Both tabs need to be as follows:



When you now connect something with LAN cable, your Ethernet card under Control Panel > Network Connections > Ethernet>Details should now show DHCP Enabled Yes.



Step 2: Configure your BMW ICOM Software to DHCP


Connect your ICOM to the car’s OBD2 port, wait for it to power on and connect it to your PC via LAN cable. Wait a minute or two to be recognized by the PC.

In iToolRadar or Dr. Gini take a look at your ICOM’s assigned IP address. Copy it into your web browser (I use Google Chrome) and at the end add :60080 (this is the port fort the settings).



You will then be asked for a Login username and password.

Username: root Password: NZY11502



Under LAN settings make sure your ICOM is set to DHCP. Make a note of the ICOM’s subnet mask.


Step 3: Configure your router for DHCP server.


Disconnect ICOM, power up your router and connect it to your PC via LAN cable. Use the router’s LAN ports.

Open Command Prompt (CMD) and type in ipconfig.

You will see a list of your Connection Cards configurations. Under LAN you will see your router’s IP addresses. Copy the Default gateway IP address into your internet browser. This time you do not add any port number at the end. P.S.: If there is no Default gateway listed, make a hard reset of your router with its’ physical reset button.

Type in the username and password of your router. The default username is usually admin and the password is either nothing/blank or also admin.

Now go under advanced and turn off your router’s firewall. In my case it is under ADVANCED>Firewall&DMZ. Disable SPI, save settings.

Then go to LAN settings and assign with subnet mask to your router.


Important: The subnet mask of the router needs to match ICOM’s subnet mask. Enable DHCP server.

Set the pool to be between 100 and 199.

Save settings and reboot your router.

The DHCP Client list should now be populated with your PC’s address. If not, physically power off and on your router (maybe also PC), then check again.


Settings should look like this:





And your PC listed under DHCP client List.


Step 4: Connect everything together


Power off your router, disconnect it from your PC, disconnect your ICOM from the car and LAN. No device should be connected via LAN to anything at this point and both router as well as ICOM should be powered off.


Follow this exact order:

Power on your router. Wait 2 min for it to fully boot up.

Connect ICOM to the car’s OBD2 port and wait for it to fully boot up. Connect ICOM to the router via LAN cable. Use the LAN ports on the router (port number does not matter). Wait a minute or two.

Connect your PC to the router via LAN cable. Use the LAN ports on the router (port number does not matter). Wait for the PC to recognize the router.

In web browser connect to your router’s settings menu as described in step 3. Take a look at the DHCP Client list under LAN settings. Your ICOM and PC should be listed.

Open iToolRadar or Dr. Gini and you should see your ICOM listed with an IP address of 192.168.0.x, where x is a number between 100 and 199.


This is it. You can now open ISTA/D and run a vehicle test with your BMW ICOM A3 Pro+. If ISTA/D recognizes your vehicle fully, you are all set. If not, there is a problem and you should not attempt to flash anything.

a cheaper Lexia 3 Citroen Peugeot diagnostic tool for only 59usd and there are missing some chip, compared to the original one.

Cheap Lexia 3


Original Lexia 3


Communicated with the vendor, they say the cheap Lexia 3 is designed with this kind of board as what i got.

On original interface “those caps” are resitors (473) 47k – R5 and R6. Optocouplers seems to be HCPL-063N-000E and HCPL-0500-000E. Also the filter from USB input is ACM2012D-900-2P (TDK) – most of clones have not this USB filter (2 resistors of 0 ohms are used).

On relay pcb the round red component is a varistor and original is V18ZA40P (in most clones is blue and have not the same specifications as the red one).

On relay pcb there is another optocoupler ZJYS51R5-2PT-01 (TDK) on the edge area near relays used for VAN BUS.

Some pictures from an original XS EVOLUTION PCB revision C.



He tells me, there mainly are two kinds of Chinese Lexia3 from different factories. One cheaper but lack some chips, the other with full chips of high quality.

The good Lexia 3 should come with PCBs as follows:





It’s item :


And it’s very kind of the vendor that he tells me, even if the PCB is designed as above, there are some different similar clones, not all HQ.

This is the comparison he shows me:

The left: good ; the right: bad




Big thanks to fobdii.com, with lots of info to help me. Finally, i adapted his advice and decided to exchange the cheap Lexia 3 for a high-quality Lexia 3  with a bit more money. It works like a charm now.

The check engine light on a Toyota is an indicator that one of the sensors or systems operated or monitored by the computer is malfunctioning.OBDSTAR X300M The computer manages the engine functions and emission controls as well as several other systems. All present day vehicles have the same type of regulatory system employed to operate the function of the drive train.


Since 1973 when the auto manufactures first started to employ emission controls on vehicles, computers, still in their infancy, came on the scene. Their initial duties were to monitor the exhaust emissions and make corrections in the timing and the carburetor mixture to control the emissions. A good understanding of the primary function and control the computer has on the impact of the performance of the vehicle serves to lend predictability to the issue. Computers are common place and becoming more and more advanced with increasing responsibilities in the operation of the vehicle.


The Toyota computer not only operates as an engine management center, but it controls the emissions, the security system, the air conditioning, the suspension, the new Trac systems, the transmission functions and more. It does not however, have anything to do with the internal components of the Toyota engine. The Toyota check engine light does not tell the operator if the engine is low on oil or of a particular malfunction due to wear.

The Toyota has a computer called an Engine Control Management (ECM) computer that controls engine management.UCANDAS VDM2 There is a Automated Braking System (ABS) computer that operates the function of the brakes, a Body Ride Control that operates a multitude of accessory options such as power windows, locks, seats and so on. There is an air conditioning computer for the use of dual air conditioning, a transmission computer, and some that operate in conjunction with the main ECM computer to control the suspension.


Purchase a computer OBS scanner from a parts store. The OBS scanner is a requirement for diagnosis. It is relatively inexpensive but a necessity. Computers store malfunctions in memory and illuminate the check engine light on the dash. The computer will relinquish these codes in the form of a series of numbers similar to a bar code. To retrieve and understand these codes, you need a scanner. The scanner will come with a code sheet to correspond with the codes presented.

Attach the code scanner to the OBS connector under the driver's side dash. Turn the ignition key on until the lights illuminate on the dash. Do not start the car. The scanner at this time will be displaying read codes. Push the button to read and the scanner will begin to interrogate the computer. It only takes a few seconds and the scanner will respond with a code or codes if more than one. Write these codes down, such as P1425 and look up the codes on the sheet provided for a definition.

Just because the computer generated a code for the oxygen sensor (oxygen sensor malfunction), does not necessarily mean that it is bad and should be replaced. The oxygen sensor measures the amount of oxygen in the exhaust system by producing a very small voltage that the computer sees as an indication as to the fuel mixture being to rich or lean. A multitude of things can cause the oxygen sensor to indicate the wrong mixture.XTOOL HD900 For example a bad spark plug, wire, air leak in the manifold, bad thermostat or bad gas. If the car is running well enough and you see that this code came up, know that no disaster is imminent and continue to drive until it can be repaired or you can check it out yourself. To properly diagnose a code, even with a computer, it helps to read the manual so that you know what each sensor does and what else on the vehicle may cause that sensor to generate a code.
