You did not provide any proof that your batteries are good. You may have new batteries but even new batteries may be bad. You should try to charge them fully and then load them properly to test how well they can supply current and how long. Try to use at least 0.5 A load for the test. Or try a new set of batteries.

It is a good idea not to connect your laptop to internet but for different reasons than your SW getting corrupt, if the SW has been properly configured. But you can use another hard drive to test the laptop just to test the WLAN interface.

Since you have inserted charged batteries to your mux, you've already done everything that can affect warranty, if removing the WLAN card from the mux would do that (when you remove batteries, the WLAN card is there and you can remove and reinstall it without any signs left that you did it).

The mux should work with a car with one cal.ini setting, both with the LAN and the WLAN connection (I've understood that exceptions exist) but now your setting is for WLAN.
Hi,
Could you please help me. I have bought from china MB star C4 SDconnect and when I'm trying to connect on display show me "Device not in use". Is it broken MUX or not?
Thank you

Sounds like you have not configured your tool at all. You can find configuration instructions from your laptop (as discussed above, either your shop has put some instructions to your hard drive or you can read the official documents from the info application.

You should not expect WLAN on an external drive but you should have WLAN on your (host) computer. By the way I find it odd that you run the cheap virtual machine with a relatively expensive tool.

Hi Everybody again. I was away for few days. After all these scary stories about my MUX being black listed, blocked and cheap Chinese copy, I'm glad to report that it is working now. Well, I can connect wireless and wire. Also quick test went OK. I will explore more.
Big THANK you to all who helped me here. Especially Mr Diesel Benz.
Some advice to Mr.arvydas2 , do not bother with VM. Long time ago I tried to use VM with my old C3. Waste of time. Buy cheap Dell 620 (£ 120) and get native version. This is what I have. As Mr Diesel Benz pointed above it does not make any sense to use VM. Also about configuration. I had similar situation just a while ago, got SD nothing worked after some setting and experiments it came alive.

I have the same problem. I bought a China unit MUX and the SDconnect shows that there is no connection between the MUX and the laptop even though the MUX green light is lit. I am running the external HDD on a D620 with VMware as Arvydas is. Is there something I can do because I have the D620 as mentioned above by Lady Merc (native)? And where can I find configuration isntructions as mentioned by Diesel. Thanks so much for the help in advance

Hi everybody,
My MUX was replaced with new one by China supplier and also they changed my external HDD to internal. I have bought Dell 630 on eBay (160) and now my tool working perfectly.
I using wi fi connection. Thanks to everyone for help.
My suggestion is - Dell 620 or 630 and internal HDD.

Also never ever allow the SD Connect to take the firmware update. It will be a brick if it does.
To get rid of the update message, rename the three update folders in C:\Program Files\SDconnect Toolkit then reboot..

I don't know what CAL means? So I follow the instructions from a YouTube video, I set the IP address on the Network Connections then I tried to set it at the SDconnect Toolkit under Register/configure but I get that error: Admininestration-Due to network problems, no connection to the SDconnect established (749). Any ideas?
