I bought this Win8.1 tablet since the HEX-NET didn't do close to what I had expected through the VCDS mobile, I had hoped this device would help me simplify and make the gadget toolbox smaller (in every way) on the other hand it has only increased the hassle and added the need for additional devices so far!OK, so an old TDI ECU and a Win 8.1 tablet don't play nice together in AP mode, but are fine on USB, is that a correct summary?
Remind me, what tablet you have.
Unfortunately when I now finally had time and tried it on the same vehicle (EV 99) as I did when I started this thread all I get is no response from controller, restarted VCDS a number of time, even restarted the computer after the BETA update, and the HEX-NET of course also wanted it's SW updated so I did that too.
Same thing happened on my 2002 Eurovan so I don't believe it is the vehicle.
It did communicate with my 1998 TDI ECU (it's not in the 98 body any more) but did not once display any numbers in the fields at the top, where you have VAG number etc etc, only way I knew it was connected was I the fault codes and measure blocks became available to click on.
Also an odd thing on the 98 TDI is that when using the WIN8.1 tablet and Hex-Net in NET mode the TDI timing will NOT show it shows just fine in USB mode.
P.S. The little I tested VCDS mobile it however seemed faster after the sw update!
That was primarily an issue with certain older WiFi chips in devices and should not be a problem with a Venue 8 Pro.A) Is this something related to the chipset (as it seems you were able to reproduce the issues)
Correct, there are still some WiFi issues. We are working with our vendor, and they are working with the WiFi module vendor. At this point, that's the biggest reason why the HEX-NET isn't out of Beta yet, at least as an interface for VCDS running on a PC.After having read a couple other threads maybe it's not at all "my" end but the wifi inside the HEX-NET?
So I was just going to post on here yesterday that it seems it is much more stable now, was even able to fully log a car over WIFI and the Dell Venue Pro 8.That was primarily an issue with certain older WiFi chips in devices and should not be a problem with a Venue 8 Pro.

However right after that I was curious to see how it would look on my new iPhone 6+ whereby I got this message, maybe this belongs in another thread? Maybe there is one already (will go looking after I post this).
I tried multiple times to turn off and on the WIFI and pull out the VCDS module and back in, nothing, still the same message
Yeah that did cross my mind after I typed that too that shouldn't have anything to do with the wifi part..In principle, whatever might be up with that car shouldn't affect your ability to connect to the HEX-NET via WiFi.
I've not updated in a while, I think since the last one that it required to do, I'll have to check on that THANKS!I
With older versions of the HEX-NET firmware, only one client could connect to it when it was in AP mode, and when another one tried, it wouldn't be able to. However, that shouldn't be the case anymore, assuming your HEX-NET is fully up-to-date?
