It’s a good solution to set up BMW ENET cable to work with BMW ICOM ISTA-P software to do ecu programming for BMW F series.


Download BMW ISTA-P Loader V4.8.7 and install it on Windows XP

Plug the BMW ENET(Ethernet to OBD) interface in the car
Set in In ISTA-P
HO-ICOM/ENET direct in VCI Config
In Network Connection - right click in your ENET - properties - TCP/IPv4 - Properties set

Disable anti virus, firewall & WIFI connection.

Check ENET cable is well connected to car and PC. Turn on ignition and wait for a minute or two.

Start the ISTA P loader.

Click on the "start ENET ICOM emulator button" once. ZGW search will now open.

Enter your cars ZGW IP and click "continue". Then wait for emulator running notifications to appear.

Note: wSTA/P asks for ignition ON/OFF during programming use the KL15 controls located in the notification area of the taskbar (right click on ISTA/P notification icon). Default setting is "ON". Obviously actual car ignition will need to be turned ON/OFF also.
