Default Bmw Icom A2 interface

I have recently bought the new Icom A2 interface with Isid 3.1, Ista/d 2.36 and Ista/p 2.49.2 software and i would like to ask if anyone knows if it's possible to connect wireless to the car's obd without the LAN cable since it support's WLAN option or what else needed to make it possible? The Icom A2 interface is a clone.

Regards
Dimitris

I don't think any of the A1 ICOM Clones had WLAN card inside, and I would be surprised if A2 ICOM Clone did.

If it does, I am pretty sure you need a special Access Point connected to ISIS Server to use WLAN mode.

Thanks mate for your answer. Actually the ICOM 2 supports Wireless lan. As you can see from the below pic which I have already uploaded (Icom A2 connected in my car's obd slot) with the system light green (turn on - operational) it has 4 lights. One for communication, one for wireless lan, on for LAN (RJ 45) and one for the operation named system. I was wondering if there is some kind of emulator or something to "trick" the interface so it thinks it is connected on an ISIS server even running from VMware.
