WS 2902 won't connect to internet
« on: February 27, 2018, 03:24:39 PM »
the wireless icon just flashes til it quits.  never gets a hook-up.  did some searching last night and found out my router and 2902 both use same default IP address 192.168.0.1  Is this my problem and if so how do i fix it?

had the unit about a month now and everything works fine but i am waiting to see if it change to feb 29 or not.  i can't login in because my computer has already accessed that ip and i am at a loss.  thanks1

edit:  i was able to change my weather station to 192.168.0.10 but still no internet access.  and i was able to manually enter the information at ambientweather.net but still no wifi.

Do you use MAC address filtering/blocking on your router? If so you may have to find the MAC address of the Weather station and enter it in the router to allow it to connect.

That's something you would have set up already and since you don't know I'm guessing no MAC address filtering is being used.

You mention that your router uses 192.168.0.1 address. Is that the WIFI address or the WAN (WAN, Internet connection). What I'm getting at is there the possibility that address is the WAN/Internet connection and your WIFI uses 192.168.1.1 ? Meaning changing your PWS to a "1." subnet instead of "0" may help.

i have my display on a separate ip address now.  i know i am at 2.4 on the device. the wireless between the display and the equipment on the pole is working perfectly.  my router does not require the mac address. i opened my firewall and attempted.  i still can't get wireless on my display.  any other suggestions?

Debbie, open a command prompt on any windows computer. Then in the black screen type 'ipconfig', 3 in the picture.
Then look a 1, that is the IP address of the computer you are on.
look a 2, that is the ip address of your router.

Now set your WS2902 to something that the DHCP server will not hand out. if your router is 192.168.1.254, set your 2902 to 192.168.1.202
The first three octet numbers must match that of the router. The forth can be anything as long as it is not the same as another device on the network.
Also make sure you type in the correct 'Subnet Mask'. Most of the time it is 255.255.255.0
This should get your 2902 on the local network.

ipconfig shows my router and weather display with the same ip - 192.168.0.1  i don't know how to go into my weather display because i can't get it to show on the network.  and when i try to get in with my browser it defaults to my router. i am at a loss...

Debbie, ok, now we know your network subnet address scheme is 192.168.0.x and that your router is indeed 192.168.0.1

I don't know how you determine that ipconfig shows that your 2902 is also on 192.168.0.1

Did you follow the instructions from page 33 on in your user manual?

to be honest i don't recall how i determined they shared an ip address since i can't access it.  sorry.  i pulled out my manual and i did not complete setup starting on page 33.  i got called away and then the screen had changed so i set up weather underground and ambient weather from their site - not from my display. how do i get the display to return page 33 setup?  i'm sorry for being such a nuisance.

edit: i did setup wunderground as shown on pg 31-32

I don't have a 2902, this is just what I read from the manual.  :-)
It says to hold the RAIN and ALARM at the same time for 4 seconds, then the wifi will start flashing rapidly. Then use your app to continue the setup. Page 35.
