If I was just using a 5n1 it would be fine, but I use water detection sensors so if it goes offline it could be an issue.

I had two alerts last night for signal loss at the VT location. Both the Access and the SmartHub were listed as offline for 2 hours by 2:23AM EST. However, checking my WU page, the Access has been reporting data steadily since midnight.

So slight confusion here. Not sure if this is a false alarm...or if possibly the Access is now back filling data on WU?

I don't think there's any wunderground back-filling going on yet.   I would expect that feature would require a firmware upgrade.

Maybe it's an issue between the Access and MyAcurite?

I installed the Access the other day and last night, set it up on MyAcurite. After removing the old SmartHub from the account, all seemed well. But the Access wasn't uploading data. I unplugged the unit...then remembered the battery backup. So I unplugged the Ethernet, waited, replugged and all seemed well. I noticed my upload times weren't as instantaneous as with the SmartHub, but all the data was showing on WU. I believe someone here mentioned it doesn't send data as frequently, but it send all the data it's captured.

This morning, it seems to have stopped sending data again. I went on to the MyAcurite website and the status is color is yellow and says "Weak". But looking at the signal strength, it says "Strong".

Anyone have any issues with their Access?

Don't worry - they will soon kill the Access just like they did with the SmartHub and then sell you ANOTHER version.
