I had this same issue for the first couple days, but like you, it corrected itself and I don't remember what I did, if anything, to fix it.

The fix was the later (v1.19 IIRC) firmware which did one or two subtle things behind the scenes  ;).

Only strange thing I see now is CWOP Findu page. Chart for solar radiation will not show above 999 W/m2. As soon as my station reports >or=1000 W/m2 it graphs as a zero or 1. It never did this before... but looking at the raw data being received by CWOP, it clearly shows Example "L1005" for 1005 W/m2 but graphs as though the decimal place is off Example 1.005 or .1005. This seems like a problem with FINDU, but it happened the day I switched to WFL and has been this way ever since... Maybe just a coincidence. Strange though.

I don't have UV and Solar sensors. I can't test it properly. I will try to cheat ISS to send this data. I will test it again with WL60 and Cumulus.
Unfortunately it will not be the next day.

I'm still not certain it's a WFL issue.
These are the raw data packets at 7 Min intervals received by CWOP/APRS. The last set of numbers after the "L" is the Watts/meter2. Notice the 4 entries at 1826, 1833, 1847 and 1950  zulu. These are graphed below as "0" or almost "0" its hard to tell exactly.

The dips after 2000 and 2200 zulu were actual clouds. Notice it only dropped to ~200 W/m2.

This is the actual Solar Radiation recorded today at 15 minute intervals. Only one entry here showing >1000 due to the longer and offset record interval.

Regarding Weatherlink, I didn't have any great expectations from reading this thread, but using the WFL option to send using the "WL IP" mode, all I can see in the WeatherLink "Bulletin" web page is the barometer data and the "wind rose" data.   The temperature and rain sections and all of the other "gateways" are empty.   Not much to see here.  I tried switching the mode to "WL PC" and don't see any changes.

Regarding Weatherlink...

PLEASE make it clear upfront whether you're talking about 'local' Weatherlink for Windows (eg v6.0.4) or the weatherlink.com 2.0 cloud platform. Both are supported by WFL but the two have very different configuration and potential issues and settings and just saying 'Weatherlink' doesn't provide much of a clue (at least maybe not without reading several other preceding posts in the thread).

You mention a the Bulletin web page somewhere in the post so presumably it's wl.com in this particular instance, but it would be useful to confirm? So, all outside readings are missing? Are these readings visible on the console display? Is this connected to wl.com as an IP logger or a WLv6 logger?

I fitted the WiFiLogger to my Davis Vantage Vue today but I have not been able to read any weather data from it.  The WiFi connection appears to be working fine; I can successfully read the "Weather Station Settings" page and it reads back (for example) the latitude and longitude and altitude settings previously entered into the console and I can use the "Send Command" function e.g. to turn the backlight on and off, so the communication to the unit is definitely working.  However there is no data in any of the fields of the "Real Time Data" page.  I have already updated the WiFiLogger to firmware version 1.19 and the Vantage Vue is already running version 3.00 firmware.  (See attached screenshots.)
Updated 31st Jul 2018:  The logger is sending weather data to Wunderground.com but the local "Real Time Data" screen remains blank (as per screenshot attached).
I think I know where is the problem. Your console has firmware version 3.0 I have prepared WFL for 3.xx format.
I will repair that tomorrow and send you repaired firmware ASAP.

I am pleased to report that Wojciech created an updated version of the WiFilogger firmware which he sent me to test and it has fixed the problem.  I can now see the data on the "Real Time Data" page as expected. (I assume Wojchiech will be updating the released version of the firmware to incorporate this modification.)

And I thought I knew everything :oops: ?
My original setup is Davis VP2 Pus with Envoy USB logger set as serial WL6.0.2I had signed up Weatherlink.com v2 with that information.
I don't run this regularly as using Cumulus but run this WL twice a month to keep WL data complete at 10 min interval

With the Wifilogger I have Vue consoleI have WiFiLogger uploading to Weatherlink.com with that same login info but at 5 min interval
I had not run WL6.0.2 with WiFiLogger (TCP/IP) until today and it gave a message that the station was VP2 and download is Vue and I should change station info.
I ignored the message and WL6.0.2 started logger download.  Everything seems fine in all the reports and data browse.
Will I have any future data issue if I keep my WL6.0.2 set as station VP2 Plus and use the Vue WiFiLogger setup?
Thanks,Paul

Hello, can anyone give me some help in setting up the CWOP section in the setup. I am a radio ham and have a call sign. I have had several attempts but this has failed to upload my data to the site. Many thanks Steve G4YTK

First thing is, you have to update system to 1.19. If you have 1.11 version, this one had CWOP problem.
You need to save proper data. PaulMy send proper values.
after that
I can provide special firmware which will give you special windows with debug information.
WFL always print debug information via UART (3v) when anything is happened (blinking of the blue led), but this need USB<-> UART cable + some little computer skills.
All we needed is some patience and more info.

This system is quite new. Why you think that is your fault?
It can be problem with WFL, or CWOP. You will never know until you see debug info.
Have you been successful with any other export function? PWS? WU?

Yes I have no issues with PWS or WU they are working fine and reporting well. All issues with Davis Bulletin have been resolved with v 1.19. The Davis app is responding well and updating too now with no issues. I am very pleased with the WiFi data logger and pleased I bought the logger, it's so good not having to run a pc 24 7

WFL was made to resolve problem of distribution data from Davis console to the Internet. This situation is floating that why I need info from users.
WheatonRon had problem with CWOP. His problem was that I used bad CWOP password in early firmware. Problem was with word "vers", there was "ver" in his system. 3 from 7 cwop servers didn't accept "ver". Funny thing is that you can use passwrod "-1" instead of "-1 vers WiFiLogger 1.19" and will work better than full password.
I will prepare special firmware with debug info for you. I will send you it tomorrow.

Earlier I reported a problem with WFL 1.19 uploading regular and Rapidfire data to WU. Based on your replies, I moved uploading of both back to Weather Display.

Today I noticed that my PWS data had problems. For example, starting about 1415 yesterday temperature went 110 degrees. It stayed there until 1845 when it dropped to 108 degrees. It stayed there until 0755 this morning. All other values show similar freezes.

Going back to Jul 31 there are other similar data freezes. Between July 30-31 I had a major power outage that prevented data uploads. My Davis Pro 2 console ran on battery during that time. Just now I reset WFL and will see what happens going forward.

Same problem with Weatherlink.  WU, PWS, CWOP all work fine.  Just get barometer and wind rose on Weatherlink.com, and that's just occasionally.  Not that big of a deal to me since the others work flawlessly.  It's entirely possible that I'm doing something wrong.

Sorry I am late. I had hard week in my regular job.
I am trying to fix this problem when real time data view and RapidFire cause console latency and CRC reading is occur. LOOP data are not read properly, so it's freeze.
It's ok now, but still testing.

About WL.COM if you have new free account. You should use WL PC and click on "Activation" text in WL.COM windows on WiFiLogger.
1. Set WL PC
2. Save
3. Click on "Activation"
4. Wait interval time, data should be send properly.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Let me know if that was the problem.
All new DIDs from WL.COM has to be actiavted before using.

If you don't have "Activation" text, then you need to update to the latest version, bin file and HTML files.

That was the trick!   It wasn't obvious to me before that this was "clickable".

Same here.  I figured "Activation" meant activate by picking one of the options in the drop down menu since it didn't say enable.  Works for me as well now.  I knew it had to be something I was doing wrong lol.

I have published new firmware 1.20.
I have repaired consol reading problem with RapidFire and Real Time Data. LOOP data wasn't renew because of console blocking by too often readings.
I hope that will solve this problem for good.

If you have version 1.19 only bin file has to be updated, no html files.

As noted below by the maker of this great tool, you donít need to update the html files if your system had 1.19. If you just purchased yours new, that is not very likely so be sure and include the 10+ html files for updating if your firmware is 1.18 or earlier.
