You should be able to update the firmware.  Basically treat the Wifi logger like a Davis Weatherlink IP module.  Same directions and it should update.

I have 2 questions:
- Is it possible to upgrade the firmware? How?
- Is it possible to send data to a proprietary system via post HTTP or MQTT?
Yes, indeed. Both the upgrade/update instructions (PDF document) and the MQTT information can be found in the first message of this thread 'WiFiLogger - Connect your Davis console directly to the Internet via WiFi'

First thing to do is to reboot device after first setup to disable setup mode "WiFiLoggerSetup" network. It has to be disabled to send data through router.
Second: I assum that you know you new IP number inside home network. Use it to connect to WFL website, then navigate to SETUP| DATA EXPORT SETUP
Third find WU and WOW and type ID + passoword + set interval + click save, repeat for all platforms separatelly.
Last: WU and WOW needs some uploads to show it on web, but 1h for WU is enought.
You can go to http://YOUR_WFL_IP/debug to check what is going on.

Yes WU is generating ID and Key, but you have to use ID and passoword which you use to log in to WU website.
in WOW you will have ID and PIN, PIN you can change. Site ID is loiking like this: 4562c7c4-3e6b-e811-9ccb-0003febc9b2da

When you will have WOW account, then you will be able to make "Site" = weather station, It will have SiteID and you will be able to make PIN for it.
You can have multilpe sites on WOW account. In WU as well, you can have planty of weather stations ID.

After login to WOW, go to MY SITES, then when you have you site info, click blue buttin EDIT SITE. Scroll down and you will find "Authentication Key", this is you PIN, just set it up then pasted to WiFiLogger.

Probably. I have working account and Site and I don't remember how it was when was fresh, but yes you need to have this authentication key.

WiFiLoggerSetup is only to establish connection with your router. To disable it you have to reboot WFL (white button, or SYSTEM and REBOOT button) You have to disable SETUP mode to start sending data by WFL.
Before disabling WiFiLoggerSetup mode, please go to SETUP| Network info, where you will be able to find new IP assigned by your router. Using this new IP you can connect from devices in router range. Laptop, phone, even TV, but inside same home network (WiFi is part of home network, home network contains also cable connections)

Even if all you have made right WU needs some time for new ID. Set interval to 5 min and please wait an hour.
Check once more if ID is ok and you have used WU web password istead of station KEY

:) I fogot to write you that you have to switch mode to enable on every service you like to send data to. This is simple switch on/off
mode: enable
ID - your new id
pass - web WU pass
interval 5 min

wait for sime time, about hour

When configuring WU do you need to put a URL?

I feel like I am doing something wrong there!

No URL is inside firmware. You need to have only active station on WU with ID, password for WU web and should work, only new ID need some time to start logging.
