I'm having all kinds of problems getting my router to see the IP data logger.  I want to try the USB

Who has one for sale?

What sort of problems (other than the fact that you didn't have the AC power connected)?

What router? 

Getting the router to see the WLIP is usually just a matter of plugging in the WLIP to the router. 

How are you diagnosing these problems?

What weather software programs are you running?

It's a Cisco router, it's their newest one they are using at Comcast

The weatherlink software does not find device when I type in the MAC address  - I'm sure I have a good cat5 cable and its hooked directly into the back of the Cisco modem/router, no switches or RJ45 plug in's

I'm sure I'm typing in the correct MAC address too, I had it all working but now my weatherlink software doesn't see it now.

I tried restarting router several times and restarted computer and I restarted the weatherlink software all with no luck

Led on data link is blinking


Is there a better more stable way to do all of this, its way too flakey for me, I'm not real happy with it.

What can I do to make this thing bullet proof ?     PLEASE TELL ME  :shock:

Oh.  Well, you originally said:

I'm having all kinds of problems getting my router to see the IP data logger.

So, does the router see the logger or not?  [Log into the router and find out]

Have you "fiddled" with any settings on the WLIP?

As you said, get a USB logger (as was recommended by several people in another thread).  Then you can be not real happy with something else.

Seriously, try taking things one at a time.

OK, what is your WeatherLink.Com identifier?  That would let us see if the WLIP and the VP2 are working together.

I agree with Dalecoy. You need to log into the router see if the logger is connected   and use the mac address that the logger is showing in the router. Plus if it were me I would assign the logger a dedicated ip address via the router.
