Connect GW1100 through wireless extender
« on: January 26, 2023, 08:33:11 PM »
I can't see my wireless router which is in the garage ( I use  2 X wireless extender in the house )
Is there no problem connecting GW1100 through the wireless extender

you mean you cannot find the SSID of your wireless network in the GW2000 ?
When you put your GW2000 close(r) to your WLAN access point (your wireless router) until you can connect the the wireless network, can it still receive the sensor data ?
If so, place it close(r) to the WLAN router.  :-)

Sorry the routers in the Garage and I donít get a very strong signal in the lounge thatís why I have a wireless extender setup halfway between the garage and lounge . Iíve connected the gw1100 up in the lounge and connected to the wifi extender now . Itís just the construction of the house which is 420 square metres and the Garage being at the far end , just want to have a play with it now as I use to have a 1 wire weather station connected to weather display etc Ö the author lives locally and Iíve known him for 30 years

Weather Display also supports the Ecowitt Gateway API (used by GW1000, GW1100, GW2000, WN19x0, WH26500 consoles).
It only needs to run inside the same local network where your console (GW1100) is connected to.
To which router/access point you connect your GW1100 is immaterial (as long as it is inside the same local network as WD). You just have to make sure that the gateway receives your sensor (array) data and is connected to the local network.
If the GW1100 receives teh sensor signal also in your garage, you can place your GW1100 there.
