Hi!

Quote
can GW1000 and GW2000 connect to the same WiFi router at the same time?
I did not test this yet but why not?
Here are 2 GW1000, 1 GW1100 a HP3501 and a HP2551 all in the same WIFI.
Where do you expect problems?

I can't imagine there being an issue, network protocol just doesn't work that way.

This works without problems (in my case).

Thanks...I was just curious if anyone has had any issues.

Yes. You can connect as many of each as you want and each will have a unique IP address.

Setup a /16 subnet and help yourself to up to 65,534 devices. I think, for all practical purposes, that qualifies as unlimited.

Why so humble ?   :?:  Only /16 ...  :roll: I'm disappointed  :shock:- why not /12 or /8 ??  (even though usual private subnets are /24 and "bigger" number = smaller).

Hi!

In fact, I ran into serious problems recently with my DHCP range of 55 addresses (I work a lot with static addresses). Precisely because no more free address was available!
Unfortunately, I can not assign a static address with the Ecowitt devices - so I had to increase my DHCP range significantly.
But I also only use a 24 network here. Time for change?
;-)

The DHCP range was one issue I ran into when pairing a GW1000/WH2650 console; the console wouldn't pair as it wouldn't receive an IP address from the DHCP server in the router - but this range can be changed. 252 addresses in a 255.255.255.0 (or /24) subnet (255 - standard addresses for gateway(s), broadcast etc.) should be enough in most private networks and the DHCP range can be set from e.g. 150-250, usually enough for devices which need an IP address via DHCP. The new GW2000 can finally have a static IP assigned. [tup]

Nice!
Thanks for info and thanks to LAN-port!
Or is the WIFI port also configurable to static address?

Running into a problem with GW2000 is uploading to Ecowitt.net but the app keeps switching IP addresses 192.168.1.4 to 192.168.1.00. Do I need to change the default gateway IP address in the GW2000 setup page in order to be able to talk to the GW2000 via the app?
Update: I got it working by changing the default gateway IP address.

Thanks,
tweatherman

first rain-data show a massive underestimate but i'm to be honest ...so far I have not seen a single installation done well. To test the rain gauges they must be on the same level and not in different positions and with a good manual rain gauge as reference.

maybe you are blind  #-o - or didn't look properly  ;) - my installation is WS90 and WH40 levelled and at the same height above ground, and I have two manual rain gauges in place.
I posted a picture of the WH40/WS90 setup - and commented that the picture perspective might give the idea that they are not at the same level - but they are.
So I think I'm well set.

Maybe it's the Italian English  ;) - you might want to explain what exactly you mean by "installation done well" (or not done well). Do you mean "set up" or do you mean the performance of the rain gauges ...

Hey, thats my data! :shock: ;)

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
I summarized it in one graph. As you can see, the WS90 'misses' quit a lot of rain (dark blue is WS90, light blue is WH40 as a reference). IMO it isn't sensitive enough (WH40: 1.9mm, WS90: 1.0mm).

in my current situation, temperatures around the freezing point, and a slight drizzle, my WS90 shows 0.3 mm rainfall while the WH40 shows nothing - probably frozen.

I just climbed up and made a visual check:
there is a little ice lump at the of the debris protection spiral. Also, the surface of the funnel is covered by tiny droplets which will probably evaporate in the wind before forming a bigger drop and can be counted.

Looks like this situation is managed better by the WS90 than by the WH40. A few days ago in stronger drizzle the WS90 and the WH40 came up with the same result (0.7 mm) at the end of the day, but the distribution over time was very different for both sensors.

https://www.ecowitt.net/home/index?id=27607 - HP2551 + WH40
https://www.ecowitt.net/home/index?id=73231 - GW2000 + WS90


At a third occasion the WS90 underperformed by a few 1/10 of mm.

Stronger and longer rain didn't occur yet.
Also not strong and very strong rain where the WH40 starts underperforming significantly.

presumably a solution night be a situation where each corrects for the other depending on the context?

So where would that algorithm be? Within ecowitt net?

Haha I don't need to update you guys anymore. Giuseppe does all the work =D>

For anyone interested, I made a page where all measurements of the WS90 are compared to the other sensors (WH32 temp/hum and WS40 rain and WS80 wind):
https://www.weerstationmarsdijk.nl/ws90beta.php (for the graps from 0.00 AM till now)
https://www.weerstationmarsdijk.nl/ws90beta.php?interval=24 (for 24 hour lookback)
