We have a new La Crosse weather station that connects to our WiFi and phone app.  I registered the station on Weather Underground and it advised me to add the ID and password to my software.  The instructions from La Crosse told me the software is a phone app called Weather Connect.  Weather Connect will not recognize my router and therefore I can't complete the connection.  Are there any alternative softwares I can use to accomplish this goal?  TIA.

If it's not a Boerboel it's just a dog.

Yes, you can use Meteobridge if your station is any one of these models.

La Crosse/ELV: WS-2300
La Crosse/ELV: WS-300-PC
La Crosse/ELV: WS-300-PC-2
La Crosse/ELV: WS-300-PC-US
La Crosse/ELV: WS-444
La Crosse/ELV: WS-500
La Crosse/ELV: WS-550-Technoline
La Crosse/ELV: WS-550-US
La Crosse/ELV: WS-550-2-US
La Crosse/ELV: WS-777
La Crosse/ELV: WS-888

But probably not, because I believe these I listed are all USB cable models and you have a WiFi model. You didn't tell us what you have.

I believe you need to get the unit online and reporting to WU. There is no other software to use until that is operational. Once that is operational you can look at the possibility of using WeeWX via intercepting WU packets. Don't waste you time looking at WeeWX now. You have to get the station working with the manufacture's software first.

Make sure your phone is only connected to 2.4 and not the 5 . I would shut of data ( 3.g 4.g )  on your phone also just to make sure .  IMPORTANT: • When trying to establish your station’s Wi-Fi connection, be sure your mobile device is on the same 2.4GHz   network you want your station to use. Check the Wi-Fi settings on your mobile device.• During setup, weather station and mobile device must be in close proximity.• Weather station must be powered with power cord for the Wi-Fi to work

Moving this to the LaCrosse board on this forum. This is not a Weather Underground issue.
