If it is not too much trouble, would someone mind explaining how to switch from password access to API access? I see how to generate an API but I do not see where to enter it into my settings.

In the weather software you use there should be a section for WUnderground uploading. It includes a password field. Just change that to your current API key.
That can be found by logging on to your WU account, choose Devices and you should see a key value. Replace your password with that key.

Do NOT generate a new API key.

Thank you for the help! I upload to WU with a WifiLogger 1st gen v2.38. There is no password field per se, but the there is a "station key" field. My current setup just requires entering station key as assigned by WU into that field. I have now attempted to enter my new API key into that field and, so far, it does not appear to be working. Have I done something incorrect?

I change the pass in both VWS and Cumulus and it now works again. I wonder if this is a permanent change...

Well on mine it got the number back but things were still not updating like wind speed. So I change it back to the old password and it not right I give up till they fix it..

Sorry I canít really help with a WI-FI logger. When you say NEW api key you should be using the original, not a new one. Do you have a record of your original?

Thank you Ray. I generated a new API because in the years and years I've been uploading to WU I've never used an API - password access only.

NOW - I decided to go back and re-enter my old station ID as issued by WU years ago and magically my station came back on the air. But honestly WU has been so unreliable for a number of days now that I don't have much faith in it right now. Hopefully that will change. I appreciate your help!

@Gulfstream4. Youíre welcome. We can both remember the good old days when you could edit erroneous data. How I long for that to return.

Yeah the good old days of WU are truly missed. It was the go to place for PWS people. I loved when we could upload photos and view them from all over the world.

F.Y.I. my station stopped uploading around 11:30 am CDT yesterday 9/21. I appears to be uploading/displaying (now) all the data it's capable of.

I have been using the "Key" since advised a few years back. I have some spotty Rapid Fire lately but never went off-line other than a half day or so. No action carried out on my part, just starts up again.

Hmmm. Say this is new now. Wind speed and gust graphs actually show real looking data now. Before the graph was nonsensical and gusts basically matched wind speed peaks.

Went for crap now. Graphs look like garbage and it's right out now.

No doubt there could be relation to Acurite stations being basically off-line lately.
