Hi forum.  I have purchased the La Crosse C83100 from Costco a few weeks ago and I have it up and running except for the  online registration with Weather Underground.  I realize that this is a cheap consumer unit but I would like to try this out.

I have tried using the iOS WeatherConnect app but it cannot connect to the PWS no matter what I try.  This PWS is on a 2.4GHz standard wireless network and is working with the other La Crosse View app.

Is there a manual way of registering these units with Wunderground other than the crappy out-of-date iOS app?  Thanks in advance.

Do you have a WU account?

Just a thought... Maybe borrow a friend's Android phone to set it up. Maybe the Android version works better.

What password are using in the app setup?  WU or station ID.

In the WeatherConnect app I click the "set Device Wi-Fi" button and receive the prompt for "Router password" and enter the wi-fi password and it fails.  I am not getting to the point where I enter the PWS/Wunderground info.

On the other post - most of my friends have Apple devices.  Tonight I will see if my BlueStacks/PC "Android" can run the WeatherConnect app....I will keep you posted.

BTW not all La Crosse stations can upload to WU,  make sure yours can.

Use your computer to log into your WiFi router. Then disable or turn off the 5 GHz WiFi band. Then try and connect your station. After the station is online then go back to the router with your computer and turn the 5 GHz band back on.

I'm wondering if you made any progress on this. I have the same unit and the same issue, almost. I was able to get the wifi password to be accepted - make sure you turn off your 5ghz radio in your wifi access point. Then, after you type your password in the app, but before you hit "confirm", hit the plus and minus buttons on top of the C83100's large display for about 3 seconds until the wifi icon starts to flash.

Once you do that, hit "confirm" and a few seconds later "Success!" will appear, but if it does what mine does, it returns you to the main menu.

I'm getting ready to return this to Costco; I had read somewhere that this model did work with the app and that allowed it to connect to WU, but I haven't been able to get it to work. :(
