Hi everyone, I am just searching for someone who can help as I am not all that technologically savoy!! I have a Davis Vantage Pro 2 weather station and a data logger ( ? 6555). My console is connected to the internet based Weatherlink.com from Davis and the data then cav be viewed and downloaded to my computer via Weatherlink 6.0.3 ext. Everything was going well until Davis updated their weatherlink site to 2.0 and now there is no data transfer. I have e-mailed Davis but they have sent me back some technological jargon I don't understand it at all but I have an " API token" which somehow can help? Can anyone out there using a Davis weather instrument and data logger please help?

Hi MGD,

I to have the 6555 and have migrated over to 2.0 without any problems.

Do you download your data to the weatherlink software via "web download" option below?



If so(like was the case with me) you have to change your userID to your DID which is the top number on the sticker on the IP device connected to the console.

Yes I use the Web Download option. When you day user ID. Are you referring to the user ID when logging into Weatherlink 2.0 ? Did you keep your password the same? Thanks for the above information.

Yes password stays the same, you just need to change the web download UserID in the weatherlink software on you PC to data loggers DID number. If you look at the data logger connected to the console there should be a sticker on the side with your DID and KEY numbers, once you've done that you should be able to download your data again.

I knew because I had to do the same myself. I also received an email from Davis weeks ago telling me this also.

Glad it worked for you.

cheers

I recently set up meteobridge router with davis vantage pro2. Already had weatherlink on PC. Managed to last a week and now on Wunderground its like I don't exist..its not wunderground as other PWS are on in the area. For some reason at 7.26 today I stopped being online.

Waiting for wife to get back home and check if weatherlink has died as well or if its just the upload.

LAN, stops after 24 hours now.

Getting this message when I try and log in to weatherlink which was working 10 mins ago

"Function to retrieve data through TCP/IP protocol from the device timed out"

If I then test it I get "Cannot establish connection since port is already in use. Please disconnect the device and connect it again"

No Weastherlink display and no upload to WU. If I hit reset button on meteobridge (which visually looks fine) it will all work for another 24 hours. OR I can do that via the login to IP address of meteobridge.

Just flummoxed as to why it worked for just over a week..
