No PC is needed.  It's just a matter of setting up the Access by entering the proper information in myAcurite.

Once myAcurite has your wunderground information, it will be pushed down to the Access, then the Access will report directly to wunderground on its own.

You can find info on setting up wunderground here: https://kbase.myacurite.com/web/content/share-follow/share-weather-underground.htm?Highlight=weather...

If you don't have a wunderground station ID yet, you'll need to set one up on wunderground first.  They don't need to know anything about your Access... just general info about where your station is located, elevation, etc. etc.

To set up on myAcurite, you'll need to know the wunderground station ID you were given and the "key" assigned to it.  The "key" is basically just a specific password for that wunderground station ID.

Assuming you're using myAcurite from a web browser, selecting "settings" from the upper right corner of the window, then go down to "share weather".

You should then have a screen like below.  First you'll want to make sure sharing is enabled, then go down to the wunderground section and press "add" so you can add your wunderground info.

That blue dot is confusing.  It's there to select what you want to edit.

So it looks like you now have two entries.  I'd guess one is for the Access, the other for the SmartHUB.

It does look like one of the station names is in error.  myAcurite won't let you report two devices to the same station ID.  I'm not sure which of the two is correct.

George I want to thank you for all your help with the accurite acess but I’m not very computer smart so hopefully accurite will post instruction for dummies for the acess

I checked the second listing you have and it looks like there is a weather station reporting.
