you need to allow sharing for your access connection, and fill in your station id and the password / station key password worked for me.   If it still shows your smarthub you need to un share it if its still on you can only share one.

Ledrak,

After struggling to get Access working, Jimmy Laursen has returned to PC Connect and is sending to WU at IWALLACE2
https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=IWALLACE2

So he has the basics of how to get to WU down, just issues with making Access send there.
On another thread, he has posted a MyAcuRite screenshot which shows two sharing setups, both attempting to share data from a 5n1. One seems to have an incorrect WU station ID (IWALLCE2), and that was noted by George.

Jimmy :

For starters, I would advise deleting that share setup. Then get Access going again, replacing  PC Connect with Access in Enable Online Sharing.

Next, get into your Access internal web page and post a screenshot. Let's see what's there. You will have to locate the IP address assigned to your Access, and put that IP address into your browser.

Finally, don't sell yourself short. This stuff is maybe not as simple as it should be.

John as you know not knowing what else that has been done is the hardest part.  I see that Acurite has now posted on their site for support some better directions, they needed to get them out in the open for people to find.

Jimmy,

Once you get MyAcuRite to properly pass your WU credentials to Access, your Access device will start sending to WU automatically. You will not need a new WU account, or have to make any changes to your existing WU account. Once Access has the proper credentials loaded in, it should just pick right up and go. Viewing the Access internal web page is a good way to see if those WU credentials have been correctly dropped into Access.

Hello Jim,
We apologize for the delay in response. I believe I was able to locate an account for you under a different email address. Are you located in Southwestern Manitoba (Virden)?  I can see the Access has been added and updating. Please let us know if we are mistaken or if you have any questions.  Thank you.
