  • Updated 1 year ago
I've installed my 5-in-1 Model 06037M  and it works great. I would like to buy a bridge so I can view the Acu-Rite remotely. However our router is in rack with all our technology and we are completely wireless with robust Wifi. Can I connect by wifi? If not, no way to use the bridge. Thanks for the help

Don as of now the bridge plugs into the router , they do have a new system coming out in a few weeks not sure if wifi is part of it. If you have a pc connect unit and a pc you can leave on at all times you can do it that way I think.

The bridge does not use wifi.  As far as I know, there is no wifi bridge coming out in the immediate future.

However, there are devices out there you can use to make a wired ethernet device connect to a wireless network.  For example, the TP=Link wireless travel routers can do this if placed in the correct configuration.

Here's a snip describing their "clinet" mode.  The AcuLink bridge will work just as a TV or game console would.  Click on the snip below to see a larger, readable version.

Hello All,

We do not have an AcuLink Internet Bridge that has WiFi at this time.  The bridge has to plug directly into the router by an Ethernet Cable.  If you have any questions please feel free to ask here or AcuRite Customer Support at 877-221-1252.  Thank you and have a great day!

I have the bridge connected with an ethernet cable, just like you say. But how is it receiving the signals from the 5n1 weather station? 802.11? or what?
