Connecting a WiFi Display to Your WiFi Service

Pair the sensor and the display per the manual's instruction. Confirm the display is maintaining 4 bars of signal strength.

Have the WU Station ID and Station Key/Password with your WiFi Network Name and WiFi Network Password handy. 

From a computer, (you can use a smartphone or tablet but this works best from a computer) Open the network tab and click on the AcuRite WiFi Display Model Number.

Troubleshooting Steps 

If you do not see the display model under your network tab, please reset the display by pressing and holding the RESET button for 10 seconds, located in the battery compartment of the display. Date and time will need to be entered after a reset.

If you are unable to open the AcuRite Wi-Fi display settings website after connecting to the display, disconnect from the display under the network tab, open a different internet browser, enter The IP address 192.168.4.1 into the URL but DO NOT PRESS ENTER. Connect to the display under the network tab and wait 20 seconds before clicking enter on the internet browser with the IP address entered. 

  1. Ensure the network name (SSID) and password you've entered are correct. NOTE: Both network name and password are case sensitive.
  2. Make sure DHCP is enabled on your router. Most routers have DHCP enabled by default.
  3. Ensure your router is broadcasting a 2.4 GHz network. The weather station display is equipped with a Wi-Fi module that only supports 2.4 GHz wireless networks.
