    IP Address Questions?

    Post by KPHume » Mon 03 Jun 2019 8:13 pm

    Hi all,

    We just moved into a new house and have a whole new internet connection, router, etc. Everything. Our station has been offline for a few weeks.

    I have hooked our Vantage Vue up to the router and everything looks good except that I can not find the IP address to configure Cumulus. Tons of searching and memory recollection have not yielded any results. I have even gone through all the IP addresses listed and nothing will connect.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    TIA!!

    So, I figured out the IP issue only to find another issue.....

    I can not see my weather station from Cumulus. The CAT 5 cable from the base station to the router is good. I have tested it.

    Any ideas?

    Windows firewall blocking it? Try switching the firewall off and see if you can see it. Try pinging it from the PC using a Command prompt if you now know the IP address.

    You could try an IP scanner to see all devices on your network.

    I use 'Advanced IP Scanner' (its free!)

    I think I got it.

    Funny, I had to change the buad rate to 19,200 (per Davis support) and everything magically started working.

    File this away for future knowledge.
