La Crosse View App: How do I find the Weather Connect Wi-Fi Network during App setup?
Part of the Wi-Fi configuration process includes instructions to “temporarily leave the App” and go to the Wi-Fi Setting of the mobile device (phone) to select the “Weather Connect” Wi-Fi network. This is a temporary Wi-Fi network also known as an Access Point. This step will establish a connection between the mobile device (phone) running the App and the Weather Display for the purpose of programming the Weather Display with the SSID (network name) and the password required to sign into the home Wi-Fi network. The temporary network name of the Weather Display will be “Weather Connect_XXXXXX” where the “XXXXXX” are the numbers and/or letters of your individual Weather Display’s ID number.
NOTE: Sometimes, the Weather Connect network will not display it's name immediately and will instead show as an Open Hidden Network. If you click on that network to connect it will then show the Weather Connect name and the process can continue from there.
The iOS and Android App rules will not allow us to link directly to the Wi-Fi Settings of your phone or switch it automatically, so you need to do these additional steps as the user. The method to do this will vary slightly depending on if you are using an iOS or Android device.
