Looks like I fixed it by bumbling about. I lugged the DSL modem and associated cords downstairs and plugged it directly into the laptop connected to the weather console, and it saw the console! Worked perfectly. But, no wifi adapter on the upstairs computer so I had to take it all back up and reconnect it (spouse uses that computer). But, having once 'seen' whatever it saw it is now transferring as it is supposed to even though it's back on wifi. I don't really get it, but I'm happy.
