Philips Hue: Bridge Not Found, Connecting to the Repeater Router


  1. Power
  2. LAN
  3. Internet


When connected to the repeater router the Hue app still couldn't find the Bridge and sometimes shows only 2 lamps lit though the internet is up.


  1. Find the MAC address of the Bridge: Philips Hue Mac Address In this example: EC:B5:FA:3F:35:89
  2. Add the IP address reservation by MAC in router's DHCP settings, this ensures the Bridge will always get the same IP: Philips Hue IP Reservation
  3. Reboot the Bridge, so that it gets the static IP assigned
  4. Manually enter the IP of the Bridge in the Hue app

Additionally the Bridge can be factory-reset by pressing a button behind the device.
