Thanks for the confirmation!

My bridge is annoying me - I am able to use it as an AP to connect to my RGBW bulbs, but it is unable to connect to my wifi network. (Neither the SSID or password uses strange characters besides a-z and 0-9.) Trying to set it up on a PC, Android and an iPhone yields no results either. Poop!

I wonder if anyone's come across a similar problem?

So close yet so far!

I had problems with mine because it is only a G device, and I had the AP's all set to N only (called greenfield on one of them) so it didnt work.

I put a stuffed old G accesspoint near it (stuffed as in the RF output is burnt out so it is only one bar when you are right beside it) and made it use that so I didnt have to allow G on the rest of my network.

Ahh nice - I had mistakenly thought that the Mixed Mode option in my router would work with all G devices as well. Setting it to be B/G only seems to do the trick! Thanks for the suggestion - wouldn't have thought to try otherwise.

Now to look for a small wireless G only AP...

Thanks man! :D

It should work in mixed mode but with a reduction in performance for your whole network. I found changing from mixed to n only 40 me gave me a significant boost in performance even with only n devices on the network.

I don't think it's a particularly great wifi chipset in the gateways since when it was on my usual aps when range was poor compared to a phone. Had the gateway in the shed so it would reach the outdoor lights on the shed for a bit and it was giving terrible pings and not responding heaps.

vhunt3r: So I just got these and so far they are great. Anyone know of a software that can add schedule time on and off?


Did you buy the colour ones or the white ones?


I got the white ones.

Mallas: Anyone know what's up with that iOS7 bug? I'm getting the same problem with my Android phone and the new bridge that was mentioned previously in the thread.


Hi Mallas, yep its the same product.  The ios7 version is released on AppStore under v1.5 now, there are currently no known ios7 bugs. Cheers,
Hamish.
  Confirmed! iOS bug has been fixed.

We have updated our instruction manual for the new Wifi Bridge. If I con offer any more help, let me know.
http://www.wifiledlamp.com/service/manual/ If autodetection of the Wifi Box trough the APP fails there is always an option of connecting directly to the Wifi Box trough http://10.10.100.254/home.html You can switch to english on the top of the page.
Set the Box to STA and configure the STA setting for connection with your router. Save and restart.

Would be great if they added a bit more info to their dev page. I've got my white LED bulb talking to the v2 bridge but now I want to try something like tasker on android and voice control.

Their dev page talks about I but doesn't actually have a link for more info.....

Basically it is simply talking UDP packages with HEX commands.
In that way the DEV page is ultra complete.
It might not be a real platform depending API but it outlines a multi-platform supported way of working.
I don't get what you expect more from a DEV page ?
Any refined and platform bound implementation, for example like you propose with voice control, can only be noise to other users.
So the setup is good, abstract like a multi-platform command-set should be. Now you share your implementation :) ! If you like to use some NodeJS code ( platform independent) check our V2 wifi bridge api page.

Just received my order (white LEDs) - very impressed with light output (brightness & warmth range). Remote setup was super easy, but am struggling with wifi bridge (which is embarrassing given my background as a network engineer).

I'm able to connect with both the iOS app & via web interface whilst the bridge is in adhoc mode, but once I configure it for 'STA' mode & restart it, it refuses to connect to my router (telecom nz's TG582N) - what wireless interface types does the bridge support (b/g/n)? Router is in mixed mode. SSID and P/W don't use special characters.

Anyone else been able to configure bridge with this router?

I've received my Wifi Bridge v3, RGBW bulbs and remote control and it all works great. The only thing I can't figure out is how to switch the bulbs back to white using the remote control or Android/iOS apps. I've tried going through each of the party modes but there's no solid white light, the closest I've found is blinking white. The only way I've managed to get them back to white is by sending a command to the dev API on the bridge. Does anyone know how I can switch them back to white using the remote or mobile apps?

If you press and hold the power on button it should reset the lights to full white brightness. That's how I do it, anyway.

The wifi bridge 3.0 is wireless b/g
The wifi bridge 4.0 is wireless b/g/n do you have another router your could try? they both work on all the routers I've seen. one time I did see that it needed a restart of the wireless router, or set the router to wireless G only whilst you configure it to STA mode via milight ios v1.6 app.   Cheers,
Hamish.

Can the Remote Control for RGBW Colour LED bulbs control the White only LED bulb as well?

Thinking of picking 1*RGBW bulb, 2*White bulb, 1*RGBW remote and 1*WiFi receiver v4.0 bridge.

Edit - Why is the checkout charging me in USD and then adding GST on top of that? Both do not go hand in hand.
