Same issue. Hue bridge not found!!! Does not work with Siri!! Help!!RoanGuestMay 5, 2018 at 9:01 pmPost count: 642
I have the same problem..
I bought Starter Kit 1 month ago plus some interrupters and extra lights. I could setup it well via the app and control everything pretty well from my local network.
My problem is when I try to link my bridge to my account. I always receive a message that “There are no bridges on your network.”.
– From my APP I can control the bridge
– I can see that my bridge has the Interned light showing as threre is connection – it is on, not blinking.
– I have accessed https://www.meethue.com/api/nupnp and I receive  as response;
– I have checked if UPnP is enabled on my router. It is.
– I have checked with third part SW to guarantee UPnP is enabled. It is.
– I have made a factory reset.
– I have tried to connect the bridge to Philips account via app (ios) and via my desktop PC;
– I can ping my bridge from my desktop;
– I have setup my bridge with DHCP or static IP, no difference made.
I am out of ideas. Could you send me some tips, please?TomGuestMay 12, 2018 at 3:56 pmPost count: 642
I have exact the same problem.
And no ideas, support also not a real helps.
I have a fritzbox 7590
Tried Switching all WLAN Networks on and off in every possible Configuration.
And i already tried 3 different Bridges…
Maybe someone can help please;)Delvin BonillaGuestMay 13, 2018 at 6:33 pmPost count: 642
Why the fuck has Phillips not responded yet. I’ve been having this problem for a couple months now. Every time I try to link the Hue all it does is flash the 3rd light and the link button and nothing happens. Like what is ya fucking problem, no support either in this situation your FAQ doesn’t have this scenario nor does the manual explain what to do if this fucking happens. Now, what do we do? 2 days before I contact corporate.CourtneyGuestJune 12, 2018 at 7:47 amPost count: 642
I’m having issues also.
I can control the lights from my phone without an issue. It’s only when I try to **Add a Bridge** from https://account.meethue.com/bridge does it not work.
Annoyingly, I know it just wants to know the ID and IP, which I can provide if it would let me. I have been trying to forge the json response that is requested, but unsuccessfully.
Perhaps Philips could add an option to add a bridge from the App since the App can see the Bridge.M.R. GOPALAKRISHNANGuestJune 18, 2018 at 6:46 amPost count: 642

Could anybody have got solution for tiANTOINE LEWISGuestJune 30, 2018 at 3:24 pmPost count: 642
So, I had the same issue. I was receiving the Hue bridge not found error. All three lights were lit, and I had tried hard reset. I was at my wits end. The way I ultimately resolved the issue was simply unplugging the bridge from the router and plugging it directly into the modem. Try this and I hopes it helps.Rico SuaveGuestJuly 4, 2018 at 10:56 amPost count: 642
Cannot connect to bridge! Tried everything suggested at your website. No luck. Firmware is good, wifi is good, bridge will not connect. Tried facory reset, no luck. Google assistant will not connect with bridge. Bridge has power light, network light, but no internet light. Should work, but no luck either home or away. Does bridge need replaced? Is Hue performing maintenance? Is ther firmware fix? No answers from support! No response from support!Michaele JaimeGuestJuly 5, 2018 at 11:04 amPost count: 642
I have connected to my computer, but am unable to connect to my phone. Furthermore on my computer I cannot seem to find the controls to turn the lights on or off remotely.Steve GoryanGuestJuly 26, 2018 at 6:35 pmPost count: 642
I just read that this requires another app – and it costs 52 bucks! It’s the Hue Bridge – you have to have it or the damn light doesn’t work. This one was free with the purchase of my Echo. The light’s going in the trash and I’ll be buying another product going forward. Good thing it was free. If I’d paid for it then found out I had to buy another $50.00 product to make it work… money grubbing companies.Russell DominiqueParticipantAugust 29, 2018 at 2:20 amPost count: 1
I found a solution to my problem with “bridge not found.” It turns out that you cannot connect your cell phone to your router access point using a WIFI connection configured with guest privileges; it must be a link with full privileges.tcsmitalaParticipantDecember 2, 2018 at 9:51 amPost count: 1
After a lot of head banging, I found a solution. In my case, the bridge connected no problem and was able to control the lights as required, the problem was with connecting to the meethue account, it kept saying ‘no bridge found’. Clearly the bridge was there but there was something preventing the cloud hue account from recognizing the bridge. I found that downloading the hue-sync app from the hue webpage and installing that on a computer on the network has solved the problem. It was able to go through the ‘click the button to authorize’ step that had been missing when trying to connect with a mobile device. Once connected through the hue-sync program on my Windows computer on the same network, I was then able to finalize the connection to meethue.com through the hue app on my adroid s8. Best of luck to you!Tom seibelParticipantJanuary 16, 2019 at 12:23 pmPost count: 1
I had the same problem, i was able to control the lights via the App. Trying to Connect to my Hue i always got: There is no bridge on the Network. https://www.meethue.com/api/nupnp only gave the Empty brackets…
Now i found out that my internet-provider disabled static ip’s in our region.
Now i’m paying for static IP by my Provider and Everything is working fine.
Setting static ip in the Router before did not solve the problem.
So maybe check your providers service concerning the IP
