LIFX Lights rely on directed broadcasts to work correctly. Our iPhone app relies on limited broadcasts to work correctly, and our Android app relies on directed broadcasts to work correctly.

If your router, in bridge mode, filters any of those two broadcasts, then you will not be able to connect to the bulb.

If this is the case for your network, you may need to reconfigure the network, so that your Wi-Fi router is providing DHCP leases, not the the internet modem from your service provider.
