I cannot connect to my bridge. In a matter of fact, my iPhone doesn’t even see the bridge. Anybody with the same issue?
Quick test – click this: https://www.meethue.com/api/nupnp – if the connection is alright you should see something like this

Still looking for a solution, I downloaded and installed the “Lamp Finder for MAC” application (http://philipshue.com/lamp-finder-for-mac/), which required me to first install 414Mb of Oracle Java 10. Grmbl! Not really sure why I did this. Getting desperate.
As all three light on the bridge are ON, and only the Hue App seems to be unable to connect ( and yes: both are on the same WiFi network, the bridge has privileged un-routed acces directly into the WiFi, the above check from Steve (https://www.meethue.com/api/nupnp) gives me the correct internal IP address, heck, when I enter the address in a browser, it seemlessly connects me to a page with technical software details, and open source license files/sites. Still – see bottom of photograph : “Connecting …”
I had the same issue, all 4 lights solid ON, upnp test shown correct bridge IP even I can register my bridge to philips cloud server and also returning the bridge and got exchanged another bridge, still problem “Hue Bridge not Found” from iOS apps persist.
Then I tried the very basic network trouble shooting, ping the bridge ip (ethernet) from the wifi net and found “request time out” no matter what device I plugged into that ethernet. The culprit was the modem/router I got from ISP applies AP isolation (guest network) prohibiting connectivity from wifi to ethernet although both are on the same network and same DHCP, even worst my ISP reject to turn-off this AP isolation as they said it was because of the firmware out of their control.
So I put my own wifi router for all devices, only use ISP device as router to Internet and voila! It worked.
