Alright guys. I have (what I believe) is a relatively unique situation I need assistance with. I have a substantial amount of Phillips Hue products that I recently had installed in an apartment. I am currently living in a RV Camper while my significant other and I search from a home.
I knew I needed a wired connection to run the Hue Bridge so I purchased a [URL=”https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EY11K40/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1″]MOFI4500-4GXeLTE-SIM4-COMBO 4G/LTE Router[/URL] on amazon. That was actually MUCH more of a pain in my a$$ to get setup than I anticipated. Had to drop it off at a local Verizon store and it took them about 3 hours with their tech support to work through whatever the hell the needed to work through. Bottom-line is that I now have internet connection AND a router that I can hook up RJ-45 network connections to. I thought that would be good enough for this particular situation.
My Amazon Fire Cube is working perfectly via wired connection through the router. However, when I attempt to connect my Hue Bridge and Hue lights, I keep getting this error:
[B]”Could not download the update. Make sure you are connected to your home Wi-Fi network.”[/B]
Ok, I guess my question is… How do I get around this? Is there some way to trick the app into recognizing my current router (which is 4G LTE) as a “Home Wi-Fi Network?”
Does it have anything to do with needing a static IP address for my Router?
Can anyone help this idiot turn his RV into a smart RV?
