Looking for a little Bud Red Light help myself.
We recently upgraded our home network to dual band 2.4/5 GHz, and since then I’ve been unable to connect my light. I’ve been only trying to connect to the 2.4 band. After fighting with it, I eventually got a flashing green light…but test goal alerts sent from my phone didn’t set my light off. Eventually, the flashing green light gave way to flashing orange. Turning the light off then back on gave me flashing green again, but again the test goal alerts did nothing, and again I got flashing orange again a short time later.
Budweiser sent out two other IMP cards for me to try, but they didn’t work either. Eventually, Budweiser sent me a brand new light (with a built-in IMP card) and the same thing is happening. I contacted my ISP and they changed one setting on my network (don’t know what it was) which didn’t fix the problem. They confirmed that my light’s MAC address showed up on my network, so it seems like it was connected. But, outside of the one change they made (which did nothing), they said there was nothing else they could do.
I finally took my light to a different network and it blinked up perfectly the first time and goal alerts from my phone set the light off. So, clearly my light works and it’s my network settings and/or hardware at home that is causing the problems. Everything else connects on my home wifi network without any problem: TV’s, iPhones, iPads, computers etc. I just cannot get my Bud Red Light to connect.
So, at this point, I’m guessing/hoping that there is some setting I can tweak on my router to get my BRL connected, but I have no idea where to start. Any ideas anyone?
