Ok, it all works, but it would behoove YeeLight to create an online, down-to-Earth trouble shooting PDF, or make a sticky on this forum.
I tried Pixel C, iPad, and nothing would work on the Singapore server, no devices added after detecting and adding!
My Android phone, using YEELIGHT app, picked up the Yeelight LED strip wifi broadcast immediately using the SIngapore server. So now Alex works.
I figured out the reset myself, maybe it was buried in the 4 lines of the manual? Unplug, hold power while powering up until LEDs cycle through Rainbow effect and you will have cleared the device and blinking yellow again.
