I have been trying for hours to set up my Mi Bedside Lamp I got yesterday, but everytime I want to add it to the app, it says that the connection timed out. It connects fine to the wifi, but does not seem to be able to communicate with the app.
By capturing my network traffic I discovered that the lamp is communicating with the server at 188.8.131.52, but my phone talks to different servers. I assume I have selected the wrong region in my phone? Is there a way to find out which region this server belongs to?
I have tried everything from different phones, different wifi networks (both, dsl and mobile hotspots), different DNS servers, different regions (not yet all of them), different app versions. I am running out of ideas…

Edit: Problem solved! Turns out the lamp was still running on an old firmware. After using an older account as described in Connection timeout issue I was able to add the device and update the firmware. Afterwards I could add it to my own account.
