Hi, Could you have a try with below:

1、Get IP address with command “ping”, it is like “” (Use for Singapore server, for US server, for Germany server and for Mainland china server);
2、Setup a local DNS server with your PC (You can use tool of simple dns), add an “A record” with the IP address you get from Step 1 associate to “”;
3、Modify DNS server of your router to the dns server you have setup in Step 2;
4、Reset the bulb and try to connect again to see if it works.

Hi Andy,

I have the connection timeout issue with my MI desk lamp and the account works for me. However even after updating the lamp’s firmware my account still cannot register the lamp and the error is still connection timeout. I am currently using account but would like to be able to use my own account. Please help.

Thanks for you feedback.

Which server do you select in Yeelight application? And please try again and tell the time you tried with your account, we will check log to see what’s going on.

Hi Andy,

I am using the Singapore server and I tried it multiple times within the hour of my previous post

Hi Andy,

Works great now. Very thankful for your quick responses and help. Appreciate it!


G’day Andy,

My account number is much less than that number, and all my Yeelight devices were successfully added to my Xiaomi “Mijia” app. Thanks so much for working on this and finding a fix for the Yeelight devices.

Now, even though all theYeelight devices connected fine, my Xiaomi MI Control Hub gateway device has the same issue as before - it gets an IP but cannot connect fully with the app. So I’ve now got my lights working, but no door sensors, occupancy sensors, temp/humidity sensors nor buttons to easily control the Yeelights.

Any ideas on how to get the gateway connected? (I also tried logging in with the lixin account and it had the same issue - failed at the same place.)

This trick onlys apply for Mi LED Desk lamp, this is a bug we found in last release. As for device of Mi Control Hub, I have no idea about it, I saw your post before about the issue. And you have tried ways I known but that doesn’t works. This is not made by Yeelight, maybe you can contact them who made Mi Control Hub for help.

Hi Yeelight Support,
Can you please help me connecting to Yeelight LED Striplight using Wifi?
I have already tried using [] Login to connect and update the software.
Nothing works, I am getting Timed Out Error each time.

[Connection timeout issue](See here as stated above)

I have this same issue, connection time error. I try with hotspot 4g. I update lightstrip to latest firmware and its worked but after 10-15min lightstrip is disconnect and in yeelight app offline status. In my router I see lightstrip in DHCP. I have ten yeelight bulbs and all works correct but lightstrip not.
Please help.

Thanks a lot for ‘excellent’ not helping… This is my last purchase of yeelight stuff. From my site its all works but from yeelight is not and support is not helping customers.
