I replaced my router and reconfigured my smart plugs but no matter how many times I switch on and off my bulbs they won't reset?

There is no blinking after switching on and off 3 times or 5 times. Has something changed with the latest firmware that requires a different method to reset?

Switch off the bulb first, then switch it on, wait 1-2 seconds, then switch it off, repeat 3 times or 5 times. 

 

Sometimes timing is important. If you did it real fast, slow it down; vice versa.

Exactly the same problem here. Mind you I wasn't entirely surprised that I managed to get everything working properly in minutes after changing the router EXCEPT for the Kasa bulbs.

I might be confusing them with another set of bulbs, but if I remember correctly if the bulbs have already been reset they won't blink if you do it again - it might be worth double checking whether the bulb is already broadcasting it's setup SSID.

I too have the same problem. But, even after trying to reset (switch on/off 5 times), the light won't blink. Is there anything else i can do?
