Bridge problems after attempted upgrade to DS

I thought I upgraded the firmware in my Bridge in my PerfectWave Mk II DAC. I then inserted it in a new DirectStream. It wasn’t detected on the DS, so I removed it and put it back in the Mk II and it’s not detected there, either, and isn’t showing up on the network via Fing.

I finally got the Bridge menu to show up on the DS by using the remote. Multiple attempts at keying in a static IP failed. Now I’m resorting to another firmware upgrade attempt, and the screen on the DS has read “FINDING BRIDGE” for over an hour. I finally abort and reboot, then find the Bridge has lost its IP and reverted to DHCP. Reconfiguring a static IP finds the same thing happening - network indicator is red after saving the config, and Bridge doesn’t show up on browser or Fing.

I’ve removed the SD card and rebooted the DS and network numerous times. Still no luck.



If you can find the IP address of the bridge, you can use the web interface to upgrade the bridge to the latest firmware. Toye in the IP address into a web browser and it should display the bridges web interface.


Original IP address of Bridge isn’t working in web browser and is greyed out on Fing.

There is no web interface on the bridge II.


Update: Bridge rescue failed. I’m assuming I have a bricked Bridge. Have emailed support.
