Configuration for Cisco Meraki

Please be sure to confirm which environment your dashboard is on. If your dashboard was created before 2/13/2020 you will use US-A settings. Dashboards created after will need to use US-B settings.
Please contact support if you need help confirming your environment.

Before configuring your device, please be sure that you have added the Gateway to the Smart WiFi Platform and associated it with a Hotspot.
ADD GATEWAY
ADD HOSPOT

  15. Then ‘Save changes”The additional steps below are OPTIONAL. If you don;t perform these extra steps then you may get a notification in your e-mail everyday from Cisco. We recommend not performing these extra steps and just turning off the notification by following these steps (from Cisco support dept): If you do not want to open the path to your RADIUS server from the Meraki cloud address (x.x.x.x), you could just turn off notifications. The way to do this would be to remove your email address from the notification section of Network-wide > General > Network alerts > Send alerts via email to:
  16. You may also need to create some firewall rules in the Meraki Dashboard (To stop some alerts from coming into your e-mail) although this is not required for the Smart WiFi Services and splash pages to function:
    firewall_2
  17. Add the following entries to this area:
    Allow UDP: 52.23.46.139/32 Port 1812
    Allow UDP: 52.23.46.139/32 Port 1813
    Allow UDP: 52.207.192.243/32 Port 1812
    Allow UDP: 52.207.192.243/32 Port 1813
  18. You will need those ports open from your primary ISP router as well.
