I've been a Meraki MX user since Nov '14 and I think it's a great product but it lacked a community for it's users to collaborate on the direction we want the product to go in with new features. I want this to get the attention of Meraki and hopefully they'll join us in implementing these features.

1/4/16 Update: Meraki has begun responding to various posts!

Right now this site running on the free version of UserEcho so it doesn't have some features I'd like it to have (such as tagging).

We need to be using FIPS 140-2 validated encryption for Wi-Fi and VPN tunnels. This is a hard requirement for NIST 800-171, which is required for all DoD contractors, and subcontractors, and THEIR subcontractors. We have to be compliant by 12/31/2017. If not we have to scrap our Meraki gear.


Show firmware version in dashboard

Rob Geoghan 2 years ago • updated 7 months ago 1

I recently was troubleshooting an issue that I was experiencing on one of my two MX64s devices. The only difference I believed what that they were running different firmware versions but I needed to cal into support to find that out. They changed the firmware to match the version of the other MX64 and my problem went away.

I wish there were alerts/logging when the bandwidth usage or latency has a large deviation (configurable) from the norm so a review could be taken.

When AD authentication not everyone should be able to connect to the VPN.  There should be an option to limit VPN access to those in a specific group(s)

Enable wake on LAN (WOL) on MX series

Enable wake on LAN (WOL) on MX series to allow you to wake up other computers on the LAN. This is a feature that is on the MS line of switches and I'd like it to be implemented on the MX line as well.

Title says it all.

Sometimes when troubleshooting an issue I'd like to reboot the MX overnight.


Provide executive style reports on web surfing history

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago • updated 1 year ago 1
I've been asked in the past to provide management a report on what sites a person has been visiting and the reports haven't been very helpful.  I have found that Barracuda makes some decent high level reports of all users and that can be sent to managers as a scheduled email automatically.

Title says it all. It's a minor thing but should be a simple fix.

There should be a way to specify a different external IP for Guest WIFI networks. ideally i rather not have the Guests and Local Users on the same External IP
