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).

More and more hotels are blocking the current VPN connections


Show resource usage on the MX devices

The MX devices don't give you any information on how much RAM, CPU, etc are being consumed which is important for troubleshooting and sizing out your unit.

You should be able to see how much data and other stats on a LAN port by LAN port basis on the MX line.

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)

Alert when WAN 2 goes down

Rob Geoghan 5 years ago updated by MP-DTC 3 years ago 1

You can't set alerts on the secondary WAN connection. It would really suck to be paying for a secondary WAN connection only to not notice that it went down for a long time without you noticing it.


Show firmware version in dashboard

Rob Geoghan 5 years ago updated 4 years 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.

Under review

Enable wake on LAN (WOL) on MX series

Rob Geoghan 6 years ago updated 2 years ago 5
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.

Abnormal performance alerts and or logging

Rob Geoghan 6 years ago updated 4 years ago 1
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.

Provide executive style reports on web surfing history

Rob Geoghan 6 years ago updated 4 years 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.
