Purpose

This guide shows how to configure a Cisco Meraki device (MR series) for SpotOn.

 

Prerequisites

If you don’t see the options to set Splash page, Access control, RADIUS Accounting and/or DNS-Based Walled Garden Support under Configure tab, ask Meraki via technical support for firmware upgrade:
 

Dear Meraki support,
I'd like you to get the access to the features described below:
Splash Page: https://documentation.meraki.com/MX-Z/Access_Control_and_Splash_Page/Splash_Page
Access Control: https://documentation.meraki.com/MX-Z/Access_Control_and_Splash_Page/Access_Control
Walled Garden: https://documentation.meraki.com/zGeneral_Administration/Cross-Platform_Content/Walled_Garden
Radius Accounting: https://documentation.meraki.com/MR/Splash_Page/Configuring_RADIUS_Authentication_with_a_Sign-on_Splash_Page
I'm setting up my Meraki Dashboard to be used with SpotOn WiFi and these features are required.
Please update the device's firmware at your earliest convenience. 
Thank you in advance.

To use these access points, it is necessary for the router to be connected to the Internet. It is recommended to update your device firmware to the last available version. You may choose to configure the device to automatically receive and install last firmware updates.

 

Configuring your SSID

The first step is configuring the SSID of the access point.
Please select your organization and group, then select Wireless in the drop-down menu and then click SSIDs under the Configure subsection.
