Meraki cloud AP basic configuration

if you have firewall on the network you should open the M-Tunnel ports to allow the AP to connect to the cloud (follow this post:
Then connect the AP to the switch port and set the port configuration to trunk mode:

interface FastEthernet1
 description MERAKI_MR18
 switchport mode trunk
 no ip address
 load-interval 30

Now configure the AP IP address (static or dynamic): 

And configure the SSID's - I have 2 SSID’s, one for my LAN and one for guests, which need to be tied to two VLAN’s, 1 and 10, accordingly. My LAN segment is

The SSID configuration for the LAN:

Note that no VLAN tagging is done on this SSID, as this is the network where the AP connects to Meraki cloud.

And the SSID for the guests:

Note that both SSID’s are bridging traffic into the assigned VLAN.
