The following is a brief overview of the steps required to add a Meraki access point to your network:
For additional, model-specific information on installing a new MR access point, please refer to our MR Installation Guides:
All APs with Ethernet connections to the LAN must be assigned routable IP addresses. These IP addresses can be dynamically assigned via DHCP or statically assigned.
For information on deploying a MR AP in a wireless mesh, please refer to our Mesh Deployment Guide.
If a firewall is in place, it must allow outgoing connections on particular ports to particular IP addresses, to ensure AP connectivity with Meraki Cloud Management. The most current list of outbound ports and IP addresses can be found in Dashboard under Help > Firewall info.
