Enabling, Disabling, and Changing SSID Names

The basic properties of a Cisco Meraki wireless network, such as network name and SSID name, can be updated from Dashboard on the SSID page. This can be beneficial if you want to create additional SSIDs for separate departments or you want to update the current SSID you are using.  

To configure or update the name of an SSID, navigate to Wireless > Configure > SSIDs.

To enable or disable the SSID:

  1. Make a selection in the Enable drop-down menu.
  2. Click Save Changes.

To change the name of the SSID:

  1. Click on the rename button.
  2. Enter the new name.
  3. Click Save Changes.

Note that this change will require all of your wireless clients to re-associate with the SSID.

The bandwidth limit displayed in the Wireless > Configure > SSIDs overview page is the per-client limit and not the per-SSID limit.

The client blocked from using LAN configuration is found under Wireless > Configure > Firewall & traffic shaping.
