MX and Z1 Wireless Settings

Table of contents

To enable 802.11 wireless networking on your device, click Security Appliance/Teleworker Gateway > Configure > Wireless settings and toggle the SSID status to Enabled. You will need to choose a name for each SSID, a VLAN assignment (if VLANs are enabled on your appliance) and the wireless authentication method. Some things to note about MX64/65W wireless settings:

  • All SSIDs are in bridge mode.
  • Any additional functionality such as traffic shaping, DHCP service, splash page, or content filtering should be configured on the VLAN that the SSID is assigned to.
  • Open, WEP, WPA2-PSK, and WPA2-Enterprise are the supported Authentication methods. WPA2-Enterprise can use either Meraki Cloud authentication or RADIUS server authentication. If RADIUS is selected, click "Add a server" to configure the RADIUS server settings.
  • SSIDs can be advertised publicly or hidden for security purposes. More information on SSID visibility can be found here.

Only the MX64W, MX65W, and Z1 support 802.11a/b/g/n wireless settings. The MX64W and MX65W also support 802.11ac.

Channel settings

The MX64/65W and Z1 can operate on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz band, and can operate on both simultaneously. However, the MX60W can either operate on the 2.4GHz or 5GHz band, but cannot operate on both simultaneously. You can select the wireless channel and adjust transmit power under Channel Settings.
