Before Cisco Meraki devices can be monitored and configured, they must first be added to a network in Dashboard. This article will cover how to add devices to networks in Dashboard, as well as how to remove them later if needed.
While there are multiple ways devices can be added to a network, this section will outline the simplest process that applies to all devices and network types. Before beginning, create a network if one doesn't already exist.
Note: Only one MX or Z1 can be in a network, unless two MXes are used in a HA pair. Adding more than one device type to a network will automatically convert that network to a combined network.
Sometimes devices need to be removed from networks in Dashboard. This can be as part of a replacement, moving to a different organization, or various other reasons. The exact process for this differs by device type.
