Support for PPPoE on Cisco Meraki Devices

Table of contents
No headers

Cisco Meraki MX Security Appliances support Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE). You may need PPPoE if your ISP requires a username and password to access your DSL connection. PPPoE can be configured on the device's Local Status Page, under the Configure tab by setting the Connection type to PPPoE:

Please note that PPPoE is not supported by Cisco Meraki MR Series Access Points. A successful workaround for MR Series Access Points is to use a security appliance or router (such as a Cisco Meraki MX, Linksys, Netgear or D-Link) that supports PPPoE and then connect the Cisco Meraki AP to one of the LAN Ethernet ports. Cisco Meraki recommends turning off the wireless functionality of the non-Meraki routers that have wireless capabilities.

Note: PPPoE is unrelated to Power over Ethernet (PoE).
