After the firmware update to 17.10 are:
- WLAN iOS device very slow when loading information or web pages (often only after multiple reloads).
- Same with App Store
- Sometimes the device switches from WLAN to mobile network
With 17.9 we did not have the problems. (After rollback, OK)
Does anyone have the same problems? Solution?
Update: I did another test with a Windows 11 Lenovo Laptop. With v17.10, the update 22H2 hangs at download 100%. Same test with 17.9 - installation runs.
It is a WLAN problem and not an iOS issue.
Yes, after 17.10 very slow on all wireless devices. Rebooted and power cycled, all without effect. Not wanting to roll back to 17.9 because 17.10 fixed an issue with wireless clients not honoring L7 filter policy. Arg... trade one problem for another :-(.
I can confirm now all problems solved after the downgrade
@Meraki I think think Meraki support need to take an action as it will force the upgrade again and fix that bug on 17.10
We ran into this as well, still on 17.10, but, I was able to at least work around this issue for a small branch office.
Create a policy group for IOS devices
Create a L3 Firewall rule to allow 22.214.171.124/8 (apples subnet)
Create a traffic shaping rule for subnet 126.96.36.199/24 (188.8.131.52/8 would also likely work) and set the DSCP tag to 46 (EF - Expedited forwarding)
Tell IOS users to turn off "Private wi-fi addresses for the wifi network connected to" https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT211227
Move IOS users into correct policy group
Again, workaround for a small office, so does not scale too well, this was done on a MX64W
Annoying they made it stable, now we cant roll out on 16.x anymore without calling meraki support.
imo Meraki really should always let you choose between 2 latest stable versions.(so a 16 and a 17 fw)
Yes, I just got bit by that as well. Forgot to set my firmware upgrade to "Ignore". Had to rollback to 17.9 again to correct performance issues on wireless.
I am going to open ticket now from my side and i think we need this upgrade as i am facing another issue with my MX67W as i have 3 SSID;s and one of the SSID's SSID1 in specific stooped working (No one can see it ) and the only solution after all the troubleshooting is to move the same config to SSID4 !!!
Not sure if you have same issue
Same issue here on 17.10 and 18.102 onwards. 18.101 works fine for wireless clients on an MX68. Haven't tried disabling content filtering yet, just sitting on 16.x
Support actually responded and advised that 16.16 is the last-known-good 16 branch version. I've asked them to make that available to me and I will give that a go to see if I can get back to full L7 filtering and expected performance on my wireless clients. I've been a Meraki MX security appliance customer for over 5 years and never had this much trouble. Sad to see the product line degrade like this.
OK, applied 16.16 and L7 filtering & performance appear to be normal and as expected at this point. I will hold on this version until they resolve the 17.x issues. I am keeping my case open until they fix the 17.x branch.
