Hello Guys, maybe somebody can help me.
I want to use on my MX67W passtrough mode, but it works really strange.
My topology isquite standard. In company is Mikrotik router and behind him switches and vlans. I cant change topology of swithces and do chcnges there.
But we want to do same security features in network, like IPS/IDS and visibility of network. Therefore i want to add meraki MX between router and core switch in passtrough mode. Router >> MX >> Switch.
I dont know which port to use, or how it works, If I use Meraki WAN port like upstream to Router, and LAN port to Switch, everything works, but there is terrible speeds(troughput in network), like 7-9 Mbs, Dashboard is ok, connection to dashboard working, security works...but speed problem.
Therefore I have tried to use LAN port to upstream router and lan port to downstream switch.In this topology, speeds were normal, like expected, but Dashoard was inreacheble(no management IP address, which i understand).
So i have tried 3rd option.
Where i have used MX lan port to router, mx lan port to downstream switch and WAN port to upstream router as management port. In this config is problem as well. Because of RSTP. Everytime if i connect second link to upsteram router(LAN and WAN), it will create LOOP and one port is blocking.(even if i chose different vlan IP)
Is here somebody who know how it works? I dont know physical connection of MX passtrough. In standard devices should be like two lan ports and some management IP, but in meraki id does not work like that...
I am really confused about it.
Thanks for any advice.
