I am in a such a scenario and looking to see if there is an option to convert one of the 8 × GbE (RJ45) ports on MX450 device to a WAN port. Actual requirement is to get 2G uplink speed for the internet and wanted to see if I can do a port-channel between one of the WAN port ( using 1G fiber SFP ie MA-SFP-1GB-SX module ) and one of 8 × GbE (RJ45) ports to get a total of 2G uplink bandwidth. Currently, i don't have any option procure any further sfp modules.
Welcome to any other ideas as well ( without adding any further SFPs modules 🙂 ) ..

Hi @SobyKuruvilla I'm not sure if you can change one of those ports to a WAN port. I'll let another comment there.
However, for a Port-channel to work the media types need to be the same. You can't bundle a fibre port with a copper port.
Thanks for prompt response. We can have port-channel of different media types. I have this scenario in production between Cisco catalyst and WLC with 2x 1G port-channel ( one fiber+one copper). Not sure if it is not possible for Meraki devices.
Hi @SobyKuruvilla . Apologies, my statement was incorrect. It doesn't matter on the media types but comes down to Speed and duplex. Doh
