Hello @firstclick, The MX's can be put into bridge mode by navigating to Security appliance>addressing & Vlans and choosing "Passthrough or VPN Concentrator mode".

 

This will ultimately put the MX into layer 2 bridging mode.

Re: meraki mx configure as bridge mode (Transparent)

Can I ask if in Passthrough Mode will I be able to bypass the Wan1 250Mbps limitation of MX64? In other words if I put a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter between my ISP modem and the MX64 can I achieve behind the MX64 LAN ports the same 900Mbps+ throughput I get directly behind the EdgeRouter?

Modem-> 900Mbps+ -> UBNT EdgeRouter -> 900Mbps+ -> Meraki MX64 (passthrough) -> ??? 900Mbps+ ???
