WiFi-5 MR access points are now supported as MT gateways!

As of firmware version MR28.3, Meraki MT sensors can now connect to most WiFi-5 MR access points as gateways to the Meraki platform. Deliver new business outcomes by transforming your existing environments into smart spaces with environmental monitoring and real-time alerts. 


Supported WiFi-5 MR access points include:

MR33, MR42, MR42E, MR52, MR53, MR53E, MR74 and MR84


Upgrade your eligible MR devices to the latest public beta firmware (MR28.4) to take advantage of this new functionality.



For more information, please refer to the firmware release notes and the Meraki MT documentation.

Kind of a big deal

@David-H I just added an MT to a WiFi5 wave2 network and saw this message, which I think needs updating:

@cmr thank you for sharing! I'll let the team know. 

Thanks @David-H  We got a couple of MT12s (as part of a large Meraki switch upgrade) but didn’t realise they were WiFi 6 only. We have mr33s 


upgraded them to v28 and had zero issues. Nice job!
