i have a urgent requirement to setup additional wireless AP.
i need to consider 3rd party AP as it will take too long for the meraki AP to arrive at my door step for deployment.
ETA is usually 4-6 weeks upon confirmation of order.
can 3rd party wireless AP work with meraki poe switch MS220 ?
eg. AP from linksys
do I need power injector if the switch is not able to provide sufficent power?
i need poe because the location where i install the AP is high up the celing where there is no way to install power point to power the AP.
As per the above answer. Any Vendor's gear will integrate/work with Meraki gear. As long as the AP supports the appropriate POE standards there'll be no problem.

What country are you in?
The radios in the MR WAPs are really excellent. I've never had any problems, sad to see your situation.
i have deployed 2 units of Linksys LAPN600 and 1 unit of LAPN1200 AP on the meraki switch.
in my old setup i have antslab authenticating clients connecting to meraki AP.
antslab will provide guests with access code to use the WIFI.
for the 3 new Linksys AP, i actually do not need guests to authenticate with the antslab gateway.
i just need a single SSID on the 3 linksys AP for guests to access WIFI Internet.
can this work ?
