We will have a small cafe and will install a wifi connectivity. Can I connect ADSL link (internet link) directly to a Meraki AP (MR20/MR33)? or should I have a router first?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can you tell us some more about the ADSL connection? Where is it terminated? It's likely that the device it's terminated is in fact a router. Either way, yes you can directly connect an MR to the internet. Just make sure your SSIDs are in NAT mode in that case.
The adsl link is connected to a ISP modem.
Can we configure Meraki AP to have dynamic public IP (PPPoE) and still be managed through the cloud controller?
If your xDSL modem is configured in router mode, so it dials the PPPoE connection and has a DCHP server with NAT, connecting it to a MR33 (With Power Supply) will work and it will reach the Meraki Cloud.
Most ADSL modems are set up this way by ISPs.
