It doesn't need any configuration. Give it power and make sure it's claimed into the correct network, in due time you should see it come online as a repeater.

Only works with meraki products  2x MR. 

Not with just any router

 

You can use it as extension using a utp  cable  to your corrent (wifi)router, put mr ssid in bridge mode, and use the same ssid as you router.

Ah good catch! Shows I shouldn't skim read a post. Yes, MR's can only mesh with other MRs. You *cannot* configure an MR to repeat any non-MR networks, this includes MX with Wireless.
