Meraki MR33 and Asus RT-AC68U - Wired Connectivity Issue
I'm using my MR33 on myhome network, and I've run into an issue with my Asus RT-AC68U. Prior to using the AP, myAsus router provided the single source of network connectivity, serving four (4) wired connections and two (2) SSID's, aXXXX-2.4G and aXXX-5G.
Upon install of the AP, I used an existing wired connection to connectto the AP and gave it a new SSID for clients to connect to. I disabled the 2.4/5GHz radios on my Asus, but didn't remove the SSID's. So now that the AP is up and running with no issues itself, I've noticed that the other three (3) wired connections from my Asus router are not working. I can see link lights, but they're not passing traffic.
I'm relatively new to Meraki, so I wasn't sure if this was a bridge mode issue on the AP, or some other setting that I overlooked completely. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
I've encountered this issue on an Asus Wireless router before.
The only option was to enable the wireless radio to get the router to route wired traffic even though we were not using it for wireless. It is definitely an issue with the Asus. Try a firmware upgrade, in our case that didn't help and support was a waste of time.
I'm assuming that disabling the wireless radio disables an internal bridge interface but that's just a guess.
Hey, thanks for your response! So if I'm understanding you correctly, you're saying to have the Asus' WIFI enabled, as well as the AP's? I'm assuming the router's SSIDs don't need to match the SSIDs that the AP is advertising?
Its funny that you mentioned updating the firmware, though. I actually went through that process last night, but with WIFI already disabled, I wasn't able to verify your findings. I'll be sure to try it later today.
I'm not sure what you meant by 'unable to verify your findings'. The only thing I found was that disabling the wireless radios on the Asus stopped LAN traffic from routing and that the firmware update nor support helped.
