Has anyone here successfully gotten Skyq working on a meraki AP? I've given up and just setup an old unifi ap, and it works perfectly.
I've tried talking to support but it's showing up as client dissassociation so that's the end of the conversation
In my head this is going to related to the sky boxes meshing and repeating, so they are being blocked
Sky is professionally obnoxious.
It is not their policy to play nice with anybody else.
They remain totally indifferent to the need to integrate into an existing network.
They have an uncanny ability to identify and employ the installers from hell.
You think I am being harsh? Look at other manufacturers' forums and see the posts from users about difficulties integrating Sky devices into existing networks. Sky is not alone in this.
If you are doing anything vaguely sophisticated involving multicast IPTV, stick another brand security appliance ahead of the MX and route that traffic directly to the playout devices. As well as being reliable, it is more secure.
I have Sky Q integrated into a full stack Meraki setup. I have 1 main box and 2 mini boxes.
Unfortunately you will not get this to work over WiFi if you have a mini box. I was able to successfully set the boxes to turn off their broadcast SSID and connect to my MR52s. The problem (as I understand it), is that the traffic from the main box to the mini boxes is still transmitted over its own mesh and not over the WiFi connected to the APs. Very frustrating when I have such a robust WiFi set up.
I had to set everything wired, and it does work flawlessly. I have a number of switches between the boxes and the MX. In order to get the iPads etc to stream, I had to set the following on the switches:
Hope this helps.
Unfortunately, for many networks, IGMP Snooping is required. Having to turn it off to make the Sky boxes function is a perfect illustration of not playing nice, as I mentioned above.
