8.8.8.8 is Googles DNS, it's the MR doing a connectivity check. 

 

How I can check this and change it?

Meraki dashboard isnt good enough to ping so they use other services.. to tereminate if the APs are up and working..

Getting noticed

I heard that google didn't like devices pinging 8.8.8.8 constantly and they start rate limiting the IP, not sure how true it is.

 

Don't understand why Meraki don't ping the parent Cisco open DNS servers ??
