1. Advocate for full stack Meraki vs multi-vendor solutions because it'll save time and money with better security in the long run. 2. Merge all your Meraki hardware into a single network for better dashboard functionality .

Here is my fix after several hours of research and testing and no resolution from Meraki support. Resolution courtesy of Tenundra, Inc. On the user windows 10 machine open windows explorer and go to: c:\users\USERID\appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk Note to replace UserID in the path with the user you are working with. Also note that appdata is a hidden folder so if you don't see it, type it in manually to get beyond the path. You can also search from the start button with %APPDATA% and it'll get you into the appdata folder and you can proceed from there Once you are in the PBK folder you'll see an old windows program called RASPHONE RIght click it and make a shortcut to rasphone on your desktop. Now open the shortcut and create a new connection with a VPN name you haven't used yet like VPN-Company Once Created, find that in the list, go to properties and under security enter all the VPN settings you need per the Meraki Instructions that supposed to work (i.e. PAP, require encryption, L2TP and key) Click OK Click connect to the VPN you just made via the rasphone window that should still be on your screen Enter your user's Meraki VPN credentials Click connect NOTE: Always use this method to connect. If you use the official windows 10 "easy" method it'll break the settings and you'll need to reset them under the security tab again. So now your VPN connection should work. If it doesn't you may need to create the DWORD32 registry key: AssumeUDPEncapsulationContextOnSendRule with a value of 2 under the registry path HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\PolicyAgent If you make or change the registry entry, reboot the PC so it take effect. Be well.
