Meraki mr16 snapshot install

Hi there, I am stuck installing the latest snapshot on my meraki mr16.

I have completed the installation of both files and am now connected to the access point with winscp.

when I issue the command "opkg update" it fails to connect and get package lists

I have it connected to my switch on home network so i'm assuming I need to setup networking on it manually over the cli first??

How do I go about this?

or is there a simpler way to get Luci installed on it??

Thank you.

Connect via ssh or console and change network mode to DHCP:

uci set network.lan.proto='dhcp'
uci commit && service network restart

Then again connect to AP, the new ip of AP look at on router, and install luci:

opkg update
opkg install luci

PROFIT :slight_smile:

Awesome thank you.

Should have this info on the device page really.



it is,

just not on the device page.
and switching from static IP do DHCP isn't a must, it all depends on your network layout.
