This guide shows how to configure a Cisco Meraki device (MR series) for SpotOn.

Radius Accounting: https://documentation.meraki.com/MR/Splash_Page/Configuring_RADIUS_Authentication_with_a_Sign-on_Splash_Page
I'm setting up my Meraki Dashboard to be used with SpotOn WiFi and these features are required. Please update the device's firmware at your earliest convenience. Thank you in advance.
To use these access points, it is necessary for the router to be connected to the Internet. It is recommended to update your device firmware to the last available version. You may choose to configure the device to automatically receive and install last firmware updates.
You will require a RADIUS password and a Custom URL from the SpotOn Support team. Chat with us, send an e-mail ([email protected]) or give us a call (050 211 5201).
Configuring your SSID
The first step is configuring the SSID of the access point.
Please select your organization and group, then select Wireless in the drop-down menu and then click SSIDs under the Configure subsection.
Then select your SSID. If you want to use an inactive SSID, please click on SHOW ALL MY SSIDS.
Then enable your inactive SSID.

You can rename the SSID at your convenience by clicking RENAME.

Set following settings accordingly:
