Jul 1, 2022


Welcome to Integrity Hotel Partners' comprehensive MR46 installation guide. If you are looking to set up and configure your Cisco Meraki MR46 wireless access points, you've come to the right place. In this detailed guide, we will walk you through the installation process, providing step-by-step instructions, essential tips, and helpful insights to ensure a successful deployment.

Chapter 1: Preparing for Installation

Before diving into the installation process, it's important to prepare your environment and gather the necessary tools. Here are a few key steps to follow:

  • Perform a site survey to identify the optimal locations for your MR46 access points.
  • Ensure you have the required power outlets and network infrastructure in place.
  • Check for any potential sources of interference that may impact wireless performance.
  • Gather the necessary tools including a ladder, mounting brackets, and network cables.

Chapter 2: Mounting the MR46 Access Point

Proper mounting is crucial to maximize the MR46's coverage and performance. Follow these steps to securely mount your access point:

  1. Identify the location based on your site survey and mount the access point at a suitable height (ideally above obstacles and at a central location).
  2. Attach the mounting bracket securely to the wall or ceiling using the provided screws.
  3. Ensure the access point is firmly locked into the mounting bracket, providing a stable and secure installation.

Chapter 3: Network Configuration

Setting up the network properly plays a vital role in the performance and functionality of your MR46 access points. Consider the following steps:

  1. Connect the MR46 access point to your network using an Ethernet cable.
  2. Configure the appropriate network settings, including IP address assignment and VLAN settings.
  3. Ensure proper DHCP and DNS configurations to enable seamless connectivity for your wireless clients.
  4. Implement any necessary firewall rules or security protocols to protect your network.

Chapter 4: Powering and Testing

Once the MR46 access point is mounted and the network configuration is complete, it's time to power it on and perform thorough testing to ensure everything is functioning as expected:

  1. Connect the MR46 access point to a power outlet using the provided power adapter.
  2. Observe the LED indicator lights to ensure the access point is receiving power.
  3. Access the Meraki dashboard or mobile app to validate the connection and monitor the wireless performance.
  4. Perform a series of tests to verify coverage, signal strength, and overall network stability.

Chapter 5: Fine-Tuning and Optimization

To achieve optimal performance from your MR46 access points, it's important to fine-tune and optimize certain settings. Consider the following:

  • Adjust transmit power levels to ensure optimal coverage without causing interference.
  • Configure radio settings, such as channel selection and band steering, to optimize performance in different environments.
  • Implement traffic shaping and quality of service (QoS) policies to prioritize critical applications and enhance user experience.
  • Regularly monitor and analyze network performance to identify areas for improvement and implement necessary adjustments.
