Apr 10, 2020

Welcome to Integrity Hotel Partners, your trusted partner in the Business and Consumer Services - Real Estate industry. We are dedicated to providing high-quality solutions to meet your wireless networking needs. In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the process of authenticating your Android devices with Meraki, ensuring a seamless and secure connection for your guests.

The Importance of Android and Meraki Authentication

With the increasing reliance on mobile devices in the hospitality industry, it is crucial to have a reliable and secure wireless network. Android and Meraki authentication plays a vital role in ensuring that only authorized users can access your network, protecting your sensitive data and maintaining a positive user experience for your guests.

Understanding Meraki Authentication

Meraki, a leading provider of cloud-managed networking solutions, offers a range of features to enhance your wireless network security. One such feature is the built-in authentication functionality that allows you to control who can connect to your network and how they authenticate themselves.

When it comes to Android devices, Meraki provides seamless integration and a user-friendly interface. By following our step-by-step guide, you can easily configure your Meraki access points to authenticate Android devices, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free experience for both your staff and guests.

Step-by-Step Guide: Android and Meraki Authentication

Step 1: Accessing the Meraki Dashboard

To begin the authentication process, you need to access the Meraki dashboard. Simply log in to your Meraki account and navigate to the wireless settings of your access points.

Step 2: Configuring SSID and Security Settings

Once in the wireless settings, select the SSID you wish to configure for Android authentication. Ensure that the security settings are set to "WPA2 Enterprise," as this provides the highest level of security.

Step 3: Enabling RADIUS Authentication

Meraki supports RADIUS authentication, which allows you to authenticate users against a RADIUS server. In this case, we will use Meraki's built-in RADIUS server for simplicity. Enable RADIUS authentication and set a strong shared secret to secure the authentication process.

Step 4: Configuring Android Devices for Authentication

Before connecting Android devices to your network, you need to configure them to utilize the Meraki authentication. Access the Wi-Fi settings on each Android device and select the SSID you configured in the previous steps. Choose "802.1x EAP" as the authentication method and enter the appropriate credentials provided by your system administrator.

Step 5: Testing and Troubleshooting

Once the configuration is complete, it is essential to test the authentication process to ensure its effectiveness. Connect a test Android device to the network and verify that it successfully authenticates and gains access to the internet. If any issues arise, consult our troubleshooting guide or contact our support team for further assistance.
