Has anyone got a Spectralink 8030 to work with a Meraki wireless network (MR34 and MR16)?

I am trying to use SIP on the 8030 and be an endpoint for an Asterisk based phone system.

Thanks,

Jeff

    Hello Jeff,

    I'm not aware of anyone trying this but are you experiencing any particular error message? That might help explain what to do next or what to look for.

    Justin,

    I can connect to the network, but on the phone I get the error "No Net Found No WMM APs".  This error is basically saying that my APs are not configured correctly.  I know that Spectralink does not specifically acknowledge working with Meraki, but there are some who have gotten it to work.

    The Meraki MR34 should support WMM and WMM-PS.

    Hello,

    I would suggest putting the handset into site survey mode and making sure it can see the SSID you've configured for it. You can look at the detail for the AP to see if it is advertising WMM-PS. In the bottom left corner you'll see Q: followed by a digit and you should see the letter P as well. The digit would indicate the access category if you're using WMM-AC and the P indicates that the AP is advertising WMM-PS. If the P isn't showing then the AP is likely missing some configuration to enable WMM-PS or UAPSD. 

    The admin guide has a detailed explanation of what all the values displayed in site survey mode mean, if you need them. 

    If the AP is doesn't show up in the list then the SSID is likely wrong in the phone. Press the Any soft key to see if it shows up in the list.

    I see Q:0P for my wireless networks.

    The screen looks something like this;

    What's odd is that there's no SSID shown. It should show the SSID under the MAC address. Was this intentionally removed? 

    The security is set to none so it's not related to security settings. The only thing I can see is the lack of the SSID.

    I think I found it.  Admission Control was set to Mandatory.  I changed to Optional and I got to registering SIP.

    Thanks for your help.

    Could you post your SSID configs? I have MR16s and an 8440 running 4.9 (also tested 4.8) and it always complains "No APs found". AC is off on the spectralink. I've tried with WPA2-ENT and PSK with no love. The device sees the APs in the diagnostics, but won't connect.

    We are looking for the WMM setting for the Meraki. Spectralink has explained that the phone needs to show WMM PS otherwise it won't connect to the AP and shows "No AP Found." Meraki has said that they support power save but don't provide notification of it on the MR 16. The tech sheet says they support U-APSD. Have you been able to get this to work?

    Nope. I have given up. If there was another wifi phone that worked with Lync, I would be so happy...

    ok - we just solved this. The problem is that the older MR16 APs do not support U-ASPD. MR18 and newer do. Just tested an MR18,32,34 and they all work

    I want to test this phone on these new APs. Could someone provide some guidance?

    Hello Steve, What sort of guidance do you need? The Spectralink phone requires that the AP support WMM and WMM-PS (which is also knowns as U-APSD) in order for the the phone to be able to connect. As long as the AP and phone are setup with the same SSID and security settings, using one of the AP's that support the WMM settings, the phone will just connect. Thank you,
