I've recently bought 1 Cisco meraki switch and 4 Access points. I can't register them on my account because the serial numbers are all still in use. Is there anything I can do?
Contact who you got them from and have them unregistered them. Meraki won’t do anything. We had the same problem with a shady vendor selling us used hardware.
One problem with that.. I bought them from Toys R Us. They were supposed to unregister and reset everything. Problem is, they don't exist anymore
No, you bought them from the liquidator who as assigned by the bankruptcy court to unload all the shit from a Toys R Us store when they went under.
Put them in electronic recycling, they are useless.
You can keep trying in case TRU actually does unclaim them at some point, but if they're never released from TRU's organization, you're screwed.
The poor tech at Toys R Us is on the unemployment rolls right now, he's probably not logging into the dashboard with his old work email account to clean up and do housekeeping.
Off topic question. How did it come about that Toys R Us is selling used Meraki gear?
They aren't selling them retail as a product - Toys R Us is going out of business and selling everything down to shelves and light fixtures.
They’re selling everything. Check out /r/homelab
You can call who you bought them from to unregister or plead your case to Meraki.
Meraki has a hard-no policy on stuff like this, they are going to be of zero assistance.
Depening on the access points models, you might be able to install openwrt on them
Other than that, they are just paperweights
They are all MR18. Is there anything else I can possibly do with the switch? I connected it and I'm able to use it as a regular poe switch.
They are all MR18.
The MR18 are very meh access points, those were the ones Meraki was giving away like candy when you sat through their webinars
I connected it and I'm able to use it as a regular poe switch.
