How To Configure Virtual Networks Meraki

If you find your network growing and you need to start segmenting users based on physical locations, you may want to start using virtual networks, or VLANs.

Here’s a quick setup:

Step 1: Enable VLANs by navigating to Security & SD-WAN > Configure > Addressing & VLANs > Deployment Settings > Mode

Enable VLANs in Meraki Settings

Step 2: Configure VLANs. The subnet will be expressed using CIDR notation. The MX IP field is the local MX VLAN interface IP.
