I've written an Expect script (on Windows XP) that automates the process of
Telnetting into a Meraki's RedBoot bootloader and flashing a new firmware.
It makes reflashing a Meraki with OpenWRT a totally automatic process.
For the details, check out:
This makes me feel a lot better about organising a Meraki bulk buy.
Unfortunately, the Outdoor units have sold out and the Meraki website won't
let you order any. But most people who want a Meraki probably want the
Indoor Mini anyway.
The postage to Australia from Meraki seems a lot cheaper now than when I
last checked it - it seems about half price. Not sure if this applies to
the Outdoor unit - I can't check it. After playing with the order form for
a while, and a little spreadsheeting, I've worked out the price per unit in
$AU at the current exchange rate (AU$1 = US$0.82). Here's the lookup table:
PPU AU$ QTY
We hit the "sweet spot" for postage at roughly above 5 units. Any more than
16 units and we'd then have to pay Customs duties and GST.
Can people register their interest with me (off list) if they want a Meraki
Mini? I'll see if I can organise a bulk buy if we get enough numbers.
Orders from interstate are welcome.
