But how else are they to stay open?
Always look at the business model.
they didn't really have one.
With out this, 2 years max, they would have been bankrupt and you would have all been screaming about how you spent money on a brick.--

Airlink, linksys, d-link, etc. sell routers for $20-$50 each. Personally, I never paid over $30 for a router until I purchased a few meraki units. I justified the additional cost because they were mesh networking units, not just routers. They pulled a bait-and-switch, plain and simple. Meraki customers were misled, the entire time we've been building networks for meraki, not for ourselves. The mandatory ad bar and tripled price tag really destroy any credibility they had.
if you flash some of the popular routers with the sveasoft firmware you can get the mesh feature as well.
You can use mDD-WRT firmware on the Meraki...
Buy the basic units and then flash DD-WRT on them. Problem solved.
