    But have you raised it that you have now had multiple failures? IMHO I would be looking at something which is exactly the same between all the failures - which points towards POE injectors. But it could just be a freak failure of devices.

    I did mention we didn't use Meraki POEs but they didn't seem interested

    at the end of the day anything that provides POE should be fine - It was just more wondering if it was something else rather than the AP's themselves causing an issue (maybe overloading/surge etc)

    It could just well be that you have been unluck.

    I think when I get chance I will start changing them for original Meraki items, if these are supplying overvoltage over a long period they might causing damage. I think a suck it and see approach for now. Thanks for the advice though.

    Bit of a late response but we had our entire wireless network* replaced with Meraki MR16 and MR24s back in February (connected to Cisco Catalyst 2960S PoE switches) - we had so many APs fail that Meraki ended up upgrading all the APs to MR18/MR26 units at no cost. It seems they have had issues with bad batches of the MR16s.

    *The old system was Cisco 1131 APs on Cisco 4404 WLAN controllers with ACS and WCS in the backend

    We also installed a batch of MR16s over the past 12 months and had about a 10% failure rate. Got the same response as OP - Meraki just RMA'd them and couldn't give an explanation. Response from our Meraki account manager was pretty good, and the return time wasn't bad. We're just about to buy a batch of the MR16 replacements.
