"Meter = " can't work there, since it gives Meter a numeric value, hence
you can't use it as the Solve variable. Infinite recursion results.
If you mean == instead (much more likely with Solve), then:
Solve[Meter == Floor[Sqrt[19] + 7] && Meter < 6, Meter]
{}
There is no solution, since
Floor[Sqrt[19] + 7]
11
and
11 < 6
False
Using the built-in symbol Meter as a variable makes no sense, anyway.
