The Cumbrians were awarded a penalty - converted by Jamie Devitt - in Tuesday night's 3-3 draw with Wycombe after Miller went down in the box following a challenge by defender Dan Scarr.
But Miller was subsequently charged by the FA with 'successful deception of a match official', a new offence which came into force at the start of the season.
Carlisle lodged an appeal but that has proved unsuccessful and Miller will now serve a two-match suspension.
"We are very disappointed with this outcome," Carlisle chief executive Nigel Clibbens told the club's official website.

"In our view, there was no intent to deceive the referee and it is not a clear act either.
"Shaun and no other Carlisle United players appealed for a penalty. They all played on and were not expecting or seeking any decision.
"You can see from the footage that they were all surprised when a penalty was given."
