  1. vlan sub-interfaces should be retained during wireless access point bridge to ethernet

    In sfos 18 when bridging wireless to ethernet as outlined in https://support.sophos.com/support/s/article/KB-000035549 all vlan sub-interfaces of the physical interface are actually lost and must be recreated manually. These should be automatically retained or recreated during the bridge interface creation process.

  2. Simply set Individual hotspot password instead of Voucher / POTD

    In our former hotspot solution we simply could set an individual password which makes some sense for us/customers. Now I can only generate a password for an unlimited number of devices to gain the same effect but without the possibility to define this password on my own.

  3. Auto Registration (Authenticaton)

    Self-registtration by emaill address for hotspots would be a good feature.

  4. Sort feature for wireless access point page

    In Wireless > Access Points, in the access point list you should be able to sort by any of the columns. Currently you cannot sort AT ALL. This is just absolutely crucial for us and I am sure many other Sophos wireless customers. The most important would be the "Label, Status, Group, IP, and Type". Please implement this feature ASAP.

  5. expand custom hostname Hotspots length limit

    currently the custom hostname Hotspots length is limited up to 30 characters. If Sophos expand the database-field to more than 30 characters this would be great

  7. Wireless PSK Max/Min Lenght

    The WPA2 field doesn't warn users if they input a value that is longer that what is allowed. Instead it saves the configuration and puts the wireless network in open mode without any security. All password fields within the XG should notify the user of the input restraints they have. They should notify a user of the min-max length. Complexity meter would also be helpful to improve users password choices.

  8. Requirements Hotspot Password (POTD)

    Change the requirements of the Hotspot Password (POTD). Password is now generated with 10 characters (a-z, 0-9). Make it possible to change it, example 12 char (a-z, A-Z, 0-9, !@#$)

  9. Implement "remember username/password" feature on Captive portal

    Captive Portal needs a feature to allow remembering of username/password as the users are having to re-type in their username every time they want to access internet.

  11. VLAN bridge support in MESH network

    Currently in XG v18 VLAN bridge in MESH newtwork using APX appliances is not supported.
    This feature does exist in current Central Wireless.

    Please support it also in XG.

  12. Implement RADIUS failover support for APX Access Points

    It has come to my attention that while the XG firewall allows you to enter two RADIUS servers for wireless authentication failover. The APX series access points do not support the secondary server.

    This creates a high risk for wireless service disruption in the event the primary server goes offline. The lack of support for this functionality requires an engineer to manually promote the secondary server as the primary in the event of a failure.

  15. Implementation for mac host groups .

    Missing feature since long time Implementation for mac host groups .

    Now It's possible to create group for ip, fqdn but not for mac-hosts.
    For example: the authorization for the connection to wifi using mac filtering with whitelist or blacklist ..the mac host cant be picked from the existent list...and inserting the mac address only miss the possibility to tag and associate the mac to user or pc

  17. Rolling firmware updates for WAPs

    Would be extremely beneficial to be able to roll out firmware updates for wireless APs in a staged manner - i.e. update one at a time instead of all together, so that there's no (or minimal) interruption to service.

    At the moment, I can't update access points during the day, because it will disconnect WiFi for all users. If we could do them one at a time, it would become possible.

    UniFi has this feature (they call it a "rolling update") and it's really nice. Updates each AP in turn, and doesn't start the next one until the last is…

  18. Improved AP management

    I'd like to see a few improvements to management and monitoring of APs being controlled by an XG appliance:

    • Display other competing networks and channels strength for channel selection
    • Show access point utilization and establish thresholds for utilization trends
    • Integrate floor plans to position APs visually.
    • Couple the former with perhaps a mobile app to identify potential deadzones/heat mapping

    Use case currently is that I've been getting reports from one of my sites that wifi has been having intermittent issues, and the data needed to remedy it effectively is much more difficult to obtain than it needs to be
