  1. 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

  3. More options in "Terms of use acceptance" session expires

    I want us to be allowed to get more options in session expires or a full customizable options like voucher definition, in which you can insert a custom value for validity period among other options.

  4. Hotspot password of the day censoring

    We just had a hotspot password of the day of "rapexace02" be generated for a customer that works with people experiencing domestic violence. It didn't go down well. Could these passwords be automatically generated if they contain any sensitive keywords?

  5. "Blacklist" of MAC addresses of wireless devices that are not allowed by an AP for a connection

    For each connected AP you should be able to specify a "blacklist" of MAC addresses in the XG that are not allowed by the AP for a connection. This is to ensure that stationary devices such as printers, WiFi cameras, streaming devices can only connect to the AP that is intended for them and that is located nearby.

  8. Built-in WiFi should support Bridge to VLAN

    The XG105w (wireless enabled) only supports Bridge to AP or Separate Zone, and not bridge to VLAN. This is fine for when you a have a really small deployment, which is not integrated with additional Sophos AP's within the environment. For a growing and secure wireless SMB environment the best practice would be to utilise VLAN's and segment the different wireless traffic through the network.
    Ideally this config should flow and replicated through AP groups including the XG on-board wireless.
