  1. Restart Wireless Access Point Function

    Each access point should be able to be restarted. This helps in two ways:

    1. Perform a OS restart of the Access Point if 'turning on and off' the wireless network does not work
    2. Allows you to see a port blip on the POE switch to confirm what port the AP is connected to in remote areas

  2. wireless band steering

    Band steering allows dual band devices to be forced onto the faster 5Ghz spectrum when supported to free up bandwidth for those devices which only support the 2.4Ghz spectrum.
    I believe Sophos Cloud wifi already supports this.
    We need this on both XG and UTM

    senthilraj.s responded

    Thank you for Reaching out .

    Wireless Bandsteering on XG & UTM is present in our Roadmap . We will keep you posted once a Release Vehicle is Identified .

  3. Rogue access point detection

    The Sophos XG firewalls should be able to detect rogue access points with APs connected the same way the models with built in wireless do.

  4. HotSpot logging

    hotspot

    HotSpot feature lacks logging capabilities.

    For example it would be great to autmatically map and log voucher code with IP address of user that was using it and create reports based on this.
    Without this it's impossible to audit what traffic was generated by that user.

    Same issue is with UTM:

    Thanks,

  6. Hotspot

    Hotspot service has a number of problems.

    1. For some unknown reason Terms of Use entry field is now limited to 1024 characters. This was not the case in UTM 9. 1024 is no where near enough for a usable legal terms of use. This forces you to have to place it on a public web page and just link to it from the Terms of use field.

    2. Live session usage for Hotpot. Currently when someone is logged on to a hotspot using a non Sophos access point there is not live user information and no way to terminate…

  8. 802.11 k

    Apple Devices & WiFi:
    So everybody knows that Apple has its own opinion for WiFi Roaming and switching to the next AP with the best wifi signal. I think it's a good idea to implement the 802.11k standard to Sophos AccessPoints, according to the knowledge page from Apple at: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202628 where they talking about the 802.11k Standard. Maybe this is a solution for Apple devices that have connection issues and do not want to switch the access point.

  9. Notified abount Access Point UP / Down

    it could be nice to receive notification about the status of AP connected to XG (Wireless Protection), actually the state is displayed on the dashboard (numer of total AP / number of AP connected) but it is not a warning, there is no log in the Wireless Security section related to an AP that goes offline. Also in SFM there is no specific Alert/Notification about AP state.

  10. Support for WPA3

    I realize that it's a new standard, and the WFA is only just now beginning to certify devices, but are there plans to attain WPA3 certification for Sophos AP and managing firewalls?

  11. Wireless Site Survey

    I think you can do it on Sophos Cloud, but the ability to upload and mark on on a floor plan where all the access points are, and do site surveys.

    It will be much easier for us if we able to reboot the AP from XG.

  13. Sophos Access Points to remain working even if XG is unreachable

    The downside we have identified for Sophos APs is that if a remote office with Sophos APs is connected to head-office XG via VPN and everything routes through the VPN, when connectivity is lost, the APs go offline and the remote offices cannot even access their local devices (e.g. printers / local NAS) via WiFi.
    This makes a WAN issue into a much larger impact as the remote offices are unable to work effectively.

    This request is that when XG is not reachable by the AP, it will fallback into an admin defined mode. e.g. if normal mode is bridged…

  14. Remote Restart of Wireless Access Point

    I'm facing a issue of High Latency on my Wi-Fi network with Sophos XG 230. While troubleshooting the same, I thought of restarting the APs to see if that helps. I'd to go and do that manually by going to every place the APs are installed. In a 6Floor building and 3 satellite office connected on fiber, with more than 15 APs, its a bit tough job to do so.

    Request to enable a function in the OS to restart the APs remotely,

  16. Hotspot Terms of Use

    I think 1024 characters isn't enough for terms of use. Please increase the size of that field.

  17. wireless - updates

    it would be great to schedule applying updates to wireless AP units.

    It would also be good to be able to update multiple APs at different times in order to avoid a total wireless outage

  18. WI-FI connectivity status and usage

    XG wireless lack a way to identify devices connected to the APs as well as not able to see any kind of live usage data. In SG it's possible to see how a wide variety of wireless information and live data. This really is something required in Sophos XG

  19. WiFi Hotspot separate out help and notifications email addresses

    Currently, the support address provided under of the terms of use at the bottom of the hotspot login page is the same address as that configured for XG system notifications. This information is not a customisable part of the login page template, and cannot be removed.

    It would be helpful to be able to have more flexibility here for a use case where a different team / individual deals with any wireless queries to the team that receive / manage notifications.

  20. Allow MAC list on Hotspot

    I have created Hotspot and the vouchers for guest users. However, on this hotspot, I would like to have some users be authenticated with their MAC addresses such that they are not prompted with a captive portal to enter voucher. This feature is helpful - to authenticate/allow users based on MAC addresses on guest or other hotspot.
