  2. wireless networks names

    Why the Wireless Network Name has only 10 digits..??

    Will be so nice if the name for a wireless network be the same length as it´s SSID name.

  3. 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.

  4. Allow Visibility of Guest Hotspot Users

    It would be really nice to be able to see a list of current Hostname/Mac addresses of those using the hotspot (and boot them if necessary).

    It would be even better if I could get a daily report that shows me hostnames/mac addresses of those people using the hotspot.

  5. Hotspot Terms of Use

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

  6. Wireless AP Unique Identifier (UID)

    It would be great if we can trigger UID LED on the wireless access point. Sometimes it is hard to determine which physical access point we're configuring especially when located in multiple levels.

  7. 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

  8. wireless client list

    On the UTM there is the option to add custom names to a wireless client.
    Wireless protection - Wireless clients - Wireless Client list
    Would be great to have this option on XG also.

  9. Wireless AP Channel planning

    Require the ability to globally set the wireless environment channel plan, especially within 2.4Ghz space. At present although set to UK settings and in auto the system is selecting channel 13 which the upper frequencies stray into channel 14 which are not allowed in Europe. Ideally need to be able to select appropriate channel plan for AP's to follow. Adjusting a single AP is not an issue but for multiple the system should be dynamically calibrating correctly this selection.

  10. 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.

  11. Ability to select data rates

    It would be great to have the ability to select available data rates so lower rates can be disabled in order to optimize wireless performance.

  12. Ability to configure low signal drop off

    We all know Mac's don't support 802.11r fast transition, and instead do signal strength. Can we set the minimum receive RSSI to help force a device to a closer AP?

  13. Wireless Device Migration when AP overloaded

    In our environment we use more AP's than needed to help with device density issues. The average employee has 5 devices on our WiFi network, with our older Aerohive devices we moved away from we could specify max clients per AP, it would then steer the user to the next closest AP with available space. This allows for better overall performance and to allow for higher density AP's.

  14. Automatically Authenticate Users when disconnecting from NIC to Wifi

    To have the ability for a user to automatically authenticate when disconnecting from their NIC and connecting via wifi. At present, user needs to log out and back in to their laptop whilst on the wifi for STAS to register the user as being logged on to the wifi.

  15. XG105w supporting wireless 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.

  16. Wireless VLAN tagging

    Support teams have never been able to explain to me why VLAN tagging option is associated with an access point group. The configuration for VLAN traffic is within the wireless network configuration for each individual SSID so why have the option in group.
    This is very confusing if you are supporting multiple SSID's within a group which traffic is assigned to multiple secure VLANs. Can this oversight be removed or at least explained within the group page if different.

  17. Sophos Wireless AP Access Switch

    Create a new Sophos Wireless AP Product that incorporates a 4-5 LAN Port Switch.

    Other competitors have one, but I want it to be compatible with Sophos and have features like firewall exceptions and so forth for those ports.

  20. Wifi

    Automatically disable DFS when the transmit power is set to 50% or lower on the AP’s as is allowed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority

    Switch CH bandwidth between 20, 40 and 80HMz
