      • Wireless: Reboot / Restart of Access Points

        Ability to restart a connected wireless access point from the ASG web interface. Sometimes I find they are not working corrected and need to be rebooted/restart/powercycled. It would be nice if this could be done remotely, right from the web interface.

        • Guest WLAN (Hotspot) - "DHCP Address Assignment Required" Option

          If guests change their IP adresses, it is not possible to track them in the logs. After a simple IP change, we have no possibility to connect an IP address to a MAC and then to a Voucher/Guest. So you can bypass the logging. This is an importion feature for guest wlan / hotspot feature!

              • Wireless Protection: Option to log voucher number within web surfing activity

                A great thing would be also the log every access to a website with the voucher number information. So it's possible to track illegal surfing attempts to a user based on the voucher provided to them.

                • Authentication: Use Wireless Credentials for other UTM modules

                  Passing the authentication credentials from 802.1X WPAx enterprise authentication to other UTM modules would enable seamless SSO for wirelessly connected devices and would be particularly useful for authentication of mobile devices.

                    • Wireless Protection: Give vouchers an expiration period or an expiration date

                      It should be possible to give hotspot vouchers an expiration period in the voucher definition so that they get a fixed expiration date when they are created.
                      After the expiration date the voucher should be disabled (and maybe automatically deleted) no matter if it is in use or not. The expiration date should be shown in the user portal and printed on the voucher.

                      This is important to us because we create an amount of vouchers for our guests when they visit us. Some guests use it some not. Some vouchers lie around for an amount of time. At the…

                        The UTM should be able to detect rogue access points surreptitiously added to the network.

                        • Enhance Wireless Reporting

                          There is still a lot left which could be added to the existing wireless reporting:

                          - more information about clients: who authenticated, at what AP, when?
                          - reporting of failed client authentications, and usable reason (wrong password, ...)
                          - live bandwidth monitor for clients
                          - report user names when an authentication backend was used
                          - email notification when AP is disconnected for more than 5 minutes

                                  • Wireless: Support for IPv6

                                    Currently APs can only have an IPv4 address. I am not sure what would happen on an IPv6 only network.
                                    The APs need to be updated to use IPv6 as well as IPv4. The WS tabs only show the IPv4 address of the client devices (laptops etc)

                                      • Synchronization Password of the Day with WiFi PSK

                                        It would be good if you could synchronize the daily password automatically with the PSK of the guest WLAN.

                                        • Hotspot redirection also on HTTPS access

                                          Currently a user gets only redirected to the hotspot page, if he tries to access anything via HTTP. Please make this work also for HTTPS access.
