Hi,

just received my XGS1250-12 devices and found out that LACP & RSTP support is surprisingly lacking. 

Are there plans to add support for LACP and Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP)?

I also have a GS1900-8 which supports both.

Thanks & best.

    XGS1250 is for the soho users, the LAG is the static link, as the request LACP, RSTP with 2.5/10 (multi Giga) is the enterprise level then XS1930 series will fit this case.

    Hello @nitro,
    It's about the product position, our XGS1250 is the entry-level smart managed switch with the basic features compared to the more premium GS1900 series which is for SMB, hope you can understand.  :)

    well what would be an equivalent product offering support for 2.5G / 10G in the SMB segment? Pricing wise I don't understand the positioning of the XGS1250, but I really don't want argue about your product segmentation here :)

    I've read in another thread that there is at least a beta firmware available which offers support for LACP. Can you PM me with the download link?

    Hello @nitro,
    There is a misunderstanding since we only have the datecode to support LAG (static link aggregation) for port 9 and port 10 group, it's not LACP.

    @Zyxel_Chris the question "what would be an equivalent product offering support for 2.5G / 10G in the SMB segment?" seem still unanswered.
