The Known Issues List has been updated with a new IPS problem. We have received reports of issues with IPS causing connection problems with wireless network adapters.
In some cases the wireless connection is broken all the time, in other installations we've seen intermittent connection issues. Connections with wired Ethernet are not affected.
To solve the issue you can simply switch off the IPS setting in Central:
As we are still trying to fully understand the issue, sending us SDU logs is much appreciated.
Update: We have found the root cause. While we are still interested in learning if you're affected, we do not need more SDU logs.

Unfortunately that is not yet the case. We have found the root cause of the Wi-Fi issue, and are working on a fix, but it has not been released yet.
This release has nothing new with regards to the components in the EAP. We will update the EAP soon, but i will announce this in the forum so you are aware of any changes beforehand.
Understood, thanks! I was just itching to test the Wifi fix.
Just got 2.0.16 Intercept X update on my test clients --- any idea as to fixes we can look for (specifically the wifi issue)?
Just a quick reply as Stephen has answered your question here as well: https://community.sophos.com/products/intercept/early-access-program/f/feedback-and-issues/116564/new-version-released-and-installed-any-updates-as-to-fixes-in-this-version.
This release updates Intercept X components, see this blog post: https://community.sophos.com/products/intercept/early-access-program/b/blog/posts/enhanced-protection-eap-extended-with-new-intercept-x-features. These features are silent in a first phase, we'll update you when they go live.
We'll keep you informed on any updates for AMSI and IPS (and Intercept X).
