Can anyone help decipher what this means in the log? We are having frequent disconnects on wireless cameras. Any help is appreciated!

Hi Kyle,

from the logs, i have two observations to make which may be the reason for your troubles

1. Camera is connecting to the AP with poor signal strength hence connection is expected to be unstable and frequent disconnects
2. Try OPEN or simpler encrpyption like WEP just for Testing to see if this issue goes off or not as i am suspecteding re-keying issue right after handshake.

Hope this helps

Thank you for your response. I will try some testing here this week. The strange thing is that this is a replacement unit as the first one died, and there weren't issues with the first one. I am wondering if it is a configuration issue of some sort.
