That above error message is frequently associated with another error message "%DOT11-6- DISASSOC: Interface Dot11Radio0, Deauthenticating Station

Reason: Sending station has left the BSS ". This occurs because of the Interference from the adjacent access point. So change the channel and adjust the excessive power on the access points so that there is no too much overlap on the access points coverage cells.
