by default, the LAPs send log infos to the broadcast address, 255.255.255.255. you should set this to your syslog-server, so that can be unicasted.


config ap syslog host global 1.2.3.4



otherwise your LAP-network will be flooded with broadcasts if something odd happens.

I haven't heard of this before.  Can you post the error message?
