Other: SSID and Auth_not_A

Any one has any experience with this behavior:

If I reboot the client it will connect for a few seconds but then it will lose its IP and go to this state.  "show dot11 association" will show it under Other SSID.  And it just won't connect back.

The Auth_not_A is a state

The Auth_not_A is a state where the client start the authentication process, but never
follow up with association. This can happen if you have some bad coverage.

Time for site survey.

Unfortunately, it doesn't gives a very good idea and clear explanation, due to which a documentation bug was filed to have these clearly defined : 

CSCef63194    need to document the state in show dot11 association

Than you probably want to run

Than you probably want to run the debug to see why the client is not able to join. Check debug document here.
