Switch duplex problem

We had a strange problem that happened yesterday. On the edge of our network, we have a wireless network consisting of Aironet 1410 bridges. The bridges wireless interfaces were going up and down a lot for some reason. Everytime they would drop out, random ports on all of our Catalyst switches in the entire network would turn orange and go down for a few seconds and then they would come back up. It seemed to randomly happen only on ports connected to phones or computers. It never seemed to happen on trunk uplink ports. Basically, it was taking the entire network down for a few seconds at a time everytime those bridges would associate. This occurred until we shut down that part of the network. I was wondering if anyone else ever had problems like this out of their switches. We are mainly a switched network with 3750's, 3560's, 3550's and a couple of 2960's.
