losing connectivity to network while using Cisco Aironet 1260

We have 2 Aironet 1260 Access Points in our shop. Both are hard wired to our core switch in the office. For some reason, just about all of our wireless devices lose the ability to ping different devices on the network at random times of the day. I have witnessed the problem. I have verified that the computer is not losing wireless connectivity. I can also still ping the wap that it is connected to. I can even ping our firewall. However, i can no longer ping most other devices that are on the wired network including our servers. It's almost as if the access point is blocking traffic to certain devices for a short period of time. For example, I could be pinging one of our wireless printers and all of the sudden, for about 10 minutes, I can no longer ping the printer. After about 5-10 minutes, I can ping the printer again. All computers on the wireless are experiencing this issue so I have to imagine that there is something going on with the WAP.
