Received the "DOT11-6-ADD: Interface [interface], Station [mac] Associated to Parent [mac]" error message


This message appears with the Workgroup Bridge or Repeater or an individual client when they associate or reassociate  with the access point.

This message  indicates frequent disconnection and reassociation of a client device. As a workaround

1. Change the channel number to avoid potential RF interference issues.

2. Check for the authentication configured

3. Either downgrade to a previous version or upgrade the image of the client device.

Note: Increase the client timeout on the access point to make the client devices stay associated for a longer time. and see of ot makes the difference.
