Symbol AP-5131 connection failures


Having a few issues with a Motorola/Symbol Wireless AP (model AP-5131) where, for whatever reason, the WAP is set up and working great, and the first time you ever introduce a laptop or wifi connection to it, it works fine.

But once the PC either shuts down, reboots, or goes to sleep -- that PC can never again reconnect to the AP-5131 until the WAP itself has POE removed and plug it back in. On the client side it simply says "Unable to connect" even in the log files, but there's no reason for it that I can see.

Even going into the AP-5131 and setting the logging verbosity to high, nothing really stands out about why it's refusing connections from MAC addresses it's already touched.

Has anyone else had this problem? Anyone have a solution?
