Host AP verifies STA activity every five minutes by sending a poll frame
to the STA. If STA does not reply, it will be disassociated. It looks
like this verification is not working in your setup. Which station
firmware version are you using? Are you using hostapd or only kernel
driver for 802.11 management?
