invalid misc counts too high?

I have built a community network using hostap.
I find that it works pretty well but there are some problems...
there is a server ap that connects to the internet
there is also a repeater ap with 2 radios in a more central location
the server and repeater talk on channel 1
the repeater serves clients on channel 10
mostly it works fine but when I'm listening to streaming audio i'll get
cut off periodically (once every 5 or 10 minutes)
i notice that the invalid misc parameter increases by a couple of
thousand packets in a burst sometimes
i gathered this (unscientificially) over a period of about 10 minutes
are these values unusual? (this is on the backhaul link, i see about 1/4
of those numbers on the client link)
How can i diagnose the problem further?
What do you all use for tracking the status of a link over time ?
thanks for any suggestions!
