stations don't connect, log ?

Hi,
I've sort of newbie question: Is there any way to find in some log 
what's going on when
a station is connecting to hostap (mdk rpm version 0.0.4 running on up 
to date updated
Mandrake 9.2). Everything seems fine and up but no station can connect, 
they find
strong signal, find essid, but when they try to connect, nothing 
happens. I was trying to
search web for some info on hostap logging but failed to find any 
detailed information
except obvious /var/log/syslog stuff. Maybe some kind of increased log 
level exists ?

Thanks in advance,
Karel Rericha
