You'd probably have to enable debugging in the driver to find out.  This
event is simply a generic WEXT "you're disconnected".  If you're
actually using a mac80211 driver, you might see more info in 'dmesg' but
if it's an old non-mac80211 driver then you're out of luck unless you
start debugging the driver.
