I'm getting frequent disconnections with the above mentioned reason when running wpa_supplicant. This occurs even if I kept on  sending ping requests to the access point. This is not triggered by the access point itself this is generated by the client station side. Is this happening due to  a bug ?

d4:ca:6d:11:b9:08 - client station running wpa_supplicant (an OpenWrt platform)
 00:24:a5:b4:c1:5b - access point running hostapd (an DD-wrt platform)
sample iw trace
