WLC 5508 - wlan stability problems

Hi.

I have a WLC 5508 with half a dozen LAPs (AIR-CAP3502I-E-K9).

They have been working but sometimes clients detect conectivity problems with the wlan.

Here is the message log I can obtain from the controller:

Nov 09 12:16:31.886: [ERROR] pemTimers.c 330: invalid interface name (john_doe) in mscb!!!

*dot1xMsgTask: Nov 09 12:16:10.286: %DOT1X-3-MAX_EAPOL_KEY_RETRANS: 1x_ptsm.c:444 Max EAPOL-key M1 retransmissions exceeded for client 00:26:c6:12:e8:32

Previous message occurred 7 times.

Can somebody help me to understand these messages?
