Hello,

About what you mention are some codes which mentions the following:

- 33    "GPFs MISS", - SM missed the Group Poll Frame resulting in SM disassociation - Check for quality of radio connection to ensure that polling information is not lost over a compromised link.

- 32    "NO ALLOCATION ON AP",  - The SM has not been polled by the AP for 400 frames - Check for quality of radio connection to ensure that polling information is not lost over a compromised link.

- 16    "INA RETRIES EXHAUSTED",   - The SM sends Initial Network Access (INA) frames to the AP for network entry, if the SM does not receive the INA response frame, a set number of INA requests are resent. If no INA response frame is received at the SM, the SM initiates network entry with next AP (based on configuration of Preferred AP LIst) or reinitiates registration with first AP after a back-off timer expires. - Conduct a site survey at the SM to determine if poor link quality is causing a lack of INA response being received at the SM

You can draw your own opinion.

Regards,

Florin
