Hi everybody,

I am checking the kernel logs on my main XT8 router and AiMesh XT8 node router and cannot find the reason for the many repeated error messages there.
Latest firmware version 3.0.0.4.386.43181 installed on both routers.
5GHZ-2 is used as Wi-Fi backhaul connection.

Here's part of the kernel log from the main router:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, on the AiMesh node router, the CFG80211-ERROR is repeated every hour as the key change interval (3600?) expires.
Can anyone explain to me what all these error messages mean?

Thanks!
