[clug] Flaky wireless

My logs are getting filled with the following:
[  145.764062] wlan0: deauthenticated (Reason: 7)
[  147.780276] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1b:xx:xx:xx:xx try 1
[  147.782821] wlan0 direct probe responded
[  147.782843] wlan0: authenticate with AP
[  147.785784] wlan0: authenticated
[  147.785800] wlan0: associate with AP
[  147.788354] wlan0: RX ReassocResp from  (capab=0x411 status=0 aid=1)
[  147.788372] wlan0: associated

And then I lose the connection to/from my box for 5 minutes (strangely
enough it's the FitPC...)

I can't find any solid info on what "Reason 7" is. I'm wondering whether
it's my access point playing up as my Macbook occasionally used to lose the
connection for a similar amount of time (and it couldn't see the AP)

I've tested both with the internal card (rt3090 driver) and an external USB
stick (rt2x00). Both are similarly flaky.
Any ideas?
