The wireless on our AP-4511's keep going in and out. After checking the logs I see hundreds of ip-mac conflicts. For example:

Jan 26 15:57:29 192.168.3.177 2014-07-20T18: 52:30.%02u-04:00 ap4511-63DFFC %DATAPLANE-4-IPMACCONFLICT: IP-MAC CONFLICT: Conflict in ip-mac binding between packet and snoop table data : Vlan = 1, Pkt Src Mac: C0-BD-D1-26-56-29, Pkt Dst Mac: 00-04-96-52-36-EF, Pkt Dst IP : 192.168.10.3, Snoop Table Mac: 4C-EB-42-82-2C-CE, Snoop Table IP: 192.168.10.3 .

192.168.10.3 is our DNS server

The snoop table MAC is one of our laptops. That laptops network settings all check out. It still appears in the logs when I disable that NIC too. We have a master AP as a dhcp server.  

What could be causing this?  This one laptop seems to be the culprit, but it looks like it is preventing other machines from getting to the DNS.

Where ever a static ip address is located, it has to be configured as a trusted port.
I always recommend configuring the ports of any AP into a trusted state.
All it takes is for someone to assign a static IP to a wireless NIC and the port is locked down
