Cisco Wireless Controller 4402 Clients dropping connection

We are using a Cisco 4402 wireless controller in one of my facilities and havent had a very good experience.  The clients connect wirelessly to the network and since I put this controller in, I am seeing clients drop connections. The connections will intermittently drop and then reconnect. Of course when this happens they lose their terminal sessions and other network or system access. Prior to this the aps were all autonomous and there were no problems with wireless connectivity but since the addition of the controller, we have seen several issues.  What could cause this? I have included some network info and the traps from today below.

What do you mean you reconfigured your LAG?  We're having the same issues.  Right now I have my LAG setup for mirroring.
