Maybe you could explain what happens to the AP's ARP cache when it had duplicate entries then?

You are getting confused between a hub and an AP - yes an AP sends and recieves traffic in the SAME WAY a hub 
does.....but it is NOT a hub.

Does a hub have a DHCP server, ARP cache, understand 802.1x, WEP, WPA etc.....nope.

The only simalarity is that all hosts associated with the AP can recieve the traffic from the AP, as hosts would on a 
wired hub......other than that there is NO similarity at all.

Even if you can't grasp all of the above, just think of its ARP cache.....what happens when there is duplicate entries 
for a MAC address in an ARP cache.........
