Your first association was using 802.11b/g, and your second was using 802.11a. The difference is not necessarily that there is anything wrong with the first AP, but rather simply the difference in performance, interference, etc. between b/g and a.

For further debugging if necessary:
BSSID 00:1a:1e:c0:e8:1e is ssid ietf frequency 802.11g AP: 00:1a:1e:8e:81:e1
BSSID 00:1a:1e:8e:7a:90 is ssid ietf-a frequency 802.11a AP: 00:1a:1e:c0:e7:a8
