Seems everyone has focused on GE as the problem.  You can quickly rule that
out by looking at interface error counters and doing PING tests from the
wireless router/device to something on the local network on both sides.  If
OSPF is flapping because of missed HELLO packets then I'm thinking you have
a problem with either saturation on the link or actual wireless issues.
 When PING does work what do the times look like? I'd look at static routing
for a bit (if practical) or changing your OSPF HELLO intervals to see if
that does anything.  Here's a good link on troubleshooting
OSPF adjacency changes:
