You should not mix TKIP with dynamic WEP keys. This configuration is
likely to break your broadcast keys every 300 seconds.. You can verify
with 'hostap_crypt_conf -l wlan0' and 'cat /proc/net/hostap/wlan0/crypt'
that the broadcast keys (the once with non-zero keyidx; in
hostap_crypt_conf listing they are actually keys 2 and 3, in procfs file
1 and 2) look valid.

Some client implementations may have problems with mixed mode
configuration that allows both TKIP and CCMP for pairwise keys. If you
still see problems after removing those wep_* lines, I would also
consider disabling CCMP.
