2 x Atheros Cards + VIA EPIA Mobo = Hard lock



I have a system with 2 Atheros Cards (1 generic oem & 1 wistron branded) installed on a VIA EPIA MS 8000E motherboard using a active pci riser card.
The system locks hard upon boot if the generic oem card is set to 802.11a hostap mode. I initially thought it was a irq issues so I diabled everything unused in the bios & pcibios0 attachment which made no difference. The generic card is defonately the cause of the problem as I've replaced it with another wistron card & everything has worked ok, unfortunately I dont have another generic card to see if the card is faulty or not. has anyone else come across any problems with atheros cards running in 802.11a hostap mode??
