Unhappy udev: disabling IRQ #20 (or #21)

EDIT [sorry - I posted this in the wrong forum - please post answers in this thread ( to keep things in the correct place for future searches]

I've been having trouble getting my linksys wireless pci card working, and also having difficulties with my Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Not sure if they're related to each other or the udev message regarding IRQ disablement - but it seems to be that way.

I'm using the Linksys WMP300N through ndiswrapper - which is currently loaded but not working properly - if I completely remove everything and do a straight install and config based on the instructions on the ndiswrapper site, it will work with wpa_supplicant. If I load the module at boot time, the kernel throws a wobbly when wpa_supplicant tries to start.

so... can anyone provide me with some guidance on how to determine if there is an IRQ clash/issue or how I can ensure that udev doesn't disable the IRQ for the hardware I need etc.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
