Question Kernal disabling irq channels

I've just installed a f5d7000 belkin wireless card with the ralink rt2500 chip and lan port built into my motherboard (asustek NetXtreme Bcm5702X gigabit ethernet) they both use the same irq channel ( 10 ) whenever using the internet for significant sized downloads (or at random intervals) the kernal will shut down the irq channel that is used by the network devices. Note: I only use the wireless card. I am using SuSE 9.2 with kernel version 2.6.8-24.17. Thanks

Is there anything more in /var/log/messages? Or only this?

There is a box which pops up saying

<the date>:
Message from kernel:
Disabling irq#10

Then the the wireless card stops working (i.e the lights switch off)
