A1200 + Blizzard + PCMCIA instability


I have the following setup:

Amiga 1200
Blizzard 1230 IV with 16MB RAM
Linksys WPC11 v2.5 PCMCIA WiFi card
Kickstart 3.1
Workbench 3.1 "Cloanto"

The system becomes very unstable when I start WirelessManager when the Blizzard is active. Attempting to transfer a file via FTP will lock up the machine, as will starting most games, and the system will also lock up randomly while in Workbench. Using the Blizzard or the WiFi separately, I haven't seen any lock ups at all.

I tried CardPatch and CardReset, but they don't seem to make any difference. I also tried the PSU from my A500 in case Blizzard + WiFi was demanding too much power, but that also didn't make any difference. As a test I removed the Blizzard RAM, but that didn't help either.

I understand that the 1230 IV is "PCMCIA-friendly", so in theory I should be able to use them together. Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong here?
