I can't help you with the firewire stuff, but on the wireless side:

If two cards are 'stacked' they will interfere with each other, regardless of channel setting. I was told (I'm foggy on the details) that it's because the cards have like a 40mhz carrier frequency they use internally.

However, two cards right _next_ to each other works ok.

I've used stacked cards with about ~1 inch between them with a far amount of success; the speed was impacted, but not by much. There was a pcb between each card, which I'm sure probably helped.

As for 'does this combo work with two cards in one adapter', I can't really help you. I was using separate controllers/boards for each. (rg1000's running linux). for photos.
