Yes it is being accessed in IO mode; your hardware cannot configure
the card in True IDE mode.

You showed what you do to use the wireless part; but you did not show
what you do to access the flash part.  What do you do exactly, and
what error do you get when you try to use both?

Any chance you could plug this card into a laptop and try this?  Also
try "dump_cis -v".

This is while the flash part is working?  How does it look when the
wireless part is working?
