Need to look into Linuxant:

1) Move wpa_supplicant binary to /usr/sbin/ and rename to “dldr_wpa_supplicant”
2) Move wpa_supplicant.conf to /etc/driverloader/ and rename to dldr_wpa_supplicant..conf, where interface is your interface name (mine was eth1)
3) Reboot

Tried adding pci=routeirq to boot parameters in /boot/grub/menu.lst
