Are you trying to put both interfaces on the same network (both have the
same net mask)? That is problematic. Otherwise there is no trouble with
multiple cards. My wireless network is different from my wire one, so it
'just works'. with two cards. In fact, in our products, we always have
two cards - and two different networks.

Having said that, there is one small issue with YasT that has been this
way for years. It will not let you give different names to the cards.
After assigning the system name, it is applied to both cards. So, you
need to edit /etc/hosts and give one card (IP address) a different name.
That is the only issue I have ever had.
