Soundblaster Live! and Netgear PCI card conflict

I have an Abit V17 MB, Pentium 4-2.8 G, 512K Mem,
I have installed my NetGear WG311 V2 PCI Adapter, which talks to a Netgear Access Point.
As soon as I installed the PCI card, there was a conflict between this card and my Sound Blaster Live! CT4760 Sound card.  I can remove the sound card, and everything seems to be fine.  The network seems to be functioning.  The access point is connected to a Direcway (2-way satellite) modem by ethernet cable.  If I put the sound card in, sometimes I can get booted up and it gets installed, however, the system soon freezes.  At other times, the system freezes just before the welcome melody plays and I get a high pitched stutter.  
How do I fix this?

Change the DMA setting from the device manager.

You could also change the DMA setting of the NIC card.

The problem, if anything, is an IRQ conflict.  However, both these devices are on different IRQ's.  I checked the DMA settings, and niether device uses a DMA setting.  This answer did not help me with my problem.  No other answers have been provided, so I cannot award points.
I finally removed the Sound Blaster card and enabled the on-board sound.  This eliminated the problem.
