Re: Bridge resetting

Two things I can think of:
- Make sure the wireless bridge gets the 5V from the DC-DC converter that converts 12V to 5V and not directly from the 5V that was meant to be for the camera. Since you said you did use the 5V meant to be for the camera, that's probably the reason. When the motor runs, it may cause this 5V output to drop which will cause the D-Link to reboot.
- Did you buy and make your own D-Link power connector or did you cut the power connector from the original D-Link power adapter and reuse that? There is a possibility if you buy your connector that it did not have the correct inner diameter so you may not have a good power connection to the D-Link. Then you will have intermittent power loss of the D-Link causing it to reboot.
