So I am currently working on a project where I need the Edison to trigger a USB camera and send images to a ground station over a Ubiquit bullet data link. The camera triggering works perfectly ( I am utilizing a USB power splitter since the Edison can't power the camera). However, I also need it to simultaneously connect to the Bullet M5 as a USB station. The bullet is currently being powered by a separate source over POE (power over ethernet), and I attempted to use the J3Create USB3.0 to ethernet adapter (OTG) ( I assume it's ok since USB3.0 is backwards compatible to USB2.0) [http://www.j5create.com/our-products/ethernet-adapters/jue130.html http://www.j5create.com/our-products/ethernet-adapters/jue130.html] . However, the jcreate adaptor never lights up, so I attempted to use the same USB splitter method as the camera since maybe the edison can't power the adapter? and still there was no data being transmitted or power. I tried connecting the adapter both to the USB A port and micro-usb port, with no luck. However, I most likely need to connect it to the micro-usb port in host mode since the usb -A port is being utilized by the camera. Is there a way to connect the Bullet M5 station the edison? In addition, if it is,is possible to also connect the USB camera I am using too? (one through the USB-A port and one through a micro port)?

Thanks for your interest in the Intel® Edison Platform.
When the Intel Edison is selected in USB host mode, it always requires use of an external power adapter, we would like to request you a picture of the configuration you have made, this is in order to give you a better assistance.
We'll be waiting for your reply.
We would like to know if you still need assistance with this case, if this is the case, could you please share the configuration you are using?
