Motion - Bug Report 2012x 10x 16x 201444

BUG: internet conflict with motion.

Sinply put, when I launch the motion program, my connection to the internet gets killed. The motion program itself runs fine. But I have to re-connect to the internet so see the outside world again.

In my x-windows dropdown, motion gets initiated with the command /usr/local/bin/motion&
Then I launch a url that displays the motion on my local web browser, which is seamonkey.
Then file is /var/www/htdocs/file.html
The code in "file.html" is

<html>
  <head>
  <META HTTP-EQUIV="pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="30">
  </head>
  <body bgcolor="black" text="white" link="yellow" vlink="red">
    <center>
      <h1>Ed's WebCam Yes!</h1>
      <img src="http://localhost:8080/" width="960" height="720">
    </center>
  </body>
</html>

And the /root/.motion/motion .conf file is:

webcam_port 8080
webcam_localhost off
threshold_tune off
threshold 1500
ffmpeg_cap_new on
webcam_motion on
webcam_maxrate 100
#width 1600
#height 1200
width 960
height 720
max_mpeg_time 0
#quality 100
ffmpeg_bps 800000
#snapshot_interval 60
target_dir /root/motion_pics
output_normal off

Environment
