on a previous post somebody (40th floor i think) suggested i use a gigbit poe switch with my multiple poe megapixel cams. lets pretend my router has 6 poe ports, would a 6 port poe switch be better?

my concern is that my home network speed will become slow as heck with many cams. will a network switch prevent this? if so, how?

I think you refer to network HUB and not Switch. Hubs are not made any more, very hard to find, old networks.. Also router is also a switch (plus other network services)..

So.. POE or No-POE 8 ports are network switch these days. What you should consider is managed or non-managed switch.. Managed switch are twice as expensive..

Hello,

I had to add a switch when my camera count went above 4 (VGA). I also created a seperate subnet as the continuous camera activity throttled all my bandwidth to my regular PC's if all on the same subnet.

I purchased a Netgear switch with 12 POE ports and 12 'regular" ports. So far I really like it. I then added a second network card to the PC that hosts the CCTV software. One card goes to my camera netgear switch and one card goes to my regular router. That way I have internet access to the CCTV PC so that it can serve data to the Web interface for the CCTV software.

I would think that 6 Megapixel cameras are going to need a similar setup. Thats more bandwidth than I was using and my network was almost unusable.

HTH, Magohn

Refer to this link
http://www.networkcamerareviews.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3512&highlight=

your options:
2 networks (192.168.0.* and 192.168.1.*) or managed switches

Do look in to managed switches. Have seen them do great jobs on server farms, should work on IP cams as well (same traffic)

I would separate my network, create 2 independent networks..

Creating link between these two will require some IT skills or "2 wan port" router (not cheap, have used SnapGear in past)... Other option if you are using PC as NVR, have 2 NIC cards..

If you are in to IT, then flash home router with DD-WRT firmware, and then active Vlan port, to link 2 networks (non PC NVR version)..

example of 2 WAN port gizmo
