Okay I have to know if a CAT5 swith will work for my application. I currently have one CAT 5 cable that is wired directly from my sony SNC-RZ25N IP camera to my linksys route where I have port forwarding in order to view this camera via the net, but now I have a second camera of which I have assign a static IP address too. Each camera has a lenght of CAT 5 cable coming from them. I want to route both of the cameras into a CAT 5 swith and then send that data down the single CAT5 cable that I have going from the router to the swith. Can this be done.

So lets review this. I have two IP cameras with different IP address that I want to feed into a swith and then have the information from both camera feed down a single CAT5 to my router where I will have prot forwarding for the IP of each camera.

I want to view both of these camera by using MS Explorer.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Sounds like you have it right.
Ethernet switches (with a "C") allow many network devices to access the network simultaneously.
The physical connectivity stuff is the easy part.
Since you are probably already using port 80 for one of the cams, you cannot use it again, assuming you only have a single public IP address. You will need to use another port, such as 81 (but you can use almost anything less than 65,536).
You will then either need to change the cam's port to 81 as well, or have the Linksys translate from port 81 on the outside to port 80 on the inside (something I don't think Linksys boxes can do?).

I use 2006 for my one IP camera and plan on using 80 for my other. On the Stardot box I don't think I can change ports. I will look in the configuration to see if that can be done. So it looks like maybe the switch will work. Wish me luck.

Thanks
