Hmm, I might be missing something basic here. All my cams are connected to a PoE switch.,This switch is connected to the router. The router also has two other connections, i.e. one to a non-POE switch and one to the computer that records all the videos from the cams. So am I doing something wrong?Your network should be configured so that when not viewing remotely either at home or when away, that no camera traffic goes through the switch on the router.
Simple setup: All Cameras plugged into POE switch. Bi computer plugged into same poe switch as cams. One cable from same Poe switch to the router.
