Hello!

I have a question about how an IP Camera affects the bandwidth/speed of the router/internet.

The scenario would be for a hotel like this:
I would have 20 IP Cameras connected with ethernet cabel to a Switch which in turn would be connected
to the router. (So they do not use any Wifi. Only connected with ethernet cable)

So the IP Cameras will be accessible and looked at from a PC on the local network. (Never from the outside from any external IP)

Now I wonder if one would stream 5,10,15,20 cameras at the very same time. Does this affect ther internet speed if other
people uses the WIFI connection to surf on the internet as usual?

I hope I did explain this well :)

Yes, we have routers here N/a, but they are for woodworking and do not communicate with cameras.

However, some of this group is also very knowledgeable about the communication form of routers, so maybe you will get an informed response from one of them.

Not really enough information here to answer. It really comes down to the resolution and the framerate of each camera being used, as well as the overall bandwidth of the network and wifi. And while the cameras themselves aren't on WIFI, if the client device is, it is still eating up that bandwidth. However, at the end of the day, if your network is well structured, you should be able to do this with minimal impact noticeable by your end users.

I also try to connect IP cameras with my router. But I tried with 14 cameras. But couldn't do that using so many methods. So if anyone have solution about this then help me by telling this.

To be honest, yes it will affect bandwidth, just in varying amounts. You also likely need specialist software to be able to see the feeds and record.
You're in the wrong forum for this though, as this is a woodworking forum :)

I presume all your cameras have been granted a different IP address? Are they actually getting an IP address from the router?
Make sure the switch is allowing all the traffic too.
