Hello!

I have a simple question I think. I want to connect for example 24 IP Cameras with ethernet cable and want to use 4 Switches that has
8 ports each.

I wonder if it is possible to connect the swithes in a SERIAL manner like this. So I would have something like 24 or more contacts to use?

Switch1 -> Switch2 -> Switch3 -> Switch4 -> Router

Thank you

It does say ROUTER AND WOODWORKING DISCUSSION COMMUNITY right under Router Forums.com, at the top of the page. The router part means woodworking routers. So I'm confused. You talking about a woodworking router, or computer router?

Most switches will allow you to link to another switch, I don't know if you can go down multiple levels like that. In your example I would have a cable from switch 4 to each of the other switches, instead of daisy chaining them

This sounds like an excellent solution as you mention to link the other switches from switch 4 instead of chaining them.

Thank you for that info.

I might also wonder, if the switches has GB speed. Then the router must also have GB speed if I understand to not make the router a bottleneck?.
Are there routers with specification like this?
