Hello,

 

I have connected ip cams and access points directly to my pc before. All I did was:

Plug into pc

Change the gateway to same one set in the device.

Change the ip to similar as ip set up in the device

Change subnet to 255.0.0.0

Type in ip of device into browser.

 

This works no problem. But this time I want to connect 2 ip cams at the same time to my pc. If I connect the 2 cams to a switch and then directly to my pc without a router would this work as long as I give the 2 cams a different ip but same gateway or do I need a router?

If you set Cam2's static IP within the same range as the original Cam 1, on the same subnet you wont need to be DHCP served so no..... as stated above, you wont need a router providing all hardware is cabled and switched correctly.
