Security Cameras best network ideas

Fri Apr 21, 2017 9:59 am

I have Time warner cable for internet.
I have 18 network security cameras all cat5
The modem router is a Surfboard
From the Surfboard a CAT5 runs to a 24 port switch.
All my cameras are connected to the switch and I have 2 other 9 port switches from the 24 port switch
1 of the 9 port switches is in the garage to run like 5 cameras
2nd 9 port switch in the livingroom to PS4 and a Netgear Extender

I am wondering if it is better to run the cameras on it's own LAN separated from the Cable Modem Surfboard?

Like, run the internet from the Surfboard to PS4 and Computers on like
And connect a 2nd router out of the Surfboard to the 24 port switch to run only the cameras on with

Would that speed up the internet any or don't it matter the way I have it set up in the beginning?
