Hi peeps!

I have an issue i need help from some more experianced Networking peeps.

I have a CCTV system i need to install.

Items in system:

6x 1280x800 HD IP PoE cameras
1x Switch with PoE on all 8 ports (made to go with 8 cameras)
1x Belkin N1 Wireless Router

Now then... This network ... What cables do i use? the power is supposed to go over the RJ45... easy enough..

I have read that i need Crossed cables between the router and switch and Straight-thru ones for the Switch to the cameras???

But then there are ones made for PoE.. with there own color codeing!

i have all the wireing done in the house with Standard Cat5.e i have terminated the ends with simple Straight through cable ends..

Does anyone know What i need?

Basically im asking:
What cables do i need to make to do each task... example:

Router ------------- switch

Switch ------------- Each cam's

Switch ------------- PC to see cam's

please help!

My Rig:

Power over Ethernet (PoE):
Power over Ethernet has been implemented in many variations before IEEE standardized 802.3af. 802.3af specifies the ability to supply an endpoint with 48V DC at up 350mA or 16.8W. The endpoint must be capable of receiving power on either the data pairs [Mode A] (often called phantom power) or the unused pairs [Mode B] in 100Base-TX. PoE can be used with any ethernet configuration, including 10Base-T, 100Base-TX and 1000Base-T. Power is only supplied when a valid PoE endpoint is detected by using a low voltage probe to look for the PoE signature on the endpoint. PoE power is typically supplied in one of two ways, either the host ethernet switch provides the power, or a "midspan" device is plugged in between the switch and endpoints and supplies the power. No special cabling is required.

Believe normal cat5/cat6 cables are fine.

Hope that helps. ;)

Standard cabling is absolutely fine for PoE to work.

Re crossover cables, do you have any uplink ports on your router/switch(s)?
