Specs: Windows XP
I have 1 Broadband DSL LAN with 1 IP from my ISP. I have a Linksys WRT150N wireless Router. and an additional 5port gigabit ethernet Router. I want to connect (Via Cat5 Cable) x8 IP Cameras, a Home PC, and a Security System Gateway. I also have x3 laptops and an Xbox trying to connect wirelessly throught the Linksys.
Whats the best way to do this. Each IP Camera needs it's own IP address.

You have everything you need. Just do static ip assignments/or ip reservation in the routers dhcp server for the cameras and gateway. Pretty standard setup.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Thanks Wanderer, Just a follow up question.
The total Ports available are 10 to include the x2 I need to connect the DSL and additional Router, leaving 8, thats 2 short for the Security gateway and PC, Can I daisy cahin an additional Router or should I just get an 8port Switch?
If I can Dasiy Cahin, In the Main Wireless Router, when I go to the DHCP server, when it shows the client list, Do i just just add All the IP's for the Cams and Computers I need dedicated service for, and add to the Reserved list and then they should all be good? Will the additional (Netgear 5port) Router(s) cause DHCP conflicts?
