Hello everyone,

Just got everything in to install a single cam(for now) and have setup a PC solely to run BI. Now I am not sure what's best as far as running my ethernet. My modem has 1 port on it which is going to my router. My question is, should both my POE switch and BI PC be running back to my router or can I go from my router to POE switch and out of POE switch to BI PC? I'm trying to figure out what would be best. Thanks!

Connecting the bi pc to the p o e switch is actually preferred...
