This should be pretty straight forward, but I must be missing something...

We have just purchased a mini NVR 16 that has 4 POE ports.  We also purchased an 8-port POE switch.  The NVR came up fine, cameras connected to the NVR POE ports are fine, but I can't seem to get it to recognize the POE switch or anything connected to it.

This is a standalone camera/nvr system and not connected to the outside world or even anything else in the local LAN.  The NVR retains its default IP address of 192.168.1.108 and I can connect to its web service with a laptop (thanks to other posters who explained THAT whole process).

I have tried standard patch cable link-port to link-port, a crossover cable (same ports), Link port to switch port, vice versa.  Even tried setting up intermediate LAN switch to connect them both to.  Everything looks like it SHOULD be working, just not seeing anything on the POE switch.

I wanted to see if anybody else has run into this or if you have any suggestions.

Have you made sure to set each device to have a different static IP first?

All the cameras and NVR come with the same IP address. It looks like you need to statically assign the addresses to the cameras to be different. Just connect computer and 1 camera try statically assign your pc to an ip address 192.168.1.2, set gateway to 192.168.1.1. You should be able  to log in. If you cannot check the lights on the POE to make sure they reflect connection on that port. Next reset camera and retry.  Keep me posted on what happens.

Thanks for the suggestions...will continue with that.  What I would like to confirm though is the type of cable I need in order to connect the link port on the NVR directly to the link port on the POE switch.  Is it a standard path cable or does it need to be a cross-over cable?
