Installed GS105 downstream of Belkin router. Verizon cell extender and an IP camera can't seem to negotiate a network connection through the switch. Direct TV console and A/V reciever can.
Belkin N router is primary - it feeds another Belkin router (access point mode) for desktop and verizon cell extender on one side of home. Installed a GS105v4 on the other end of the home to connect DirectTV console, A/V receiver, verizon cell extender (moved from previous location), and an IP camera. Switch appears to work, I can see the DirectTV, A/V receiver, and cell extender but no IP camera. Cell extender can't complete the negotiation with the network.

Re: Installed GS105 downstream of Belkin router. Verizon...
Don't use multiple routers in-line. Use just the one router connected to your ISP's modem, and then from there use Ethernet switches instead of routers. You're making a hash of your network by using dual NATs.

The easiest way I can think of is to shrink the DHCP address pool.
To do that, at least on the model of Actiontec router I have, click on "Network (Home/Office)" the go to the "IP Address Distribution" section of the screen. "DHCP Server" should already be selected, and under that, you'll find "Start IP addresses" and "End IP addresses." Usually, the start will be 192.168.1.2 and the end will be 192.168.1.254. What I usually do is change the start address to 192.168.1.200. That leaves over 50 addresses for normal wireless connections, and I'll general assign IP addresses from the rest of the range as follows:
192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.9: routers, APs, etc.
192.168.1.50 to 192.168.1.59: printers
192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.109 for other static devices. (I often find that Blu-Ray players, cable boxes, etc. behave better if they have a static address.)
But really, on home network, I doubt you'll have more than 15 devices that need static addresses, so you could set the DHCP start address as low as 192.168.1.16 if you wanted to.
Being that your other computers in the network are working properly, you should switch the ip settings on your comnputer to automatically detect. That way your computer does all the routing and ip setting,
After you have set that back. Remove the power of your router, remove the power of your modem, and restart your computer.
Once your computer is back up, turn on modem, then the router.
It sounds very simple, but in most cases, it solves the problem.
please do not assign dynamic IP on the network printer. give a static IP on it base on your network config. and also, please do assign all you computers on the network with static IP's so that every time they boot there will be no IP conflict or problem on the network connection.
Why did you change it from dynamic to static? My suggestion would be to put it back to dynamic and let it grab a good ip address from the gateway. The other option is to contact whoever managed the network at your apartment and see what they will charge you for a static IP address.
You need to connect the camera directly to your computer and have it manually assign an IP Address on your computer so you could access the camera on the first hand.After that you need to range the IP Address of the camera accordingly to the IP Address of your network.
