You guys should have quoted me!
I didn't think the camera would need its own public IP address. I'm using an Arduino (
) to serve a page, in which I want to embed streaming video from the camera; I thought I could use the camera's local IP address because that's what the Arduino would be seeing... is that right? I haven't tested it yet, I need to order a camera.

A router is generally for routing data from one distinct subnet (or VLAN) to another.
Polarity, if you need the two client devices to have unique IPs, you're going to need a configurable router - not something that you'd use at home - those devices are just switches with a WAN interface. You need a router with 3 configurable Ethernet interfaces and NAT capabilities.
How does a configurable router allow unique IPs? This could be useful as there is a group of us who are all trying to connect our devices to the internet, and we're running out of money.
I thought a router would be more useful than a switch because then I'd have just a little control of the IP addresses.

Gettin' technical eh?
A bog standard switch could work depending on the university setup I guess.
Could I turn a standard router into a configurable one with this?

That's sort of what I was thinking and you can do that with DD-WRT
Edit: I don't know if you've read this post yet, but I've spent the evening reading about DD-WRT and finding a router, and thinking about how to save money and connect several boards to one router, and I think I have an idea! Does it sound... legit?
○ After the go ahead from the university ISP
○ Give the router a dynDNS address (probs No-IP)
○ Use port forwarding in router firmware to redirect to different Arduinos
§ e.g. port 80, 192.168.0.91 for mine
§ Port 81, 192.168.0.92 for someone else's etc.
To get to a specific Arduino, add the right port number to the dynDNS address (all links will probably be made available)

Reason: An idea!
