Connect cameras to XB6 via Link PoE Switch

Just upgraded to XB6 Gateway and trying to re-establish wired connection to 3 PoE security cameras.  The cameras are connected via ethernet cable to a T-Link PoE 10/100Mbps switch which is in turn connected (using a non-PoE port on the switch) to a port on the XB6.  I cannot see or connect the cameras.  


I am able to see the cameras if I connect the switch to an Airport Extreme Time Machine and then connect the AP Extreme to the XB6.  I'm trying to eliminate the AP Extreme since my internet speeds are much slower with the AP Extreme in the network.


Any ideas?


I'm thinking a new Gigabit PoE switch may solve the problem.
