[netopia] 3347NWG-006 Can I use it without DSL for cameras?

We closed down a location and as a result I have an extra netopia 3347NWG-006 laying around. I also have some DLink DCS-5300 network cameras that we'd like to place throughout our current location to keep an eye on things. Could I use this extra netopia router just for the cameras and a single PC to monitor and record the feeds? And if so, could someone provide me with the search terms I'll need to google to learn how to do this?

Thanks!

Without dsl the 3347 can be used as a access point with 4 ethernet ports

So I need to research setting it up as an access point, thanks! I assume adding a switch won't cause any problems?!

All you need to do to the 3347 is disable it's dhcp server

Connecting a ethernet switch to the 3347 won't cause any problems

Oh we just have some network video cameras that we want to place throughout the buiding and I want to use the Netopia to connect them to a computer that will record the feeds.
