How do I connect a coaxial cable to an RJ-45 connector?
My customer has a wired network. One part is coaxial (honeycomb type), the
other is CAT6. Nine locations are independently wired back to a hub rather than series circuits.
The coaxial system returns to an amplifier to which satellite, digital TV and cable are attached.
The CAT6 hubs to an RJ-45 16 output box. I am trying to connect a coax cable through an adaptor to
an RJ-45 connector but I can't find the technology. I also want to split the RJ-45 to at least nine
to change their computer LAN to wired rather than wireless. I can't find this technology
Coaxial to RJ-45 converters are available from many sources: Red Orbit, Computers

Any standard HUB or switch with an uplink port will allow you to split out a single CAT5 or CAT6
cable to multiple RJ-45 outputs. If you already have a HUB or switch, but it doesn't have an uplink
port, use a crossover cable to
connect it to your original RJ-45 port.
