Making my own cable-to-cat5 adaptor
I use to make my own printer cables years ago and never had a problem with it. Right now I have the need for an adaptor that is female coax on one end, and male cat5 on the other. Any idea what I need to know to pull this off? I have the cables and wire strippers. Thanks to all in advance.

That will be quite difficult, since Cat5 has 8 conductors and coax has only two.
Why are you trying to do this anyway?What did a tornado sound like before freight trains were invented?

Actually impossivble I think Coax is one solid copper wire, while Cat5 is twisted pairs of very thin wire. I would have to go with Kuasi here and ask what your trying to do?

Yeah, I just figured it out on my own. I was handed this problem and knew it was a dead end. Just needed a second opinion.
