    Post network questions

    Currently I have my computer and my wife's home office computer networked with a small ethernet hub using cat 5 cabling. I would like to be able to plug my in car pc up to the network. The garage is detached and is at the back of my property. There is an underground conduit which provides a phone connection to the garage and my dss signal into the house. I have an unused rg-6 cable and two unused cat-3??? cables. I would like to use an exsisting cable to connect to the network. I figured that I could probably use the coaxial cable if I could find the right kind of adapter. Isn't there a hub that uses rj-45's and bnc's at the same time. How bout some help. Jason

    Yeah sure they make ethernet hubs with coax on them. Have you ever heard of bnc? You need to get a hub with a bnc connector and then you need a bnc card in the car pc or you need another hub to hook the bnc to and use the other hub's rj45's to hook up the car. You will need 2 bnc t connectors, and 2 50 ohm bnc terminators to put on each end of the cable. Any questions email me.

    Or he can just hook up the the work PC directly if he has a straight RJ-45 cable. Thats how i link up to my box in the car with my laptop or when i take it into the house or work.
