How to Convert Coax to Cat 5

by Bryan Roberts

Coaxial cable is used to transfer data from cable companies to coaxial ports in your home. The coaxial signal can be converted to a Category 5 cable signal for connection to modems and other networking equipment. In order to convert the signal, you need only the proper equipment.

Step 1

Connect one end of your CAT5 cable to the CAT5 (squarish) port on the converter.

Step 2

Connect the other end of the CAT5 cable to the CAT5 input port on your device.

Step 3

Connect the coaxial end of your converter to your coaxial device.

Turn your modem on. The modem will indicate that it is receiving a signal.
