   "the coax"?  _Which_ "the coax", from _where_?

 

   What, exactly, are you trying to do?  If you're asking whether a $5
thimble-sized gizmo can replace a cable-TV modem, then the answer is no.

 

   I can't (yet) see your (second) picture. In-line images must be
approved by a moderator before others can see them.  The time required
varies.  Attachments have no such limitation.  Of course, attachments
have their own one-per-message limitation.

Re: Coax adapter

The Coax cable coming into the house. What other coax would I be talking about? Oh yeah. The one coming out of my TV. I want to hook the TV to a router and send messages to Mars! I have family up there. I need to speak with! Puts adapter in box!

   How should I know?  With my weak psychic powers, I prefer to go by
the information which you provide, not by my guesses about invisible
stuff.

 

   My _guess_ was that you expected some $5 thimble-sized gizmo to
replace a cable-TV modem, which suggested that you might not be very
bright or well educated.  Your response to a simple question ("What,
exactly, are you trying to do?") did nothing to refute that speculation.

 

   But feel free to provide some useful information, if you can.

Re: Coax adapter

 I left two links there. One with a picture of the modem and one with a picture of an adapter. I mean come on? Why is that a hard question? The adapter says it converts RJ45 to RF.

Re: Coax adapter

How about this information. If you can't pull those two links. Look at the picture and answer a question. Then I'm pretty sure, I dont want you to answer a question anyway! I'm almost postive your not intellegent enough.

   I followed them.  I didn't learn what you're trying to do from either
of them.

   Because one of us seems to be unwilling/unable to answer a simple
question:

   Each is still a mystery.  If you're waiting for me to make any more
guesses, then you might have a long wait ahead of you.

   That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.  At least until you switch
from "smart" answers and insults to answers which convey some useful
information.

 

> [...] The adapter says it converts RJ45 to RF.

 

   No, it does _not_ say that.  "connectors" and "signals" are spelled
differently for a reason.  If you tie an electrical extension cord
to a garden hose, and then plug the extension-cord plug into an
electrical outlet, you do _not_ get water out of the hose.

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number
(look for "Model" on the product label), and look for Documentation.
Get the User Manual (at least).  Read.

 

   Do you have a modem of some kind?  Who/what is your ISP?

 

> [...] I'm almost postive your not intellegent enough.

 

   That's "you're".  And "intelligent".

Re: Coax adapter

Must be something wrong with this site because I copied and pasted a link to the!!!

NETGEAR WNDR3400-100NAS Dual Band Wireless and Ethernet Router.  Then I copied and pasted a link to the F Female to RJ45 Male Coaxial Coax Barrel Coupler Adapter RJ45 to RF adapter found on eday and various other places. I also posted pictures of both. No one can seem to answer this question? Pretty simple question. Can it be fitted to the end of the coax inside the house which is where routers plug in and plug directly into ethernet on the back of the router. Because all it has is a ethernet connection on the modem/router. So instead of have a modem and a router. Just the router. Ive been around electronics and just dont see what this adapter would be used for? Interested to find out. What plugs an electric signal into an optical reciever?

Re: Coax adapter

What is a LAN cable? LAN cables, more widely referred to as Ethernet cables, are comprised of copper wiring and come in a few different categories, the most common of which are Cat 5e and Cat 6. The cables terminate with an RJ45, or registered jack 45, plug.Apr 15, 2020

Re: Coax adapter

A registered jack (RJ) is a standardized physical network interface for connecting telecommunications or data equipment. The physical connectors that registered jacks use are mainly of the modular connector and 50-pin miniature ribbon connector types. The most common twisted-pair connector is an 8-position, 8-contact (8P8C) modular plug and jack commonly referred to as an RJ45 connector.      Radio frequency (RF) is the oscillation rate of an alternating electric current or voltage or of a magnetic, electric or electromagnetic field or mechanical system in the frequency range from around 20 kHz to around 300 GHz. This is roughly between the upper limit of audio frequencies and the lower limit of infrared frequencies;[1][2] these are the frequencies at which energy from an oscillating current can radiate off a conductor into space as radio waves. Different sources specify different upper and lower bounds for the frequency range.

   That would be a WNDR3400[v1].  It was not obvious to me whether you
had a WNDR3400[v1], a WNDR3400v2, or a WNDR3400v3.  Still isn't.

 

> [...] No one can seem to answer this question? [...]

 

   Perhaps that's because no one has figured out what you're trying to
do.

   My questions were pretty simple, too, but I'm still waiting for a
useful answer to any of them.  Look for "?".

   "it"?  Cables typically have two ends.  Where's the _other_ end of
your "the coax inside the house"?

 

> [...] Because all it has is a ethernet connection on the modem/router.
> [...]

 

   "modem/router"?  A WNDR3400[vX] is a router, not a "modem/router".

 


   Thanks for the lecture series, but you might waste less of everyone's
time if you simply answered the pending (simple) questions.


   I'm tired of trying to elicit basic information from you.  Either
provide some useful information, or wait for someone with stronger
psychic powers (or greater endurance) to put more effort into this mess.

Re: Coax adapter

Well like I said. Maybe there is something wrong with this site. Because I can undestand myself just fine. Looking at it from my side. I asked if Cable coax which sends a RF signal can be converted with the adapter to RJ45. Maybe you're not the one I need to answer any question about electronics that I have? Just maybe you should stop responding so someone can?  Stop attempting to make yourself look more intelligent. Because you just make yourself look like an unlikeable person. Which is my vibe already.
