Coaxial Cables Just as with Rj45 connections, coaxial connections are used with specific types of network, 10-base 5 and 10-base 2 and thin net networks. What does that all mean. 10 means 10mbps bandwidth, it uses baseband transmission, the 5 means it has a maximum "segment" length of 500 meters, 2 is 185meters, it's also referred to as thin net because it uses a thinner cabling structure. You'll also learn about the different types of connectors, we'll show you how to use the "T" connector and how it works, we'll diagram and explain the connection relationships, you'll learn what happens with one NIC goes bad on the connection route, and how that impacts connectivity the entire connection. Coaxial has two cable types, RG59 and RG6 and their differences are distinct, you'll learn why. HOMEWORK – Google the 5-4-3 Rule, pay close attention to that one, you might just need it!
