Can you hookup coax cable to cat 5e cable for tv hookup?

No, the two types of cable are not compatible. Coax cable is a shielded cable with special end connectors and a single internal conductor, where as Cat 5 is multi conductor 4 pair cable.

CAT-5E, also known as CAT-5 Enhanced, is a type of ethernet network cable which was manufactured under the standards of EIA/TIA. The maximum speed of a CAT-5E is about 0.64c.

Cat 5, Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat7

Ethernet cable of cat 5e or cat 6 connected to modem or router

There are 8 wires in cat 5-e cable.

Yes, CAT 5E is well-suited for gigabit ethernet. CAT 6 will also work just fine.

A regular Cat 5e or Cat 6 RJ-45 straight-through Ethernet network cable.

Typically you would use a CAT-5e or CAT-6 UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) network cable.

The bit rate of any network cable depends on the hardware attached to it. Cat-5e cable on 100bT hardware has a bit rate of 100 megabits per second. Gigabit ethernet equipment will generally only try to send 300 megabits/second through Cat5e cable.

The term cat 5e cable is short for category 5 network cabling, consisting of four twisted pairs of copper wire. It supports frequencies of 100 megahertz and speeds up to 1000 megabytes per second.

Most common at the moment is CAT 5e However others exist,

If you can use fiber optics. If not try to use CAT-5e at least, CAT-6 is recommended.

CAT-6 uses different wiring diagram, also higher transmission rates are native for CAT-6 when for CAT-5E it's an extension (it uses all 4 pairs).

For a straight-through cable connection, I use diagrams such as:

Cat 5E UTP (or better) or Fiber Optic cable would be necessary for gigabit network connections.

The bulk cat 5e is a long line of professional cable used to wire a home or office space. They also come in a variety of types from solid or stranded to plenum, each of which depends on the condition in which the cable will be used whether it be immobile, constantly moving or flame resistant.

You have to use a cat 5e cable for that, including all connecting devices that are capable of running at Gbps speed.

Four pairs. Only one pair required for normal LAN operation though.

There is a LAN port in modem, use a LAN cable (CAT-5/5e, CAT-6) and connect to the router in the port which signed as "internet".

There are 4 twisted pairs of cables for a total of 8 indivudal cables.

That depends on what you will be using the cable for. In general, the higher the frequency of the signal being sent down the cable, the shorter the cable has to be. The environment of the cable is also important. If the cable is in an electrically noisy environment, it needs to be shorter. There are various standards that specify the maximum length of a cable. Sometimes it will work (some of the time) if you use a longer piece of cable, but following the standard is much more likely to work correctly all the time. Some examples from computer networking standars: For 10BASE-T Ethernet, the maximum length of a cable is 100 meters. Note that this standard was defined for Cat 3 cable, so you'll probably be able to use Cat 5e cable to send the signal further. However, there's no standard specifying how much further - you'll probably have to test it yourself. For 100BASE-T Ethernet, the maximum length is also 100 meters, but the cable grade is specified as Cat 5 (not Cat 5e). So you might be able to make a longer run work with Cat 5e. For 1000BASE-T Ethernet, again the maximum length is 100 meters, but now the cable must be Cat 5e. Also, all four pairs of the cable are used, whereas in the other two standards only two pairs are used. HTH, Gdunge

It should be at least UTP CAT-5, if your equipment supports gigabit connection use CAT-5e.
