    Can I convert a 10-baseT BNC style network connector to cat5 using one of those simple adapters they use in video installations?

    Like this?

    Thanks for any help. I have a VERY old computer that has the old BNC type connector and would like to "play" with connecting it to my modern router.

    It's an Amiga computer. RJ-45 cards are way pricey for this niche system.
