Solved: BNC to RJ45 Converter

Q: Solved: BNC to RJ45 Converter

Hey everyone!

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I feel like it relates to networking.

I work at a chemical company and we have a peace of lab equipment; a Varian CP-3800 GC - it is a Gas Chromatograph that connects to an old computer we have sitting running Windows XP SP3 and has a NIC card in it with a BNC connector. This peace of lab equipment runs over this BNC connection.

So what I am trying to do is to migrate to a new computer; put the NIC card in the new computer running Windows 7 x64. Here are my problems though.
The BNC card manufacture, Realtek has not made drivers for Windows 7. Model of the NIC is RTL8029AS
I tried a BNC to RJ45 converter, but it seems like either the GC does not see the connection or the converter is bad, but the RJ45 lights blink but the BNC lights show no activity.

Has anyone delt with something like this before? Any ideas?

Hi.. I am trying to connect my new router which has an RJ45 connection, to Cablevisions coaxial which is connected to my old Netgear router.
I would like to know which is the best route to take in terms of connecting the new router. Do I have to contact the service provider or is there something I can use like an adapter?. Can anyone help in how to go about this?. Thanks.

A:Solved: RJ45 to Coax connection assistence

The coaxial cable is plugged into a modem. That is then plugged into a router.
Like this: http://www.home-network-help.com/images/home-network.jpg
It sounds like in your case the router and modem are a single unit. You may want to connect the the new router to the old router.

When wiring up modular ethernet jacks for a CAT-5 or CAT-6 cable, should all 8 wires be exactly the same length? If they aren't, will it affect timing and performance?

I've always cut each pair to the exact length it needs to be to reach the press-in slots, so they end up being 4 different lengths.

Also, why are CAT-5 and CAT-6 cables wired differently as far as the color order goes? Is it just so you can tell them apart? Sure makes things confusing.

Hey Guys,

I need to get a crimp tool to make a few ethernet wires. I have been looking at the prices on those things and they are extremely high (upwards of $50!).

I just need something to get the job done and that will work fine? Do you have to go with an expensive crimp tool to get good results, or can you go with a generic brand?

I want to renew about 15 Connectors in our Firm's network. We have old unshielded Cat5 cables going through the building. Can I buy these connectors, although they're shielded?


Or do I have to buy the more expensive unshielded model:


This'd be the crimping tool:


I'm a beginner in connecting RJ45 Connectors. This is why I ask in order to be on the safe side.

Thank you very much for advise.


A:Solved: Connecting an unshielded Cat5-cable with to shielded RJ45 Cat5e-connector

The data connections are the same on both.
The CAT 6 you want to buy has better conductors anyway,
as it is designed for higher frequencies.
You just don't have the outer shield web in the cable for it to clamp to.
Won't hurt anything.

I've searced everywhere that I can find to locate a URL to a "current (2009) Comparison Review" of DTV Converter boxes.

I have only (4) days left to purchase 2 of them with the coupons I have. An online purchase may not be feasible due to shipping time. But, the government listed many local stores in my zipcode (94606) and/or (94501) that carry "coupon-eligible converter boxes."

Every review that I found was dated 2007 or 2008. My hope is that by now (2009), hardware technology and software on these units will have improved. Of course, I prefer to buy latest technology rather than 1 or 2 year old technology for the same expenditure.

I'm trying to find a side-by-side comparision with recommendations for the best ones. Of course, I'm hoping for an unbiased review! That's difficult on the www!

I've been to Tom's Hardware Guide, Cnet (which was no help at all) and many other links! Cnet listed only 2 in their review, and their review was way out of date). I've visited at least 15 or 20 other URL's, but none gave me what I want. None were current nor definitive.

Can anybody here advise me on what to avoid and/or which Brand/Model delivers best performance, both "on-screen" software, and superior technological design?

I think one of the following had a A+ rating. But, I'm not sure at the moment. I didn't save the URL:

After tackling this for a good 6 hours, Im ready to ask for some help.

I play MOV files with Quick Alternative, and they play flawlessly. However, I have learned that putting the movies on DVD is not so effortless.

Try as I might with various freeware tools, I cannot for the LIFE of me, EXTRACT THE AUDIO! Not even WinAVIVideo will convert the files audio every single tool Ive used will only give me the video result. When previewing my project in Nero, it only plays the video portion of the MOV files as well!

Do you experts know of a freeware tool that will either:

1. Convert MOV files (their audio and video!) to something I can burn to DVD with Nero (convert it to WMV, DivX, I dont care!)


2. A program that will extract the audio into a wave/mp3 file for me to join with TMPG.

I'm looking for an image format converter, but before you point to the standard converters, like .png to .jpg or .gif to .ico, let me point out that the format I want to convert from is machine language.
I have an old email archived, and it has an image shown in the form "iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAZQAAAEqCAIAAAC9ZzHyAAAACXBIWXMAAA7EAAAOxAGVKw4bAAAA . . ." (that's what I'm calling "machine language", though that may not be correct . . . but you get the point).
I know that particular image is a color photo. What I would like to do is take that "code" and convert it back to an image format, like .jpg or .png, so that I can view it.
I have a vague memory that I ran across something like that one time, but if I do a Google search on "image converter" all I get is the standard stuff that converts those .jpg to .png and .gif to .ico and such. That's not what I'm looking for.
And if I do a Google search on "binary images" all I get is stuff about black and white and pixels for two colors and such. So that's not it either.
Does the animal I'm looking for exist?
(BTW, my OS is Ubuntu . . . which is why I'm asking this question in this forum . . . so Windows graphics editors are out. Well . . . I guess I can somehow manipulate it over to my Windows VM if I have to, but I'd prefer something in Ubuntu.)

Hello, just today I discovered a new format that might come in handy if it comes to compressing music files - the M4A (MPEG-4 Audio). The question is: is there a free converter for changing MP3 INTO M4A? I didn't find any answers to this on the forum boards, so that's why I'm writing. Still, I know that there are loads of M4A ----> MP3/WMA converters, but I don't need any of them.
Why do I need it? Let me put it this way: some Sony Ericsson phones CAN play those files and M4A means about 4 times more songs than MP3 with the same/better quality. Sounds tempting, doesn't it? :>

I have one of those neat little Flip Video recorders made by Pure Digital and love it ..... except for the fact that it records in avi format. Some players will play the files while others won't ...... Windows Media Player on one computer plays them without a problem while on other computers I get sound but no video. I would like to convert the avi files into wmv or mpeg. I've downloaded and tried 3 different software products that are freeware, but none seem to work - they convert the files, but then won't play.

Anyone know of software that will convert avi to wmv or mpeg which will then work with any player? I'd like freeware, but don't mind paying for something that has a trail period and isn't overly expensive.

I posted before and got no help. I have an older archos recorder 20 gb that I downloaded rockbox to. I joined the forum, and got lots of help. Here is what I found out. Rockbox will only accept MP3 files. I use wmp 11 and they are NOT mp3, they are wma. I was told to get a transcoder and one was recommended. I couldn't get that to download. I did find one that was "sort of" easy, it was easy cd-da extractor. I'm not entirely sure if I used it right, but mananged to finally get songs on my mp3 player. What I did was drag a few files at a time. (each folder was a differnt artist). Then I put in playback as mp3. When I finished, I went to my computer and sent to e drive, in which my player was set up. Now hen I look at the songs on my player, they are duplicate. One was wma after the song, the other says mp3. Obvoiusly the wma is junk, so I deleted them. I have over 100 cd's in there. Is there a faster or easier converter or whatever I need? I also, is there a way to only put on the mp3 songs on the recorder? One other thing, is there a way to put a huge file like the library itself rather than go one by one with the artist? I have been working with "a", then transferring it over to make sure it works. It will work the other way, it's just very, very time consuming.

Forum rules - Circumventing Copy Protection / Copyright Infringement - While we believe it's reasonable to make backup copies of CDs and DVDs that you own, a lot of people break copy protection for the wrong reasons. The law is still vague as to whether or not it's legal to break copy protection in order to make such a backup, even for personal use. (The DMCA, for example, seems to make it illegal). If we can find a nice way to draw the line, we may reconsider this in the future as laws get sorted out. As a result, we do not allow discussion on how to break copy protection or use emulation software at this time.

Hello again,

I am looking for a program that will convert AVI video to WMV video. I want the program to be able to convert a video to a video that is 1024 X 768 or lower if possible. I have tried using Windows Movie Maker, but it seems like it makes the video files bigger than they need to be when it converts them. I know the files will be large with a 1024 X 768 resolution. I am willing to see if 800 X 600 is better.

The reason I need the videos so big, is the company I am working for does training videos online, where they are showing clients how to click around a website and such. I have found Camstudio to be a good, free, screen recorder. The only problem, is it saves the files as AVI, which are extremely large.
