    I am wondering on how I would connect a 10Base2 network to a 10BaseT network, what type of hardware would I need?

    Or by using a moular port on your router/switch to effectivly do the same thing.

    Upgrade?

    10base is quite old / slow. 100mbit kit isn't expensive - sometimes it's free!

    You do know that 10Base2 is coaxial, right? This is more than likely an exam question

    Yes - but then they should be asking about connecting 1000baseT over RJ45 to SX fibre via a GBIC or something, that's actually useful...

    That's old, These days it's all about xenpacks and 10G :woo:

    For the OP, if this is something you need to do at home/business then either upgrade to something that can handle 10BaseT or faster (You can probably find network cards for most systems on something like ebay). If that's not possible you should be able to find a cheap 2nd hand hub that has both types of connectors (and that's probably the only time I'll suggest a hub instead of a switch)

    That however isn't likely to be the correct answer if this is for an exam question.
