You only need one, an AUI to BNC adapter converter.

PS: None of the listed choices would work except for maybe the bridge.

mikecr,
Actually an "AUI to BNC adapter converter" is called Tranceiver.
And you will also need the BNC T Connector (which supposed to be packed with a Tranceiver) to connect to the two ends of the coax cable.

If 10base2, that's ThinNet, right? You need a two-step solution. First, AUI to UTP:

Second, UTP to ThinNet

Haven't seen any single box solution for this conversion, probably not enough demand.

kschang,
I have seen and used AUI/BNC Tranciever. But I don't know any catalog number for them.

AUI/BNC transceivers do exist. They cost about £20 here in the UK if you shop around. I use a Lantronix LTX-2A on an old hub at home to link it directly to the 10base2 cabling.
