100Base T to Coax Adapters

I have to extend a network to a second building for Internet access. There is no way to snake Cat 5 wire between, and there are too many obstacles to wireless. However, there is a RG 58 cable run between the two.  I have had good experience in the past converting from 10BaseT to Coax.

I don't know if any of the hardware is still around. What is currently the best way to use existing Coax? Are there dedicated adapters.

Thanks.

How far is this RG-58 cable?

You can try one of these.

The device is quite interesting. It just takes 1 pair and transmits the signal over the Coax. I haven't looked at the specs for twisted pair in a long time, but that means that 1 pair is signal, and the other pair must be a Kirchoff's law thing (i.e. prevent interference)  Last time around I had to get hubs with 10BaseT and the original Ethernet connectors, and couple them with BNC to E-Net adapters.
