UTP and co-axial cable at two completely different type of cable with no similarity at all. Cat 5 UTP has eight wires, co-axe has two, a core and a shield.

It used to be that you could get NIC that could take both co-ax and UTP cable but they are no longer made as nobody uses co-ax in a network these days.
