    Coaxial cable has an outer braided cylinder around a wire core.  Ethernet cable is wired appropriately to connect to what's popularly known as an RJ45 connected.  Coaxial can be used for many different purposes, e.g. UHF TV aerial connections.

    Ethernet has EIGHT conductors.  Coaxial has ONE center conductor with a Shield.

    Coaxial is basically a 2-conductor cable; an inner wire is surrounded by an outer sheath, which may in itself also be shielded. It typically carries video information.  Ethernet is typically a braided 8-wire cable, and carries high-speed communications.

    Are you sure this should be in Astronomy and Space

    A coaxial cable connects from your Television Receptor to send a  signal to your TV

    An Ethernet Cable (Yellow) connects internet to your computer, if you do not have Wi Fi

    Or until you get it

    Coaxial cable’s end is circular with a thin metal in the middle. 

    Ethernet cable looks like a lan phone cord but the cord is thicker and the end is wider.

    1) This is not an astronomy & Space question.

    2) it is INCREDIBLY simple to look these up for yourself:
