This is a N connector for sure. I own thick Ethernet transceivers,
cables, terminators etc. with this connectors and I also use N
connectors for my WLAN antennas.

BTW: You can use N-to-BNC adapters and connect thick to thin Ethernet
this way. This is not covered by any Ethernet standard, but it works.
(At least for the short cables I used when I tried this.)

Yes, it may be a connector for RG58 style cable. But a terminator should
be easy to distinguish from a connector by looking at the backside.
