How to run Cable & Internet from my house to detached garage about 40 ft from house

Cable and internet are run to my house, the underground cable to house is connected outside with a connector and ground wire.  I want to run cable and internet to my detached metal building garage, so I need to install a splitter at the connector.  what kind of (outdoor) splitter do I need and what kind of cable do I run to the detached garage?

 

Also, what do I need to get good wifi signal in my detached metal building garage.

RG6 cable
Research Wi-Fi extenders but 40 ft is going to be tough for Wi-Fi

I suspect we will have to put another router out in the bldg, the metal building causes interference.  We get wifi on the outside but as soon as we enter the bldg we loose signal.
