DIY Multi-Pin Audio Cables
Several devices require a multi-pin connector on an audio cable, including headphones, microphones, music equipment and home entertainment systems. If you need to change connectors on your current equipment or if the cables or connectors have become damaged, it often makes sense to wire a cable yourself rather than to buy a new one. You don't need to be a master electrician to wire your own audio cables. The right tools, some planning beforehand and a bit of practice with a soldering gun are usually all that's required.
How to Connect a Webcam to Wireless Ethernet
Using your webcams with services such as Google Talk, Skype, Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live Messenger works well when you're using the computer connected to the webcam, but other users on the network cannot utilize the camera in most cases. If you only have one webcam, and you have a Wi-Fi router with a USB port, you can connect the camera so that all users on the network can access and use it.
How to Splice Coaxial Cables
Coaxial cable is the round cable that runs from your cable box or DVR to the wall. It's used for cable TV, multimedia systems and high-speed Internet connections because the thick, plastic coating protects the audio-visual signal from being disrupted by other electronic noise. The most common reasons to splice coaxial cable are to shorten a cable that's too long or to extend a cable that's too short. In either case, cut and strip coaxial cable and splice it to another piece with a coaxial connector.
