How to Wire a Mono Cable to a Stereo Jack
When you play an amplified musical instrument through a multiple speaker system, play back older monaural records or tape or listen to a monaural source such as a speech or dictation recording through a stereo system, you may need to feed a mono signal into a stereo jack. There are two simple ways of accomplishing this: rewiring the mono cable plug and purchasing an adapter. Either method provides equally balanced signal to the stereo output.
How to Replace a Headphone Plug
Modern stereo earbuds and headphones are small enough and light enough to wear everywhere. Their sound quality ranges from acceptable to exceptional, depending how much you're prepared to spend. Unfortunately, the lightweight wire used in most headphones isn't very sturdy, and over time it will wear out. Most headphones are inexpensive enough to be disposable when that happens, but it's not difficult to replace a plug if you want to keep your current set. The process varies, depending whether your headphones use a single shielded cable or a pair of wires side by side.
The Differences Between Ethernet, Token Ring, FIDDI & Wireless
According to the latest Census report, 70 percent of households in the United States have at least one computer connected to the Internet, used for communication, finding news and information and other tasks like online shopping. The networks connecting one computer to another have varied over the years. While Ethernet and wireless networks are the most common today, this wasn't always the case. At one time, Token Ring was the most common. Each networking technology has its own capabilities and limitations, including data speed and range, making it useful in some situations, but useless in others.
