How would one hook up an Ipad to the ethernet connection?

    How is this done? Are there special cords necessary?

    get rid of it. That is the wise move.

    It's not mine ;)

    It's being used as an alternative to a full laptop... if I can get it etherneted. I see pros and cons for both when contrasting iPad to full laptop (ethernet connection for both).

    personally I think a laptop is better.(you can chose among 1000 of models the least worst and customise individual parts)
    if ipad doesn't have an ethernet port then use an usb/ethernet converter.

    It seems that most of the usb-ethernet converters available on Amazon states that your device has to support Ethernet, otherwise the converters won't work. I followed the instructions on one of them to check out if I can use it for my Android tablet. Unfortunately, I do not have the 'Ethernet' option in the settings under "Wireless and Networks". :(

    If your device supports Ethernet, then it would be listed there, but the option would be 'grayed out'.
