    Since you (apparently) have Internet at your house, you could get a wireless router. Some are very inexpensive. My wireless router cost $20.00 US. The only reason I have one is for my iPods and iPad.

    Sounds like you don't have Internet access at all to your house. If that is the case a router won't help you. Your choices are use your 3G if you have a 3G iPad, buy internet subscription, or if you have a cell phone that can do hotspot you can connect there.

    But he is obviously posting to the forum somehow from somewhere. So I guess we should ask, do you have an Internet connection at your home?

    Yes you could do it that way. So you're basically trying NOT to use 3G from home?

    Depending on your phone you could connect to iPad or to laptop then hotspot your laptop for the iPad.
