I won a free 16GB non-3G iPad at work for doing good a job but I don't have wireless internet at home - just standard plug in lan cable with my laptop.
PROBLEM: I'd really like to start downloading apps so I can look at comic books, etc. on my brand new iPad. But I do not have a nearby wireless internet source, nor do I have bluetooth on my laptop.
QUESTION: Can I connect my iPad via USB cable to my laptop and use it as a modem for my iPad so I can access the app store, etc.?
(I tried googling my problem but kept on finding topics concerning the opposite challenge - tethering an iPad 3G to your laptop when your laptop has no available internet source. I have the opposite problem )
