    If your DSL modem has a buldin wifi then is possible but if not you will need a router with wifi capabilities.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    You can only connect to a DSL modem using WiFi - cable connections, such as RJ-45 Ethernet, are not possible.

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    If your DSL modem is part of your ISP package, give them a call. They may be able to upgrade you to a Wi-Fi capable modem.
