    No, sorry. You can't connect to the outside world like that. You will need to have a wifi hotspot to connect to.

    You were given a link in your other post from Gabriel that showed how you could turn your laptop into a wifi hotspot, did you follow the link and try the information there? If that's not possible for some reason, the only other way for you is to buy a portable wifi/modem which will allow you to connect multiple devices. This way your laptop and iPad could share this wifi connection. Hope this helps you.

    Please do not start another thread on this issue!

    The link you were given was the steps to take to turn your laptop into a wifi hotspot. Have another look at this.
    I believe you need at least iPhone 3GS to enable a hotspot for your iPad. A mobile Router/Modem is a device which will enable several devices to connect to it for Internet coverage. Your laptop would also be able to connect.
    This is the link that Gabriel gave you, please try these steps

    Let us know how you go.

    So glad it worked on your friends laptop. I don't know why it didn't work on yours though, did you have your wifi dongle in at the time, as the iPad would essentially be sharing this Internet connection. Good luck!
