    No - I'm afraid not - 3G or WiFi only. But you can broadcast WiFi from a Windows PC or laptop that has WiFi (i.e make it into a WiFi hotspot) or purchase a WiFi dongle very cheaply.

    You should be picking up your WiFI from your wireless connection of your cable modem (if you have it setup for wireless).

    It depends on your application. You can set up a PC with wireless to act as a wireless hub, but if you have to buy a dongle, a wireless router may be the most practical option. You would then have a base station for all devices with wifi. It all depends on the application.

    Companies are moving away from physical connections. Even gaming systems are using wireless controllers. I, for one, think this is a smart move.

    Do an Ad-Hoc from your PC to Wi-Fi for iPad.
    Or buy an Apple Time Capsule.
