Complete noob to the MAC world so go easy on me guys. I've been searching for solutions to use a wired Ethernet connection to the Ipad 2. The apple store has no such accessory, but I do have a USB to Ethernet dongle. I've ordered the USB dongle for the iPad, so theoretically I should be able to use that to make an Ethernet connection. Reason I'm looking for this connection method, is that in some hotels I've been in recently, the only Internet connection is via wired Ethernet. So, has anyone tried this out yet, and if so, does it work much like a PC where you select DHCP and let the hotel's server do its things wrt IP address and DNS settings? At a more basic level, does the iPad even allow you to use its USB connection as a means to connect to the outside world as if it's a Wi-Fi connection? I have ordered the 3G model btw, so can go that route, but it's an expensive way to connect to the Web.
