    Hi, all!

    I am just getting started with my iPad, having switched from primarily Windows user for many years but finally giving a Mac PowerBook Pro a serious try. That worked out well so on to the iPad. Purchased primarily for use instead of a laptop on a visit to Berlin, Germany there was no point in getting the 4G equipped one as my AT&T account would not work in Europe, so I got the latest version device with the maximum memory, the 64 bit one. WiFi serves me well for FaceTime and Skype both audio and video. I would, however like to connect the iPad through Ethernet and would appreciate being told how o do that and take advantage of the more rapid data transfer of that protocol

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forums Bill. Unfortunately, no way to connect an iPad to your local ethernet via wire or cable. Its wireless (wifi) or nothing, I'm afraid :(
