    Hi guys.
    Sorry for my ignorance...:(

    Iv just ordered an ipad 2 with wifi.
    Can i not just connect a 3g dongle for internet instead of getting the ipad 3g? :confused:

    Thanks.

    No - that is not possible. The USB port on the iPad does not supply sufficient current to power a WiFi dongle - unless it's self powered - i.e. a 'MiFi'.

    A MiFi self-powered WiFi dongle will work just fine, though.


    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


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