    You have to connect your iPad to your computer before it will do anything, have you tried to connect it?

    That's your problem then, you need to find an Internet connection and download the latest version of iTunes onto your computer, then you can set up your iPad.

    You said it was a laptop, yes? If it has a wireless card, go find a local hotspot, like a McDonalds, buy a meal or drink to be polite, and use it to download iTunes. It's not a huge download. You'll need to activate your iPad with an internet connection too.

    Or, if you have an Apple Store nearby, they would probably be wiling to help you activate your iPad. Making an appointment would be a good idea.
