    I am a teacher and am considering purchasing an ipad. I would like to be able to project what I am doing on the ipad onto the screen at the front of the room, however, the projector doesn't have wireless capabilities. I can connect my pc at the front of the room to the projector, and was wondering if there was any way in which I could use that as a type of relay, so that my pc pick up the signal from the ipad and send it directly to the projector through the wired connection. Thanks.

    If the room has a face plate, where you would normally plug in a vga cable, say for a laptop then you just need to purchase this:

    http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC552ZM/B/apple-vga-adapter

    And provided you have the newest ios, and ipad 2 or newer you can mirror your display to a projector.

    Good luck
