    Is there a way that we can connect LAN cable to iPad?
    Is there a converter?

    The iPad can connect via WiFi or 3G only. If you only have a cable LAN then you need a wireless access point or router that you can plug that RJ-45 cable into - something like Apple's Airport Express.

    It's simply not possible to connect the iPad to the Internet via a wired connection.

    If I not wrong, there is a USB for iPad.
    Will it work if I use the LAN to USB converter - USB to iPad port


    Driver will have issue right?

    It will not work. Use either WIFI or 3G. No converters, no wired connections.

    I found myself in a hotel room with Ethernet only recently and Airport Express filled the gap quite nicely.

    I have since used a plug computer (DreamPlug) to extend this concept to gain access to 2 x Ethernet ports, an SD card slot, 2 x USB ports and an eSATA port.

    In other words, wireless is a gateway to additional physical IO for the iPad.
