    So here is the deal, I really want to use my iPad as a second monitor for my PC. I know there are plenty of apps that allow this and they probably work so long as you use the same WiFi. My problem is that the network at my school where I have WiFi has a VERY strict policy that does not allow any outside users or information sharing. So I can't even use my iTunes home sharing in my dorm room. So I was wondering if it is possible to tether my iPad to my PC to use remote control apps like iTunes remote and/or as a second monitor instead of having to to be connected to the same WiFi and disabling all of my firewalls and everything else.
    *I would prefer it if I didn't have to jailbreak it either.

    Thanks,
    Jesse.irvin

    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!!

    I saw your question too - thanks for contacting us - I'll get back to you soon about this..

    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.
