    Happy New Year to Everybody.

    I was lucky to be given by my lovely Wife a ipad for Xmas.

    Does my ipad connect to the internet through the AirPort Wireless Communication on my iMac or do I need a wireless capable router so the ipad connects through the router.
    I get the message "Safari cannot open the page because it is not connected to the internet" even if my ipad shows the wifi is connected.

    Hi Andy

    As far as I know, only through a wi-fi router. Looks like you have to setup your own wi-fi capable router or park by a open wi-fi hot-spot.

    Bests of luck

    Hi Bruce.
    Thanks for the help. I took my ipad down to the local Library with a free wi-fi hot spot and ipad connected quickly to the network so I could do the internet thing.
    Next I will sort the wi-fi router.
    Cheers
