    Hi all. I have a iPad 2 3G. Can I somehow use it as a router at home to connect my laptop and desktop to?

    Hello Airdog - welcome to the forum! :)

    From you question, appears that you want to setup the iPad 2 via 3G as a Wi-Fi Hotspot to allow you other devices to connect - correct?

    Now, I do not have 3G on my iPad 2, so not an issue for me, but I would suggest checking with your cellular provider (and/or their respective website) to determine if this is a possibility (which if so will cost you extra) - good luck and let us know your results - may help others!

    And hopefully others in your situation have already addressed this issue and will respond - :thumbs:
