    An iOS device such as your iPad cannot connect to the Internet with a wired connection. There are only two ways for an iPad to connect to the Internet, WiFi or a cellular data connection. If you have no WiFi at home, you'll have to get a WiFi router if you want to connect your iPad to the Internet at home.

    It's also impossible to connect your iPad to the internet using Bluetooth and a PC. You'll need a Wi-Fi router.

    Interesting.

    The ones I looked at mentioned that the PC must have a wireless adapter or USB device installed. Makes sense because the PC must have ability to transmit data packets.

    I've never done it myself but we did help another member well over a year ago now to do this and he followed those instructions.

    Siri will work over WiFi or cellular internet connections. You can't use a cable to connect to the Internet with any iOS device. The cable is only for charging and syncing, backups and data transfers between your device and iTunes on your computer.
