Hi
Ok please can someone tell me if it is possible to be connected to a LAN on ipad2 through wifi and still be connected to Internet via 3G.
My dad yesterday bought a HP wireless printer that works with AirPrint and as we discovered it is necessary to connect both iPad and printer through a router to be able to print. So he has his old router there (that isn't connected to a modem) and he can print now but as he only has Internet through his 3G on his iPad when he is on wifi to print his 3G no longer works. Is this normal? And if so is there a way to have both connected???
Thanks.

The iPad has only one active Internet connection and will prioritize wifi over 3G when the wifi signal is present.
