WiFi Hot Spot - Hook Up To The Internet

Jul 13, 2010

I apologize for asking what has probably been asked and answered several dozen times already. But, I'm a newbie and never owned an Apple product before until I received a new Ipad as a gift. It is not 3G so when not near a WiFi hot spot, I have no service. I called Apple and was advised that there's no way to upgrade my Ipad to a 3g model in order to have access to AT & T service. So, is there anything I can do to make my Ipad in order to hook into a cellular phone service broadband connection? I have a small USB device from Verizon for my PC that allows me to hook up to the internet where there's Verizon service. But, since the Ipad has no USB port, obviously I can't use it. Do I have any options. The MiFi device that Verizon sells appears to require a USB port which, once again, won't work. Do I have any options or am I forever tied to use my Ipad only when in range of a WiFi hot spot? Thanks for your patience in responding to this.

Use Internet With Free WiFi Hot Spot

Jun 1, 2010

I am fine at home. It asks for my password and i was fine. Till I went to the airport. Now I am trying to use the ipad on a free wifi hotspot. It connects, but won't do anything. I launched my mac to post this.Basically, I think the issue is the hotspot forcing you to enter things from the web page ie. flight number, name etc. I never get this option because safari won't connect. How do you get to wifi hot spots when this happens? Information : macbook aluminum, 2.4, 4 gig, 320, imac dual core, 1.8 Mac OS X (10.5.6) sony HDC-HC3, appleTV, ipods, hard drives, WDMP.

Soft Spot In Glass Is Cracking - Spot On The Screen Has A Bit Of Backlight Bleed

Mar 30, 2011

I got a new original iPad Thursday from my local Verizon store. I love it, but yesterday I was putting on a Yoobao slim case and noticed that if I press on the glass near the top right side, inside the black border, it flexes and squeaks. This spot on the screen has a bit of backlight bleed (not terrible, but still there) if that has anything to do with it.

The glass apparently touches the screen underneath as the "rainbow" type effect happens -the same effect seen when you touch an LCD. The pressure required to replicate this isn't extreme either, just a medium firm press. Should I be concerned? I'd hate for this to turn into an issue down the road.

Personal Hot Spot Doesn't Work With WiFi?

Mar 16, 2012

I read the manual last night and it states that the personal hot spot doesn't work with WiFi. Is this correct?

And before someone asks why I would want to do that. If I'm out of town and have to pay for my internet access I'd like to hook my laptop or iPhone up to the iPad hotspot.

Bring AirPort Express And Hook The Cable To Create A Wifi Network?

Jun 18, 2010

So now that I have an iPad (64/3G), and travel a lot... I have a question:

I want to go on the road armed only with said iPad sans macbook. If I'm at a hotel with only an ethernet cable, and don't want to use my 3G (as in international), can I just bring an AirPort Express and hook it to the cable to create a wifi network?

Never used the AirPort Express, so...

Wifi Indicator Blinks More Often And Showing That It Is Connecting To Internet But Unable To Use The Internet.

Aug 17, 2010

I have a wifi only version of the ipad and have been having very reliable wifi service ever since i got this second one (first one was returned). Only issue I have had is an occasional blinking wifi indicator that would blink off then back on every couple of minutes or so but then didnt last to long but now comes along this update which I do yesterday and today now the ipad says "connecting" but dont connect to the internet. The wifi icon is completly gone now and when I go to setting-network to look for my router-network its no where to be found actually it finds no networks in range in which it used to find a few from around my neighborhood. In the settings menu wifi is turned "on" and "ask to join networks" is also on. Now before you get discouraged about updating if u havent done so I was able to get my wifi back by pressing and holding the small power button on the side powering it off and then restarting it and bam there it was wifi icon at full bars again and getting 12.2 mbps down and 2.90 up! Point is I never had to do that before and just did that restart as I am typing this thread so I hope that I don't have to do this repeatedly. If anyone else has had this problem please let me know, I allways advocate doing any and all updates provided by a manufacture but the update is supposed to alleviate problems not create them.

Watch Your TV On Over Wifi Or Internet

Nov 24, 2010

If you have a supported Hauppauge TV card on your desktop you can watch your TV on the iPad and iPhone remotely with new WinTV 7 Extend software.


I just installed this new version and it works pretty well. It says it will work over the internet but so far I've only got it to work on my wifi.
