    Default Broadband connection

    I am going overseas shortly and some of the hotels that I have booked at have "broadband internet", I'm not sure if that means wi-fi or not.
    If not is there a way to connect the ipad to a broadband plug in the wall as you would a laptop?
    Any suggestions would be welcome.

    Not at this time. Unfortunately you are limited to the wifi variety.

    As said above you cannot use a LAN cable.... I would recommend you take a small Wi-Fi router with you and make your own little hot spot. Just set everything to DHCP (automatic) and you should be ok.... just remember to password protect it

    The small, cheap wifi router is the way to go.
