I have a windows desktop connected to a network. I'd like to share the network connection with my Ipad while it is connected via the USB cable to the desktop. Is this possible? How?





iPad 2, iOS 4.3.2, Desktop PC is utilizing Windows 7

    This is not possible.

    I use my iMac at my office every day to share the connection for my iPad. I've been doing it since the day I bought my iPad in October. I don't know anything about the Windows environment and OS but I would think it works on Windows as well.


    Do a Google search - something like "iPad sharing Internet connection with Windows PC"

    You share your connection via a USB cable? That seems to be what the OP is asking about.

    Well duh - no. I misread the question. I share the Internet connection from my iMac which is connected to the Internet via Ethernet cable to the modem.


    The iPad shares my iMac's Internet connection through internet sharing. The iPad is not connected to my Mac with the USB cable. Brain clot! But is it not possible to share the connection via Internet sharing in the Windows world?


    Sorry to the OP!
