How to Connect an iPad to the Internet Through an Ethernet Port (Example)

Little by little, well-kept secrets have been revealed by one of the most important companies in the world, such as Apple. And perhaps this is so, because devices like iPads were created to be absolutely wireless. And in this sense we are going to show you what you should do so that you can connect an iPad to the internet through an Ethernet port.

For most of the connoisseurs of these types of devices, they will tell you that this procedure is impossible to do, since iPads do not have an Ethernet port. And this is true and therefore it cannot be directly connected to the network or even the Router. But this tutorial will show you that there is a way, not so simple but possible, to connect it.

Today there are many tricks that allow connections that previously seemed impossible to do or something crazy just by thinking about it. Our articles are aimed at showing you everything you need to learn more and solve problems including the reason why you cannot update your iPad.

How to connect an iPad to the Internet through an Ethernet port

To begin with, we are going to use the cable with which the device is charged or connected to the PC. This adapter is called the Camera Connection Kit by Apple, but is technically known as Lightning to USB 3 adapter.

Through this adapter other peripheral devices such as a mouse or keyboard can be wired. But other connections can be made with this type of adapter, as long as they are compatible with the iPad. And this same cable is the one that we are going to use to connect to an Ethernet port.

Before continuing it is important to make a clarification between the previous camera connection kit and the new and improved Lightning to USB 3 adapter. The latter allows data transfer to take place at high speeds. It also allows it to be plugged into the power outlet via the lightning port so the iPad can be charged while in use.

This type of cable is useful to be able to connect with an Ethernet cable, since these need electrical power to operate. Therefore it is advisable to use Apple’s USB Ethernet adapter, model MC704LL / A. Since other types of adapters, whether they are from another manufacturer or from older models, may not work correctly.

Once we have this type of connector in hand, the first step we are going to take is to connect the Lightning to USB 3 adapter to the iPad. Once this is done, we will go to the next step and this consists of connect the lightning outlet adapter to a wall outlet, this adapter is supplied from the iPad.

As we have already mentioned, it is important that a constant flow of electrical power is maintained, once this connection is made. We will go on to connect the USB 3 adapter of the iPad to the USB to Ethernet adapter and finally you must connect it by means of an Ethernet cable to the internet network and in this way it should work without any problem.
