    in windows you can set up an ad hoc connection so that you can connect one laptop to another and use the Internet connection of that laptop..

    Will I be able to connect my iPad to that laptop that has this ad hoc connection so that i can surf using the Internet of he laptop ?

    I know this may be dumb, but do you not have a wifi connection you can hook to? How is your laptop hooked to internet? If it is just a wired connection think about adding a wireless router and you can go the wifi route.

    If I am missing something please forgive and disregard this post.

    Have nice day,

    You may have to manually enable ICS (internet connection sharing) in Vista. You should be able to Google a tutorial.
