The USB-C port on the 2018 iPad Pro is your portal to a world of connectivity. Whether at home or on the road, if you want to use wired internet, it's super simple to hook up to your iPad Pro.

As far as setup goes that's all you need to do. Your iPad Pro should now be seeing a connection over Ethernet you can use instead of Wi-Fi or cellular. You can also turn off the Wi-Fi on your iPad Pro just to make sure it's no longer connecting wirelessly to your network.
