Aside from syncing content to and from an iPad and charging it, the device itself has absolutely no wired capabilities - it's a wholly wireless device (indeed, this is the purpose of tablets). Thus, you can't connect to a wired network unless a wireless signal from it is being broadcast.

If you can't use AirPlay, there are a variety of solutions here. As noted though, you'll need a wireless network.
