Need info from someone with an iPad2/3 3G and AppleTV
I'm trying to find a way to use an iPad and AppleTV to mirror the screen (for a demonstration that requires an internet connection) without access a dedicated wifi/internet connection.
If I bring a small wireless access point to connect the ATV and iPad to, and use a 3G/4G iPad, will the iPad still be able to mirror the screen through the AP while connecting to the internet via 3G? Or will it try to connect to the net through WiFi and never connect (since the AP isn't connected to the internet?)
Can the iPad enable tethering and allow the ATV to connect to it? If so, can the iPad airplay this way?
Or should I just simply consider picking up a MiFi and using a wifi only iPad?

Note that only the Verizon iPad has built-in "official" hotspot tethering right now.
