but I want to give it to friend who does not have wireless capability
but had wired internet (LAN).

so i am thinking of purchasing HP LAN and USB Travel Hub Hub

so by using that will i be able to connect to internet... through LAN.

At this time there is no device to plug in to the HP TouchPad to provide them with a wired NIC. The best solution is to purchase a wireless router and convert his single LAN connection into a 4 LAN connection + wireless. Wireless routers can be picked up for super cheap.
