Hello, and sorry you're having problems. Offhand, no Emerson TV's have wireless connect capabilities, file share, or Apple support in any sense. Emerson is an off-brand low cost TV that is not designed for this type of connectivity. Only upper brands such as Samsung or LG have this ability to connect to Apple devices. If you want to connect your Ipad wirelessly to the TV, you will need either an Apple TV streaming box connected to the TV via HDMI, or an Apple Airplay device. Your Ipad will then connect to the Airplay service, and the box will pick up that signal and transmit the signal to the TV.

The most basic device can be purchased at the link below for under $20, and will connect to the TV's HDMI port and then connect to your Wi Fi using it's built in antenna, then allow you to mirror content on your Ipad onto the TV:

Other than that, you are not going to find a TV with this feature built in without going to an upper end Samsung or LG TV. Emerson sets are simply not built with this in mind as they are an entry level lower grade TV. If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. You can follow up at any time if needed.
