Unfortunately with no Internet at the time corresponding vi email with you all was a difficult task in and of itself. I checked the light to make sure the port was working correctly and then I ran ifconfig and wasn't getting an ip address. Had I had Internet I would have hit you up on Skype for help, then again had it worked I wouldn't have needed to hit you up on Skype for help.
