    Wild Manne,
    I do not know why or how it worked but i turned off my computer turned on the wifi switch and prayed as it booted up and it worked. i cant explain this but im starting to believe that it was the praying that helped as i had tried this before and it didnt work. Issue solved then?

    Hi, I am still looking because the problem may come back and some of the information is not correct because of typo's and I do not want the issue to pop back up because I did not follow through, but if you are happy then so am I.
    Enjoy
