    Can you get internet connectivity by ethernet or tethering?

    Stop!

    You will have a lot of difficulty without thethering. Please stand by.

    Attach your cell phone through your usb port to your computer, make sure the other end is plugged into your cell phone then turn on usb tethering on your phone and it should connect, the connection will show up as an ethernet connection.
