For anyone following my saga, my husband got me back up and running tonight. He walked me through troubleshooting the rack. From there we did the servers and eventually reset the router and reconnected the house from that, bypassing the servers. I was told that I did a good job. Smartphones are amazing. We use gtalk. I took pictures through various steps and rearrangements allowing him to verify what he needed to.
Some of the goodies I am used to off of the home network are not available. I'll live and we'll work on it more this weekend when he gets some time off.
He is bringing me chocolate. Dark chocolate. Lots of it.
Back to business!
