Hi Ashley,

Since the machine has no network connection, you have not been able to
do any updates?  If so, you might want to  focus on getting networking
up and running - then hopefully an updated version of Orca will work

It seems strange that both wireless and wired would not be working -
please give us some more details on what you've tried so far.  Do you
know what kind of wireless card you are using?  How is your network
set up  - modem, router, etc.?
