There are a bunch of steps that need to be followed exactly if you want your connection to work properly. It might look intimidating but don't fret, it's really not that hard. All we ask is that you follow the instructions EXACTLY. Do not add or subtract steps. If you think you messed up some where, back off three or four steps and continue again.
