    The server version of Ubuntu doesn't have a GUI. I didn't realize this when i downloaded it. I figured since i wanted to set up a server and Ubuntu was a noob friendly version of Linux that it was a good idea. I guess it wasn't such a good idea since i'm stuck with a command line and i don't know any commands (aside from 'cd','mkdir' and other very basic commands).
    EDIT
    I tried to install the GUI ('sudo apt-get install Ubuntu-desktop') and it gave me an error saying "couldn't find package" so i'm going to take that as a no

    Its good to get the complete desktop edition instead of installing ubuntu-desktop.
    because ubuntu server edition is optimized for server.

    I agree. If you're needing a specific server app, you could just install it onto the standard desktop edition.

    So the consensus is for me to scrap the server version and download the regular version of Ubuntu?
    Which is probably what I should have done in the first place

    Does the fact that it didn't work to install the desktop mean that I still have no connectivity?

    Connectivity is like less issue in ubuntu desktop, because your connection is handled by network manager.
