Update: When I put the USB back in the laptop it said it was out of date again. Of course since it can't get to the Web it just assumes it's out of date. I cabled it up and it was off and running doing the update, or at least appearing to, and coming back with today's dates on the Home screen.
Good points. And yes, if WDO does not detect an Internet Connection, it will tell you that it is out of date.
