If you restored your device, then you're on 6.1.3 assuming you used iTunes and did not use a custom IPSW. Jailbreak the device as is and see if the issue still exists

You don't install RedSn0w, it's a standalone executable application. You have to check your connection gateway then, because I'm downloading RedSn0w just fine using either of those links. Here's a link for jailbreaking using RedSn0w. Just change the IPSW that you're selecting to the iOS 4.2.1 IPSW for the 3G. Ignore the Booting Tethered portion at the bottom

Create a DFU IPSW to use with iTunes. Go to Extras > Even More > DFU IPSW, select the iOS 4.2.1 IPSW. RedSn0w will create a ENTER_DFU_iPhone2,1_4.2.1.xxxxxx.IPSW. Open up iTunes, shift+click Restore and point it to this new DFU IPSW. Let the restore process go through. At the end of it, you'll be in DFU mode. Once you're in DFU mode, follow the guide, except you ignore the parts where it says to put the device into DFU mode since you're already in DFU mode.

You select the iOS 4.2.1 IPSW for the 3G...........

You should still have access to your device regardless of whether you've activated or not. Otherwise, open up Assistive Touch in Settings.app > General > Accessibility > AssistiveTouch > On. Then use AssistiveTouch to turn your phone off while it's unplugged. While it's off and unplugged, hold the home button down and plug it in. Keep holding the home button until you see the Recovery Mode screen. Now go to iTunes, shift+click the Restore button, point it to the DFU IPSW that you created, let it DFU your device, then follow the instructions.

Ummm..... Obviously you kinda have to download it, hence the instructions in the guide if you've read it at any point where it asks for you to download the iOS IPSW of your device.
