We need more details on the phrase "when I run antechamber the net charge was
-2 on the molecule". Exactly what commands did you run? How did you decide
that the antechamber thought the net charge was -2?

Note that antechamber defaults to a net charge of 0; you have to use the -nc
flag to request a non-zero charge.
