Autocad and ArcGIS Online

I would like to create online maps for our offices and use the Sharepoint webpart to display them on our intranet.

  • I've used the ArcGIS for Autocad plugin to draw the plans on top of a basemap (to gain the coordinate system). 

  • Then I start a new map in ArcInfo and assign the same coordinate system, and import the Autocad File.

  • I create features from the Autocad polylines and polygons, add a few fields to the attribute table, and then create a shapefile from the features. So far so good.

  • Then I ZIP the shp, shx, dbf and prj files and upload them to My Content online.

Now the problem.  The ZIP files do not want to overlay on the basemap.  On top of that, I cannot zoom in close enough through ArcGIS online to make this useful. 
Attached is the zip file.

I've tried using KML/KMZ instead, but I'm running into the bug that others have mentioned.

Thanks for any help.
