Connect? Sure but you never told what the goal was.

I'll wait for more but I'd be guessing you want to supply the internet to other devices. Google this and it might help.

I need to have enternet connection for the Envoy so that I can see what each solar panel with microinverter is producing at anytime.

So you need a network.

You could get some switched hub to put the connection on and then put your laptop to the hub and use Virtual Router to set it all up. I don't offer any step by step but I think this will work fine if I had 2 ethernet cabes and a switched hub and Virtual Router to stand in for the usual router duties.

You're going to learn a little about networking but figure about 20 bucks to fix this up.

For some reason the virtual router will not start on my Windows 7 PC even I disabled the ipv6 minniport.

The owner had used some registry cleaners and had to reload the OS. It's a shame that happens.

All the info that is on internet is incomplete. I have tried a lot of them but will not start. A hub as far as I know will not connect to a AT&T air card because it is wireless.

Here it works.

But I have a standard OS install and no issues like you noted. It's very odd read you think it's the air card but I can only guess you are just beginning to learn networking. Give yourself time, get a few books and maybe take a class.

My bet is there is something non-standard going on with this PC.
