    Sadly, I'm about to get on a plane and it's a 3 hour drive from here. You may need to seek some local computer networking help. I don't know why the android gets an error page, and the computer does not.

      I hope you're not getting on a plane and coming to Michigan just for me, but if you are... I've got some tech support cash for you LOL

        You have ruined several inches of wire and the connectors. Plumbers flux is ACID core and will eat through stranded wire in several months/years.
        You have to cut the wire back several inches - past where the flux wicked along the strands. use a proper crimp tool and crimp the MC connectors on the wires.

        As to the box, I have used a 6 position combiner box and mixed DC functions in it. GardenSolarCombiner.jpg

          They are the proper size for the panels & wires.
          I believe the 3 solar PV breakers are 12A, the CC-PV was 40A, and the CC-Battery was 40A
          Your breakers will be different, according to the stickers on the panels for Series Fuse, and the size of breaker to protect the wire you use
