Why cant laptop connect to proxy?

You need to tell it, it is a proxy.

In internet explorer pick tools, internet options, then pick connections, then LAN settings. There you will find the setup to access the internet via a proxy.

Internet access

don't use IExplorer, use firefox or chrome. You do not need to know any proxy. Stay out of Lan settings. Make sure your ethernet cord is plugged in tight on both ends. That cord should show a green light when you look directly into the ethernet jack on your computer. You should be good to go then and connect to the internet.

If you do not know how to deselect some of the factory defaults before connecting it to the internet, you will be setting yourself up to get hijacked or worse. Have someone who knows a bit about PCs to help you.

Cannot communicate with DNS server

2 possible solutions to this.

1st, check if chrome is trying to access through a proxy server, Click on customise & control Google Chrome icon, click on settings. At bottom of page, click on "show advanced settings" scroll down to "network" & click on "change proxy settings" This will open internet properties on the connections tab; click on "lan settings" towards the bottom & make sure there are no boxes ticked, then click OK & OK again, then try refreshing the page; it should now appear.

2nd, make sure your firewall is not stopping chrome from accessing the web. As I don't know which security software you're using, can only suggest you go to the vendor support pages.

Cannot access website

Why can't I view some websites?
Applies to Windows 7
If you can access some websites but not all of them, here are some possible causes:
  • Your browser could be attempting to connect through a proxy server. If so, try connecting with the proxy server turned off.
  • Your browser connection settings could be incorrect. To change connection settings, follow these steps:
    1. Open Internet Options by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, and then clicking Internet Options.
    2. Click the Connections tab.

  • Your router could be attempting to proxy DNS requests and failing. Refer to the documentation that came with your router for instructions on disabling DNS proxying.
  • Parental Controls, Family Safety, or some other parental control software could be blocking access to certain websites.

My netbook could not connected to internet. Message display "Windows Could not automatically detect this network's proxy setting". For your info I am using HP netbook 100

To make sure your computer is trying to use the proper connection you need to go into Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections Tab > and select never dial a connection. That way windows will only try to access the internet via your wireless or cable LAN connection. Also you need to make sure that you are not set up to use a proxy. Go into LAN Settings on the Connections Tab and make sure its set up to automatically detect proxy settings. More than likely you are not on a proxy server. I hope this assist you. John

I just cant get on any page on the internet it just says server not found

There are many reasons for this. There may be parental controls active on the system, or your computer may be struggling to connect to the internet. Check your Internet Explorer settings. Click Tools on the right hand corner, select Internet Options, click on the Connections tab. At the bottom of the connections tab it should say LAN Settings. Select LAN Settings and there should be three boxes with a check option. The last one should say something along the lines of "use a proxy server". If it is checked, uncheck it. I experienced something similar to what you were experiencing. It turns out that a computer virus disguised as an Antivirus software called Antivir Pro Solutions or some variation of that, prevented my computer from accessing any websites, and eventually prevented me from opening programs. That particular virus was able to change the proxy server settings to its very own proxy server, and once I got rid of the virus using a program called Malwarebytes (awesome& very reliable program btw), the Internet Explorer settings remained on a proxy server. All I did was unchecked it and the internet returned. If you have a legitimate Antivirus software such as Mcafee or Norton by Symantec, I suggest you run a scan before anything. Some security features such as CA Security are good for somethings, but not for others. I had CA Security when I caught the virus. If you have CA, I suggest you download Malwarebytes as a secondary precaution. Anyways, I hope it's not a virus. Good Luck!

My p.c. keeps blocking my internet access by saying something about a Proxy. Even though it says my internet access is working.

You may have malware changing your settings. Open a browser window and look to the right side, click on the button marked "Tools", scroll down to "Internet Options" and click on that. When the window appears click on the "Connections" tab. Look to the bottom and click on the LAN Settings. Make sure that only the top box is checked and all others are UN-Checked. Click apply and ok. Now refresh the browser window and it should connect. I would suggest a malware scan quickly.

Hi there.
This is normally caused when Proxy Server setings have been changed or added. Start Internet Explorer
Click [Tools]
Select Internet Options

Click the [Connection] Tab
Highlight your ISP, for example "BTopenworld" connection and click [Settings]

Check that 'Use a proxy server...' and 'Use automatic configuration script' options do not have ticks next to them. (If they do, untick them).

Click [OK]

Close Internet Explorer, then restart it.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
