Most people don't need a proxy server unless it's in a corporate environment.
On your laptop, try going into your control panel -> Internet options -> Connections tab -> LAN Settings button and uncheck all of the boxes. Hit OK until you get back to the control panel. Try your internet and see if it works.
A Proxy server holds web pages that you use often. It sits between you and the Internet. For proxy server settings have a look at Internet Explorer options, under connections. If you have no proxy server, then you can switch it off by unticking the "use proxy server" from there.
Why do you need proxy settings? You only need proxy settings if you are using your Laptop at work or at Uni where there is a proxy server installed. Its normally in Internet explorer, Tools, Internet options and connection...
check your proxies first.
Go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings.
You most likely are not using a proxy server. Ensure your settings mirror the above, especially the "Use a proxy server..." setting.
To check your webcam, open messenger on the toolbar at the top >
messenger > my webcam > this should open a warning panel - read
and click 'ok'.this will launch your webcam and show you as other
people will view you. You can also use the webcam icon as a shortcut
If all is ok, when your contact is on line and you want them to see
your webcam go to toolbar > actions > invite to view my webcam.
if your contact wants you to view them they will send you an invite
click on the blue "accept"
also check your connection
>messenger>preference>connection> select no proxies - check
internet connection and country are correct >apply > ok ..
Let me explain you about the Proxy servers.
In Computer Networks, a Proxy Server is a Server (a Computer system or an application program) that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource, available from a different server. The proxy server evaluates the request according to its filtering rules. For example, it may filter traffic by IP address or protocol. If the request is validated by the filter, the proxy provides the resource by connecting to the relevant server and requesting the service on behalf of the client. A proxy server may optionally alter the client's request or the server's response, and sometimes it may serve the request without contacting the specified server. In this case, it 'caches' responses from the remote server, and returns subsequent requests for the same content directly. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further information about the Proxy servers. I'll be glad to assist you.
Make sure you have Wireless network adapter driver installed.
Manually assigned IP address and DNS address as earlier (if your IP setting is not automatically assigned by DHCP server).
If you are using router set your Router IP address as your Default Gateway Address.
If you are using Internet through a Proxy Server then Open "Internet Explorer ", Click "Tools", Click "Internet options", click on tab called "Connection", Click "Lan settings" Button. Remove "Automatically detect settings". Tick "use a proxy server for your LAN....." Type the IP address of your Proxy Server and the port no.

This is because your internet network connection is not that strong, so i'll advice that you get your computer to a stronger internet server. Once this is done you can connect to webcam. I bet you this is just a connection speed problem. Please upgrade your internet speed and your cam would be able to connect faster to the server.
