There's nothing that you can do unless you change to a supported server.

How do I fix internet proxy settings

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.

What ia a proxy server

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.

Cannot internet to work

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.

Cannot connect to webcam

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 ..

What is proxy

Hi liverpool97.
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.

I formatted my system and reinstalled Win XP on it, but now I could not use wireless to connect with internet

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.

It will work.

I have an hp pavilion dv6000 and i caint seem to get my webcam to work it keeps telling me a network has occured while connecting to the server please can someone help me(its built in my laptop)just to let...


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.

Hope this helped.
