I bet you do not need or want any proxy server.
I bet you question really is how to get internet connected, right?
first off what OS is this, XP> we can not see you, your PC nor your OS. (whats connected to PC, nor if it has wifi options)
is this IE11 your browsers , cant guess that either,?

why not use an Ethernet, Lan cable CAT5/6 and plug in the PC to the router and it all works like magic,
that be first.
if the PCs lan jack (ethernet ) is dead. (and other PCs work on your router) do they./
then we go to device manager and look
see that? then see if the lan chip has driver.
network marked, red/yellow or unknown is bad.
if missing the get it from HP.

HP has zero support on old PCs, it's too old, its in fact 16 years old. support ended . 2007 (17-10 = x)
came with 10/100 Ethernet, new (spec sheet says)
slow. that is.
but what chip that is , is very hard to find out this old
why waste time and money on PC worth $5 used.?
it came with windows 2000 or XP new. which is it?
if the driver is good, or the unknown chip there, ethernet
the when you connect to the router the connection made automatically
then running relic old IE 6? you see proxy question
tell it no, and that sets automatic , gate way ip address to your router. and just works out of the gate.

install firefox v56 and its more easy.
to run and not get bogged down in proxy settings.
avoid IE versions below 11, as all OLD IE's, are virus magnets and zero support, use Firefox, on all old PCs, not updated to W7 !!!
IE = internet exploder browsers)

show just getting a connection, only. browsing is a whole other matter, and 20 browsers free are common.

    btw op
    you failed to say who your ISP is? comcast?
    6 ways are....
    dial up
    tv modem internet.
    DSL
    SAT
    FIOS
    3g/4g
    what?
    nor if you have a router , brand and model number.

    asking how to connect lacking that, is very hard.

    answer 2, if a proxy is what you need, why?
    then you must be connected first.
    are you, do you have internet working to your ISP. if no , then forget proxy.
    tell it NO proxy.
    if you pay for no proxy services, then Id bet you have no need for one,
    One usage legit is say in USA what to pretend you are in EU, and then see things sold there only say in Ebay, not for bad reasons.
    only to see what folks there see..
    In EU the do this to watch netflix. fooling netflix thinks they are in USA

SOURCE: Connecting wireless

I've had a plethora of problems with my armada 1750 (I know this is not the same model, but it's close) one of which was getting it connected to my wireless network. 
The primary problem I was having was the fact that it has a 4 gig HD, so I wanted to put the smallest windows OS possible while still being able to effectively use the internet (this was a nice idea in theory, but became my problem). 
The card I'm using is a linksys WPC55AG:  http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US/Layout&cid=1115416827328&pagename=Linksys/Common/VisitorWrapper

I'm going to wager that this will work for you as well.  The problem however, is that I could not for the life of me get the software it comes with to detect wireless networks, to connect to my network *while using windows 98*.  
I'm not sure of the hard drive space you have, but the solution for me was to install windowsXP with service pack 2, which has greater capabilities in detecting wireless networks.  Now, with XP+SP2 installed, I'm just under 2 gig (1.8 or so).  
I only use this to browse the web, so it suits my purposes just fine, I hope this helps you!

I can't get my LAN settings to automatically detect settings, box will not check.


Reset your proxy settings
Proxy servers, or proxies, act as intermediary servers between a Web browser and the Internet. According to Microsoft's website, proxies are mainly used by networks in companies to enhance the security and speed of their network connection.
Proxy servers can also be used to log Internet usage, mask the network address of a server or to apply global restrictions to a network.
Internet Explorer is set to automatically detect proxy servers by default.
You can reset the Internet Explorer proxy settings to their default settings from the "Internet Options" configuration.

I have found the easiest way to do this is to add the menu to the top of a webpage.
Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
Click on tools option then from the drop down list Internet Options
Select the "Connections" tab, and click the "LAN Settings" button.
Delete the proxy server address and port from the "Proxy Server" settings and clear the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" check box.


Clear the check box beside the "Automatically detect settings" and "Use automatic configuration script" options in the "Automatic Configuration" section of the "LAN Settings" dialog window. Click "OK."
Click "Apply" and then "OK" to save these changes and close the "Internet Options" dialog window.
Close all Internet Explorer browser windows for these changes to take effect.

Hola someone tell me how to change up into proxy server help.


What is your default browser? Settings for using a Proxy server differs from each browser. For example, The settings for Mozilla Firefox browser are as follows,
  1. Click Tools->Options;
  2. "General", "Connection Settings";
  3. Select "Manual Proxy Configuration";
  4. Enter proxy IP and port to appropriate fields;
  5. Click OK to close Connection Settings;
  6. Click OK to close Options;
  7. Reload browser.
You must also be aware that the use of proxy servers without the express permission from the owner of the proxy server may be illegal in some states and/or countries. Use at your own risk.
Using a Proxy server masks your real IP address with a masked IP address. You can ensure this by visiting www.IP-Details.Com and check your IP before and after using a Proxy server.

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.

Can't Connect to the Internet


Hi,

Two things you can try before trying your browser/Internet connection:
1. Right click on the Wireless Network Connection Icon, click on Repair. Allow the computer time to repair its WiFi connection and some other settings;
2. Right click on the Wireless Network Connection Icon, click on Status. Click on properties button, select TCP/IP (Internet Protocol), click on Properties button, verify that the option "Obtain IP address automatically is ticked, OK, OK.
3. In your browsers, verify/modify settings:
In Mozilla, click on Tools, Options, Advanced tab, Network tab, Settings button, tick "Auto-detect proxy settings for this connection, OK, OK;
In IE, Tools, Internet Options, Connections tab, LAN settings button, check "Automatically detect settings" (& pls make sure there is no check mark on the Proxy server), OK, Advance tab, check Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections.
In Opera, Tools, Preferences, Advanced tab, Network, Proxy server buttons, check "Enable HTTP 1.1 for proxy, OK, OK.

Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information. Hope that this be of some help/idea.

Good luck and kind regards.
