    Hate to say but I don't believe android will do proxies natively.... but if u have a working android market... I think there's an app there that will allow them. Just do a search for proxy...

    Sorry to be vague... I only came across the app in passingg looking for a proxy style tehering app for my Droid...

    Proxy Server by IP or buy name like myuniv.tc.net:5050 with a port to be open. You have something like that? Are you using a wireless router in your dorm room. I was looking deeper into WiFi Buddy that's in Powertools you can configure to use Static IP, Subnet Mask Gateway, DNS1, DNS2 You can also add VPN (Virtual Private Network). But you use a proxy server to get out.



    Try this WiFi Proxy Settings for Android which you need to download and install.

    Yes I need proxy settings to use the internet at school. On your site it says that the app is not for WIFI. Does this work on wifi now?

    I've installed it it does say WiFi Proxy Settings. I am not behind a Proxy Server so I can't test it you would need to test it and report back here your results. Thanks

    Unfortunately my gentouch's screen has a bad dead spot that calibration will not fix so I will be returning it tomorrow. When I get a new tablet I will test it!

    Android Proxy settings

    Source of the following excerpt: Connect to Wi-Fi networks - Android OS Help Configure proxy settings for a Wi-Fi network

    Some network administrators require you to connect to internal or external network resources via a proxy server. By default, the Wi-Fi networks you add are not configured to connect via a proxy, but you can change that for each Wi-Fi network you've added.
    Proxy settings are used by Browser but may not be used by other apps.

    1. Touch & hold a network in the list of Wi-Fi networks you've added.
    2. Touch Modify network in the dialog that opens.
    3. Select Show advanced options.
    4. If the network has no proxy settings, touch None under Proxy Settings, then touch Manual in the menu that opens.
    5. Enter the proxy settings supplied by your network administrator.
    6. Touch Save.

    The proxy settings apply only to the Wi-Fi network you modified. To change the proxy settings for other Wi-Fi networks, modify them individually.
