A proxy server is an intermediary between your computer and the Internet, often used to hide your real location and allow you to access websites that would otherwise be blocked.
If you’re having trouble connecting to the Internet, it’s possible that it has been set to use a proxy server.
To disable proxy in Internet Explorer:
- From the Tools or gear menu, select Internet options.
- In the Connections tab, click LAN settings.
- Uncheck all of the displayed options except Automatically detect settings.
- Click OK, and OK.
- Close your browser and then open it again.
