Detect proxy for WiFi

2012-12-11, 23:40 PM


I was in a client site and neither my Droid4 nor Xoom would connect out to the Internet. It showed network connected (IP address given). My Lenovo laptop did not connect either until another techy said look at LAN settings. I checked automatically detect settings on the laptop and was connected through to the Internet.



 



I do not see a similar function on the phone and droid. Since I was in Europe at the time, WiFi was better than network data usage ($$$).



 



 Is there a setting in the Droid & Xoom?

This path requires knowing the proxy server/IP. What I need is to automatically detect and populate the proxy settings. This is what MS Internet Explorer options does.
