Why is my computer unable to connect to the proxy server?


James Hunt


If you are not using a Proxy Server (VPN), you can fix this error by disabling the option to use Proxy Settings on your PC and scanning your computer for malware.

Apart from faulty Proxy settings, this error can also be caused by network and browser related problems.

1. Disable Proxy Settings

If you are not using Proxy Server or VPN, you should be able to fix the error by disabling proxy settings on your computer.

2. Open Settings and click on Network and Internet tab.

3.On the next screen, scroll down and click on Proxy in the left-pane. In the right-pane, scroll down and uncheck Use a Proxy server option.

Make sure that ‘Address’ and ‘Port’ Fields under ‘Manual Proxy Setup’ section are empty.

After disabling Proxy server, open the web browser on your computer and see if you are able to connect to internet.

If the IP needs to be an e-commerce platform or social media, consider selecting roxlabs dedicated computer room IP. Fast IP, easy to set, unlimited traffic.
