I am in an RV park using park WIFI most times. The process I use is to find one several park networks, connect to one, open a browser, complete login info with my site # and password. At that point I am online, slow as it is.
Too often this does not work and I get the message "Unable to connect to proxy server". I have no clue what this means. Sometimes I just reboot the computer and the issue disappears. Sometimes it does not disappear and I'm out of luck. I don't understand the proxy "thing" and it is not something I've been told about and it's not anything I've ever needed to be concerned about with this laptop and park WIFI. I have looked in Setting at the proxy setting page but it makes no sense to me. I see a reference to setting up a VPN and I do use Hotspot Shield VPN but it's been on the laptop for months and has not been an issue. Ny OS is Win7.
Can someone please explain and tell me what's happening and how to work around the problem.
