I have an HP All in One Desktop Computer running 8.1 that will not connect to the internet.  I am running the computer wirelessly and it shows that it is connected.  List all of thevarious networks close to me.  After making sure it is connected, I've tried to go online with both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.  Neither will connect.  Says there is a proxy server problem.


I've gone into Internet Settings and turned off the proxy server tab.  I also chose the box that say"Automatically Detect Settings".  I've looked at other computers and this is how they were set up.


Even trying to change the settings, I still am not able to connect to the internet.  I am using a friends computer.


Can anyone help me.  Thanks in advance.
