How to set a proxy server or a gateway for a wifi connection

Hy,

I have connected to my lan through wifi. My only problem is that I have to set up a proxy server or I have to specify an IP for the gateway. 

Unfortunately I was not able to do any of these actions. So now, I'm connected to the LAN but I can't use it. 

With another LAN (my home LAN) that has no proxy server it all work fine.

 

Thank you all in advance

Best regards

Lelio

Hi Lelio,

 

I also have the same problem with you. Couldn't find any help from other forum. Hope we could get any help from BB expert here.

 

Warm regards,

To sync BB with outlook just use the USB cable and the BB desktop software.

Re: How to set a proxy server or a gateway for a wifi connection

I have the same problem.  I can connect to my work's WiFi fine using the Hotspot Browser but I need to set a http proxy to browse the Internet.  Is there a place to set this?  I can't seem to find it.

 

TIA.

Re: How to set a proxy server or a gateway for a wifi connection

I have exactly the same problem!  

 

Can someone please help.  

 

It is so strange RIM unnecessarily complicated this part of this beautiful smartphone.  

 

Wi-Fi on my new device is essentially useless if I somehow cannot set it to use a proxy server.

Re: How to set a proxy server or a gateway for a wifi connection

I also have the same problem.

 

I use BB to hook on my corporate wifi network for Internet access, but my corporate network requires proxy setting.

Until now, I found no way to assign proxy setting on my BB, so I can successfully connect wifi, but no use.

 

I also notice that my BB doesn't have Internet Browser.

I have only one option to use, which is Blackberry Browser.

 

BTW, I use BB Curve.

 

Anyone can help. Thank you in advance.
