Look at the Wifi settings (Settings/Wifi/blue arrow next to listed networks), under HTTP Proxy at the bottom, make sure it's not trying to connect to a Manual or Auto Proxy. Most Wifi networks have no proxy (off). Actually, most wifi hotspots are working proxy servers. So are most ethernet routers designed for home use. (The large majority of them come pre-configured to appear, to their attached devices, to have address 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 - and addresses that are *not* behind proxy servers have to be globally unique.) It's just that they've made proxy servers good enough that they are normally invisible to the clients; only under special circumstances does the client need to know that there's a proxy server. (The only special circumstance I am aware of is when there are two proxy servers with different public-side IP addresses doing load-balancing, and you want to access a website that objects to you changing IP addresses in mid-session - like a lot of financial-institution websites do. But there may be others.)In fact I occasionally am accessing the internet through a stack of no less than three proxy servers. It just works.If you have internet access, and your IP address begins with any of - 10. ; 172.16. through 172.31. ; 192.168. - then you definitely are using at least one proxy server. Even if your device has no knowledge of it.
