A network proxy acts as an intermediary between the local network (such as all devices in the company or in a building) and the internet. It can add an additional layer of privacy, security and performance enhancement when connected to Wi-Fi or Ethernet.

To set up a proxy in Windows 10 you can either use the settings app or manually modify your configuration. If you’re using the Settings app, click Proxy under Network & Internet. You can skip this step if the Use a Proxy Server switch is already turned off. If not, you’ll have to turn it on. Fill in the details of your proxy server and port.

If you use a proxy in a work or school environment it is possible that you will be prompted by the IT administrator to use the http://alicehopper.review/error-windows-could-not-detect-this-network-s-proxy-settings Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Protocol (WPAD) script to set up the proxy automatically. This method is more reliable than a manual configuration.

It is also recommended to disable any third-party software that could interfere with or alter your network settings. This includes antivirus, firewall and VPN programs. This is particularly useful in the event that you encounter an error message stating “Windows couldn’t detect the Proxy settings of this network automatically.”

If all else fails then you can try a system reset. This will eliminate any drivers and programs that were installed prior to the restore point was set up, allowing you to restore the default settings of your system. Hopefully, this will resolve the problem and allow you to reconnect to the internet, without the error message appearing.
