    Hi,

    So, finally I seem to be able to add a proxy to my browser. That's great as it means whilst on campus at university, I can connect to the wifi.

    I then come home, of course the browser still trying to connect through the proxy, can no longer connect.

    So, that's my problem. Is there a way that it can automatically detect what network it is using, and so detect if it should use a proxy or not? I can do this with "alternate" settings on windows, or network by network on OSX, but on my Android phone it seems I cannot.
    I don't want to keep having to go all the way through and adding in the proxy, or disabling it each time I go to and from uni. Perhaps there is an app that can do that?

    Is there a way to do this currently without rooting?

    Thanks,

    Just curious how you set proxy in browser. i have a galaxy S running 2.3 and I could not find proxy settings in the browser. Did I miss something? Thanks!
