Proxies offer a variety of advantages to network connections, such as more security and a reduction in bandwidth. You can set them up at your home if experiencing a slow internet connection. Windows 10’s Settings app and Control Panel are where you can set up proxy settings. If you’re using a proxy for school or work, make sure that the Use automatic detection settings and Use setup scripts are On under the Automatic proxy Setup section.

Open the Internet Options window by clicking on the Control Panel icon or by typing “Internet options” into the Search bar. Open the LAN settings by clicking the Advanced tab. In the Address and Port fields, enter the information of your proxy provider. Then, tick the box that says Use an external proxy server for your LAN. Close the Internet Options window.

Sometimes, malware may mess with your network proxy settings to prevent you from being online. If the error “Windows could not automatically detect check this link right here now this network’s proxy settings” persists, run a scan with an anti-malware software and see if it helps.

If the error continues, you can try resetting the proxy settings through the Registry. Be careful, as modifying the Registry can cause irreparable system damage. We recommend making backups prior to proceeding with this method. To do this do this, press the Win + R keys simultaneously. Enter cmd. This will launch classic Command Prompt.
