If your workplace uses a proxy server, you may need to configure your Galaxy S4 with manual proxy settings in order to access the Internet.
- On your Galaxy S4, go to home Settings > Wi-Fi
- Tap and hold the Wi-Fi network ID (SSID) you’re connected to, and then select Modify network config.
- Check Show advanced options.
- Scroll down to select Manual for Proxy settings.
- Next, fill in the Proxy host name and Proxy port fields with the appropriate information.
- Tap Save to save the settings.
- Launch the Internet browser to start browsing.
By doing the above, all HTTP traffic that goes through the Wi-Fi connection will be proxied, which means the Internet access should work with any browsers such as the stock browser, Chrome, Firefox, Dolphin and etc. on your phone.
- While the proxy settings at Wi-Fi should work with any browsers on your Galaxy S4, but in my testing, I found that it didn’t work with One browser and Maxthon.
- I’ve written a similar guide for Galaxy S3 in the past. In that post, I’ve also included 2 additional methods: Configure proxy server at the browser level and Connect to Tor secure network. They’re pretty much applicable to Galaxy S4 as well.
