Hi, When trying to use my MacBook Pro 13" at school, I have to connect to the school network which uses the county proxy so that we can't view explicit stuff or something. All Windows laptops connect perfectly when the proxy address and portal are put in, as do all the people with Macs that I have spoken to, but mine simply won't. I have spent ages messing around trying to get it to work but it won't, no matter what the proxy settings are set as. Safari tells me that the Mac cannot access the proxy, as does Google Chrome when I tried that as an alternative. Is there anything that anyone can think of that would cause this peculiarity? On another note, my laptop loves to crash. I get the spinning wheel appearing often, it will hang and then continue as normal which is really quite annoying. I have has the laptop since July last year and it has happened from the beginning. I have tried cleaning the disk with disk utility, but I have no idea how to make it run smoothly. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Many thanks, Dom.
