I am trying to connect to the wifi at starbucks. I've tried severAl different locAtions with wifi and no luck so far! When I clicked "diagnose the problem, it said "verify the current proxy server configuration." I followed the help and support my laptop gave me but I'm now stuck. I went to tools, then Internet options, then LAN settings. But now I have no clue what to do!!!! Help!!!!

Proxy servers serve as the middle man between the Internet and your computer.
Obtain the proxy server settings you need to use.
Open your browser window
Choose "Tools" from your browser’s menu section.
Click "Internet Options" and open the "Connections" tab
Choose "LAN Settings" to open a new window..
Verify the "Use a Proxy Server for your LAN" box is checked and that the address and port match the settings you obtained in Step 1. If you have a script instead of an address and port, be sure the script address is entered under "Automatic Configuration." Also, be sure the check box for "Use Automatic Configuration Script" is checked. Click "OK" to finish.
