Are you using »cache:8080/?

If you want to disable the whole proxy thing go into internet options and click on the connections tab then lan. Uncheck every box in there

I have the same problem whenever my connection gets dropped. Try releasing and renewing your IP. You might have to unplug your modem before doing that. Works for me.

A proxy keeps track of the pages users visit the most, and then store these pages locally to increase loading speeds.
Without a proxy server, your modem goes directly to the internet, with a proxy, it goes to the proxy then the internet, a proxy is also used for security reasons, such as masking your ip.

Most ISP's use proxy servers to keep their cost's down. If you have to download the same file from a server 50 times why not put it on your own server where you don't have to pay for external network bandwidth. If they don't have to pay their backbone for the bandwidth then it saves them money. If Rogers setup their servers correctly it would and should make your downloads and page views faster

But, they don't set it up correctly, it slows some people down, namely me. They should be working harder on it.

That's why I said IF they set it up right it would be good

Try repairing IE.

Goto add/remove ie and hit Repair (or Fix, depends on OS).

Why would you want the proxy? It's bad for you, I noticed the change in my connection, when I tried it, it limited me to a 900/185 connection.
The person wanted to disable proxy, because IE kept detecting proxy.

I dont know who your answer was directed to.

just pointing it out

To Disable Proxy:
Go to Tools >>> Internet Options >>> Connections >>> LAN Settings >>> Uncheck Everything >>> Ok >>> Ok

Then it should work
