Have you checked whether "Automatically detect settings" is on or off in Internet options/Connections/LAN Settings? If it is on, it will try to check if proxy is accesible... Also check what programs are loading when you start your laptop. There might be some program in your startup that changes the proxy settings...

Automatically detect is off  then after restart it is on again.

How do I change it if it is in a start up program??
