Using GPO you can simply set up PROXY settings and disallow users to access network confogiuration. But normally, regular users cannot modify NIC configuration, so please ensure that your users are not Power Users or Administrators on their workstations.

For PROXY settings, please check this node
User Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Internet Explorer Maintenance -> Connection
and modify "Automatic Browser Configuration" or "Proxy settings"

for LAN configuration, modify appropriate node under
User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Network Connections
there are many useful policies

After changing those policies, apply GPO to OU where users are located. All of them are users settings.

How do you lock the home page so the user can not change the home page when they open IE?

Hi, no problem :)

There is also node for that under
User Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Internet Explorer Maintenance -> URLs
and there modify "Important URLs" and tick on "Customize Home page URL"

That's all
