[Windows Phone 8.1] Can't connect Windows Phone apps to wifi network with proxy authentication

Q: [Windows Phone 8.1] Can't connect Windows Phone apps to wifi network with proxy authentication

Our school uses proxy that requires username/password authentication to connect on Wifi. Good thing is Windows Phone 8.1 has option to turn proxy on/off and sign in to proxy. The problem is after setting up the network connecting to it, my apps still can't
connect to the network (some apps for example are Facebook app, Skype, other 3rd party apps). The IE and Windows App Store can connect to the network though. I am currently looking for 3rd party app that can provide global proxy authentication so I can connect
my apps to the internet but I can't one.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Not a good idea to put your email address in posts unless you enjoy bots sending you all kind of spam email.

What you are trying to do is called Tethering. Most cell phone providers do have this option but I believe technically you have to pay for it. There are hacks around it though. I know how to do it on my Palm not sure about windows mobile.
I would google search for: htc touch tethering
You will get lots of hits.

Hi . i have a windows 8 laptop and was woundering why i cant use a app like Pandora for my laptop . its in your windows phone app sotre but not for the laptop store?? . i don't understand why. both are the same . or is it the app itself only going for windows phone?? . plzz help i would love to get all access to all apps on windows phone for my laptop. ty

A:Why cant i have windows phone apps on laptop app store

This is intentional for a few reasons.

One, it's not nice to have an app on your Windows Phone simply blown up to a larger screen. The app has to be redeveloped for screen estate and size considerations.

Second is the fact that Windows Phone doesn't have the system contracts bar, or Charms bar, so that can't simply work that way.

Third is that the code itself is different, Windows 8 uses WinRT code, Windows Phone I believe uses the WinPRT coding structure, Xbox One I think uses WinXRT code. These are similar, but different.

The Pandora app probably won't come to Windows 8 anytime soon because... It's called a web browser. This is the thing about Windows 8 is that most developers probably aren't and shouldn't develop app versions of websites. It makes no sense to have a PC that uses typical Desktop web browsers, that have no settings of changing the site from being mobile or Desktop rendered, to have an app for ebay, or Amazon, or Pandora, or Facebook.

Also, who are you directing this at? We're not Microsoft.

I am using Windows 8 Release Preview on my desktop. At present the Windows marketplace has a very limited quantity of apps. I also saw the Windows phone marketplace and it has a lot of apps. I read in the news that it has more than 100000 apps presently. I think it a possibility that when the final version of Windows 8 releases we could also have the opportunity of using Windows Phone apps from the Windows marketplace. Since they too are metro so there is some possibility. What you think about that? Is that a possibility?

A:Would Windows 8 (final) support Windows Phone apps?

I hope so but I heard that the phone apps and the metro apps are in different coding language so that might not work out. Someone else might know better. I really wish that windows phone apps will work on windows 8 though for metro since that would mean a much easier transition if their marketplace is already growing.

Is metro apps built on the same technology as the windows phone apps? I heard Metro apps are built with html or something and is not the same technology as the windows phone apps but just wanted to make sure. If it's not that also seems like a bad idea as transitioning a windows phone app to a metro app might be annoying as they could be completely different platforms to develop for.

Hi,
My Internet suddenly stopped working on my laptop. I can connect fine on my phone, so it doesn't seem to be a problem with the router. Nonetheless I've tried restarting the router but it didn't help (I've restarted my laptop too).
The windows troubleshooter said I'm connected fine and there's no problems, but I still can't access any Web pages. The icon on the task bar seems to be a monitor with a square in the top left corner rather than the usual connection bars.
I'm not on flight mode and there doesn't seem to be any physical switches on my laptop. I'm using Windows 10 and my Internet hasn't been working for around 24 hours now.

My windows mobile won't connect to my laptop (vista). The device seems to be installed as it appears in the device manager, also I hear the sound when I plug it in. I've tried my device on XP and it worked fine, so it's a problem with Vista. I've tried a number of times re installing the device and re installing the software I was given (Windows Mobile Device Center).

A:Windows phone won't connect to pc

I've had it connected to another vista computer and it recognized it straight away and worked perfect. The difference is in device manager it says "Microsoft USB Sync" rather than "Toshiba USB Sync 0700", also it says the drivers are working properly.

So it must be an issue with my laptop. Any other USB device seems to work, so it's strange why this is different

Is there a way I can download Microsoft USB Sync drivers? Every link I click tells me to use windows update.

Hello everyone! I'm new here and I'd really be most grateful to get a solution to my issue. Ok
I have a Acer Aspire 5250 with Windows 7 Ultimate. It has been running just fine for a while now but after about 16 hours ago, Ive been having issues connecting to the internet. Everything was fine until I turned on my laptop yesterday and I had to input my WEP key again for my home network. During this time It said "unidentified network", "limited access" or none at all. Then after a bit It said I had connected to my home network, with access but there was none!

Now here is where it gets weird. I have a iPhone that has had no problems but now whenever theyre on simultaneously, my laptop sort of kicks my iPhone off of the network.
Now my ps3, 360 and psp work just fine but it seems after each reboot of my laptop, my iphone wifi tells me that I have the incorrect password. When my laptop is off, its fine and It just reconnects to wifi on its own.

But honestly here my biggest issue is with my laptop. I dont know what to do, Im not a computer wiz and I need help.

Hi All,

I have a Dell laptop running Windows 8.1 connected to the internet through a mobile broadband connection. I am trying to share this connection with my Android phone (Samsung Galaxy Pocket) by creating a Wi-Fi hotspot but nothing I do seems to work.

Here?s the problem: I can create the Wi-Fi hotspot and connect to it on my phone but there is no internet connectivity; i.e. my phone says it?s connected but every time I try to browse the internet or use anything on my phone that requires internet connection it fails to load. Internet works fine (perfectly up to speed) on my laptop.

The problem is not my phone; it connects fine to other Wi-Fi networks e.g. Wi-Fi routers etc. It is as if my computer is only sharing a very slow internet connection.

I have tried using the built in sharing option (i.e. PC settings>Network>Connections>MTN-SA>Share this connection), desktop programs such as Connectify or MyPublicWifi (which stop my computer from connecting to mobile broadband at all), and command prompt (netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=NetworkName key=MyPassword) but they all have the same problem that I described earlier.

If anyone has any ideas I would be grateful to hear them!
Thanks,

So I have found myself more addicted to my laptop since I installed win 8 on it. Everything I read in the past about win 8 being more for touch screens I was like well I'm not going to upgrade my pc then but now that I have it i'm actually really liking it.

I like the whole metro side of win 8, I mean it really has me thinking. If I can have the same on all my devices I just may dump my Iphone and ipad. I'm assuming the apps on the desktop will be the same for the win 8 phone right? If that is the case, see you later apple I never cared for you much any way...

I have to be honest I don't like switching back to the desktop, I'm sure the desktop will be gone by win 9 or 10 once win eight takes off and third party software goes to the metro side.

One last thing I like to note is if Microsoft promotes win 8 for the phone, tablet and pc all together instead of saying win eight is for touch screens they blow this thru the roof!

A:Same metro apps on win 8 phone?

Very much a big YES! The new and also disappointing to some feature of Windows Phone 8 is that it has a shared core with Windows, probably obviously WinRT code.

What that enables is an awesome plethora of options, games, and apps. Unlike ios, where the OS doesn't take full advantage of the device, the new WinRT apps will. An app built for Windows 8 will have a ridiculously easy port over to Windows Phone 8. WP 8 doesn't have a Charms bar, but it will have UI elements to interact with settings and such. That's what I really like about the new metro ecosystem Microsoft is building. It offers a very consistent user experience, but takes advantage of the devices capabilities. An app on Windows Phone 8 takes advantage of the screen size how the user interacts with, meaning the little ... icon for more and swiping left and right to navigate through the apps. That same app can be on Windows 8, but takes advantage of the Charms bar for search, sharing, and settings. Since a tablet PC has more screen estate, more can be shown. And to navigate through the content, it's a simple scroll.

Basically, get rid of the iphone and ipad!

I find it OK to switch between Desktop and Start Screen. It kind of makes me think of the jump list in Windows Phone, where shows a whole screen of little tiles with a letter on it to jump to that section of file names.

You know, I think that could be potentially a good marketing strategy for Windows Phone 8. Power of the PC in your hands? I don't know, ... Read more

I'm told that apps available for the iPad do not all necessarily play on a MacBook. Not sure if this is true. What is the situation with Win 8 devices? Do all apps meant to play on a Win 8 phone or on a Win 8 tablet (including the Surface RT) also play on a regular PC fitted with Win 8? I can imagine that some programs meant to be played on a PC fitted with Win 8 won't play on a Win 8 phone. But do all apps meant to play on a Win 8 phone -- except phone-specific apps -- play on a Win 8 PC as well? I'm thinking of all game apps, but also of phone & tablet utilities that might be handy on a PC. Does the Win 8 exercise aim to fully integrate and standardise the use of Windows over diverse devices? Or do I have this wrong?

A:Do Win 8 Phone and Surface RT Apps all play on Win 8 PC?

Most apps in the Windows store will work identically on a tablet and pc (even RT). There are some apps known as "hybrid" apps that are really Win32 apps that have a Metro veneer. Chrome and IE are like this. Those kinds of apps won't work on RT (well, obviously IE does, but I mean apps that are like that).

Windows 8 Phone apps are currently not compatible, but Microsoft will have a new version out soon that will bridge the compatibility. Unlike previous versions of Windows Phone, Windows Phone 8 is based on the same RT OS as the tablets, but has limitations based on the reduced capabilities of the phone that Microsoft is currently working around.

Greetings all. I just have a curiosity about something to do with digital phone applications. I am usually gaming in the evenings and also have digital phone service. Since I am wearing a headset with a mic already, is there an application that you can run on your system in the background that allows you to answer your digital phone through your computer? For example, if I'm playing and the phone rings, instead of getting up and going in the other rooms to get the phone, I could just hit a hot key that allows me to answer the phone without having to leave the game? I figured since the cable and phone were coming through the same modem, it could be intercepted by an app and allowed to be answered on the PC. Any thoughts would be cool. Thanks.

Okay I am running Windows Vista Business and Squid 2.7 Stable 5

I just wanted to know if is possible to perform Windows based Authentication before a users can authenticate successfully. I have been playing around and I am currently using MAC Address Authentication. I am just wondering how I can do MAC and User/Authentication at the same time?

I'm not on a Windows Domain is this makes a difference I just want local accounts to be allowed access.

I am required to use this service called Abtran to schedule something. They charge $2.48 a minute for the phone call using an 800 or 900 number. Can I use PC to phone using their number, to get free or very low rates? I think I have a PC microphone or headset laying around somewhere. Will it work on dial-up? I don't have high speed Internet.

My sound card should work fine, and I have good speakers

A:PC to phone as alternative to exorbitant phone rates

Have you looked into using Skype? According to Skype it is dial-up compatible. Not sure what the rates are after the first call.

At one time, I could dial phone numbers from the old Phone Dialer and Cardfile programs, but can no longer do so - the connection just doesn't make. Maybe installing or updating some non-related MS program deleted a vital link. Any suggestions?

I know this is a PC based forum, but I had a question about phones, lately I have been having phone calls, where I have had other people's calls coming through into my call, how can I get this to stop happening? I have heard it happens through such carriers as Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, etc.

A:Phone Calls crossing with another person phone?

You do not state if this is Mobile or Landline.

Landline phone:
Check the wiring at the switch something may be crossed.

May need to change the channel on wireless phone may begetting bleed over.

Mobile phone:
Take the phone to a store and have them run a diagnostic on the phone. May need to be reprogrammed.

Yes they may charge you for this.
