    Proxy Settings for school internet


    Hi, i can not work this out and have looked everywhere.

    I dont really understand proxys and i need to connect to my school internet.

    I am on windows 8 running bootcamp and dont use the mac partition anymore.

    the details for this network are
    i know the ssid, i know the password.

    but on a mac you press advance then proxy settings and configure http and https which has proxy ip and port(i have the details) and i type in my school username and password the school provided to me.

    how do i get to this stage on windows, i cant find it anywhere? does it come up when i choose the network, because im trying to do this before ive been to school after holidays?

    cheers
