Windows 7: Proxy through router issue

Proxy through router issue


I have a weird problem. I study in an institute which allows us to access the internet through multiple proxies (proxies through 4) . In order to use multiple devices (smartphone and tablet) from the same LAN port, I have installed a router (Belkin N150) on the LAN connection.

The problem that I have now is that the proxies somehow start refusing connections arbitrarily. If I switch the proxy, then the connection is resumed. But its a hassle when performing e-commerce transactions on browsers. I face the same issue with clients like google talk.

If I disconnect the router and connect the laptop directly to the LAN port, this problem disappears.

Surprisingly, with the router connected, the android devices that I own have no such issues. They connect to the internet normally.

Is there something I need to configure in the router to solve this problem?

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

What happens if you turn off Network Address Translation (NAT) on the Belkin N150? I could not locate an online manual or PDF that would detail how to do that. Maybe you can figure it out via the router's web based interface. But turning off the NAT feature should let each device connected to the router get its own IP from the institute's network.

Make sure that the router's firmware is up to date:
