    Default Error code: ERR_PROXY_CONNECTION_FAILED, on Nexus7wifi2013KitKat


    Running Nexus 7 2013 (2nd Gen) WiFi, kitkat

    Wifi shows strong connection, detailed error message,

    Unable to connect to the proxy server, A proxy server is a server that acts as an intermediary between your device and other servers.

    Your system is configured to use a proxy, but Google Chrome cannot connect to it. All my other wifi devices, phones and laptop connect OK.

    If you use a proxy server...
    Check your proxy settings or contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working.

    This is beyound me, I was using wugfresh to root, got it unlocked but never got it to root, while doing so, there are two kitkat os options, and when I finally tried the second one, this happened. All else work fine, just this wifi connection error, I reset wugfresh to the first kitkat os version and tried rooting again but no change in proxy error.

    I've tried all the obvious, shut off and restart, plus, wiped and factory restore to original.
    The Practical BBQ'r !

    I also had the same problem. I`ve resolved it by deleting the profile of my network and re-creating it.

    Thanks Magni Fox. I had this same problem on my Nexus 10 4.4.4 It has been half running now for days. I did three factory resets, each with different results, but all with the proxy error. When I deleted the WiFi connection and remade it, it disappeared. Perhaps this shows under the "advanced" option? Have to check that.
