How to connect to a proxy server with a router

Greetings
I know I must be a bit thick, but it's late and I'm tired......

I want to connect to a proxy server to get a licence for the WMVHD version of Step into Liquid:
I connect to the net thro' a wireless router:

I go to Internet options;
select the Connections tab;
select Lan settings;
check Use a proxy server;
enter ip address & port

The puter doesn't connect to the net

I'm obviously not understanding something quite fundamental, but have no idea what :mad:

If someone would be kind enough to sort me out, I'd be very grateful

Pete
 
At face value, it would suggest that the PC doesn't know how to reach the IP address you are entering into the proxy settings.

If you run a command prompt can you ping that address?
