    You have tried
    net-setup eth?

    What card do you have?
    Which driver are you using?

    Check this page for more info on setting up the connection to the proxy server.
    If you haven't done so already.

    been there done that, sorry the latest thing ive done to try and help is
    setup a file called 99local with the http proxy.

    what do you think of this?
    localhost etc # dmesg | grep ra0
    [ 31.955788] Device driver ra0 lacks bus and class support for being resumed.

    also i did
    echo $http_proxy and got back my proxy and it was correct

    If you have gone through all of that, I am not sure how to help you.
    Hopefully someone else who has experience with proxies will see this thread and be able to help more.
