How To Configure Android 3.2.1 Proxy Setting?

Here, the guide is made with reference to Acer Iconia Tab A500 running Android 3.2.1 (a.k.a. Honeycomb):

1. Click on the time display at bottom-right corner followed by Settings icon.

Access to Acer A500 Settings page.

2. Click Settings from the overlay menu. Make sure the tablet is already connected to Wi-Fi access point (AP) and then only click “Wi-Fi settings”.

3. Perform tap-and-hold on the connected Wi-Fi AP until you see the “modify network” option pops up and then click on it. You should see “connected” on the first AP displayed in “Wi-Fi Networks” section, if the Android tablet is connecting to the wireless network.
