I have an Unrooted Sony Xperia tipo running 4.0.4.
I have a Wi-Fi at home which uses an authenticated proxy. I have managed to apply the proxy and also have managed to use authentication.
The trouble.
Any app on my phone is unable to use the Wi-Fi.
Is there any way I can at least get Google Play running without rooting my phone?

How did you apply the proxy settings. (This is really a comment. Can a mod please change it) – Jasjeev Singh Feb 15 '13 at 14:55
@JasjeevSingh A comment after 12 days! Well, I used the advanced settings which can be opened by ticking the advanced setting check box, when first setting up the connection with WiFi. – pradyunsg Feb 16 '13 at 14:59

Use Drony:

If you need any help regarding how to configure, this can help.
