I've been trying to update several antiviruses, they can't find server. Duck Duck Go app can't access internet too. Google Play and Chrome works fine. I'm using wi-fi shared by my laptop, in properties: WAP & WPA2 Personal, mode -infrasturcture.


Are there any proxy settings to access your WiFi? (proxy settings might be provided by your network provider). Most of the apps can't access the proxy settings provided by the android. For resolving that you can use ProxyDroid app (but it needs root-access).

  • Is there an antivirus that works ok with these settings ? – R S Sep 15 '15 at 8:11
  • @RS No, all/most of the antivirus apps can't access the system's proxy settings. You need root access for that. So rooting your device is the only option. – Vamsi Sep 15 '15 at 10:20
  • @Vamsi, if all/most, then the answer is "probably". I had no proxy settings. What should I type in there ? – R S Sep 15 '15 at 13:36
  • @RS Please check your internet settings. You are able to access internet in your laptop right? So go to internet options in your laptop (open control panel->internet options->connections->lan settings). What do you mean by wifi shared by your laptop? Did you create a hotspot in your laptop? – Vamsi Sep 16 '15 at 7:08
  • @Vamsi, my laptop has internet connection via cable, I share it with my android by Wi-Fi, I'm using Ubuntu (I did like this ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2014/06/…) – R S Sep 16 '15 at 15:46
