Apologies if this has been covered and I've not been able to find it yet.

I've recently bought a Galaxy Tab 10.1 which will connect to the school network with no issues (excellent when used with Unified Remote). I've got the current school proxy settings on the wireless however whenever I try to connect to the net I get the error message "Authentication via the proxy server was unsuccessful. There are no options that I can find for inputting user/pass and the only apps I can find to help with this require rooting the device. I'm not totally against rooting and if it is the only option then so be it, but before I risk this does anyone have a solution?
