Check you IP-address from cli:
If you use DHCP-server to get the IP-address then issue...
dhchlient eth0
If you have ip-address then test it out on cli first like ping some host on LAN and then on internet. Ping the proxy to see if the connection works.

If these don't work, try to disable SELinux and Firewall and retry to see if they cause problems.
