wget error:

im using redhat 9.0 and wget 1.9.. while trying to connect to an url, it keeps trying with this message
failed: No route to host. Retrying.
On pinging to that ip , it gives "Destination Host unreachable".. im using proxy settings to access the net. will this be a problem in wget or ping.. is there any proxy settings to be changed to ping outside our network.. im new to network concepts. can anyone pl help me?
