    Out of what ever reason, it might not be getting the proxy information correctly. Why don't you simply install without any internet connection and the internet should work later so you can do all updates?

    The internel connection during install is more of a recommendation, not a requirement. The cd has everything you need.

    +1 to Darkod's suggestion. When you want to connect to your school's proxy later then, you just need to add a line to /etc/apt/apt.conf- see here.

    Re: internet connection during installation

    I agree with both prior posts, but would add that you don't want any network connection at all during the install. I did a few installs with a network connection, but no internet and it took over an hour due to all the timeouts necessary. Without any network connection, it was 15 minutes to install.

    Re: internet connection during installation

    Did you tell APT to use a proxy inside /etc/atp/apt.conf?

    Acquire {
    Retries "0";
    HTTP {
    Proxy "http://proxy.whatever.com:8080";
    };
    };

    If authentication is required, then use the $(PROXY_USER) $(PROXY_PASS) as explained in the manpage.

    man apt.conf should explain everything. Manpages usually explain all.
