Step 1: Check the SwitchyOmega plugin settings

Make sure the proxy server is configured correctly

Open the SwitchyOmega plugin and check whether the currently used proxy configuration is correct, including the proxy protocol, address and port.

Check the proxy mode

Make sure the selected proxy mode meets the current network environment and requirements, such as direct connection, PAC automatic configuration, proxy server, etc.

Step 2: Verify network connection and server status

Test network connection

Use a browser to visit a website under a non-proxy to confirm that the local network connection is normal.

Check the status of the proxy server

Visit the proxy server provider's website or verify that the proxy server is available and stable through other means.

Step 3: Adjust and optimize settings

Optimize proxy rules

If you use automatic switching rules, check whether the rule list is configured correctly and ensure that the matching conditions and actions are set correctly.

Adjust the proxy mode

Try to switch to different proxy modes, such as automatic switching and manual switching, to determine whether the problem is related to a specific mode.

Step 4: Deal with network anomalies and security issues

Solve DNS resolution problems

Switch to a different DNS server or manually configure DNS to eliminate problems caused by DNS resolution.

Eliminate security software interference

Temporarily turn off the firewall, security software, or browser extensions to test whether it affects the proxy connection.
