Exactly, so your proxy does connect but is not authenticated. So the country is detected but you don't have internet connection. The only way to authenticate the proxy is to open a webbrowser and enter your credentials there, but then I found that the proxy only worked inside that browser, so not for other apps, so that's pretty useless.
So yeah... The easiest way is to just set up a proxy yourself without credentials. It's pretty safe because you'll be the only one who knows it exists.
