Very tricky. The Sugar side won't wandle this situation very well at
all. GNOME can handle it.

Under Sugar

 - You may be able to set the proxy setting with a pac file. Pia Waugh
reported once that it worked with 8.2.1, but I don't think she
documented it.

 - Hidden SSIDs are not handled well at all by Sugar's network neighbourhood.
