I'm new to OS X and I want to connect my Macintosh through a LAN with wired connection using proxy settings and not using the WiFi connection.

How do I connect it to the LAN and use the internet?

Also if your are referring to a Macintosh Computer please specify what model it is, and if you know, what operating system version it is running? – MrDaniel Apr 26 '12 at 11:47
What is providing the connection through the wired network? A router? A modem? More info needed. – Dave M Apr 26 '12 at 11:54

Well, it's obvious that your LAN connection uses an Ethernet cable. We need more info, please. Why can't you just plug it in? – slhck Apr 26 '12 at 11:59

You take your Ethernet cable …

… and plug it into the Ethernet port.

Then go to  » System Preferences » Network, select your Ethernet connection, and click on Advanced.

Here, under Proxies, set up your proxies.
