I am a teacher and my school uses a proxy server. I can connect to the wifi just fine, but I can't do anything because I can't set a proxy server. Is there a way to do this either in the webOS browser or somewhere else? if not, is this something that can be added in the next update?

Just an update if anyone is still having problems with this. I've been helping a school who've taken a shipment of 30 without realising the hassle involved with setting up a proxy.
The device needs to be in developer mode, which can be acheived by typing "upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart" without the quotes into the "JustType" section, and selecting Developer Mode Enabler.
You will then need to download the webOS emulator software from HP, which will enable you to use the "novaterm" command in your command line utility.
Once you have all this in place you need to plug the device in (not usb storage mode) and open up your command line. Type "novaterm" which will connect you as root user within your device (don't make any sudden movements!).
With all this sorted, you need to type in the following command:
luna-send -n 1 palm://com.palm.connectionmanager/configureNwProxi
This should return the line
Once you've done this, type exit and press enter, this should restore you to your current machine. Unplug the device and restart it, you should now be able to surf through your proxy!
In order to remove the proxy settings, replace "add" with "rmv".
Hope this has been of some help to the people trying to connect through a proxy!

Thanks for helping on this topic, I'm also trying to set up a proxy server. I have managed to use novaterm to acces the root of the device, however when I tried the command you suggest it returns this error:
