One of my relatives has an Amazon Echo Dot and a Fire TV Stick. Both are connected to the same WiFi.

Recently, their internet provider changed the proxy settings such that the default proxy no longer works. They have provided a set of proxies that can be used instead. We have manually set those proxies in our laptop/mobiles, and they work fine.

However, we have been unable to configure the proxy for the two Amazon devices. I searched Google, and for the Echo Dot, went to manual setup, but under advanced settings, there were options for IP, Subnet Mask, DNS 1 and DNS 2. No proxy. In the Fire TV stick as well, we could not find a way to configure the proxy server.

I also found that it is not possible to set proxy server in any router. (They have a TP-Link router.)

Are these simple settings really unavailable on these high-end devices? Or are we missing it?

N.B.: The proxy servers are provided as x.y.z.w, where w has four values. One port is given too.

ISPs in most of the world haven't forced us through proxy servers for about 25 years so I'm not sure you will get much help here I'm afraid.

Definitely not SO because the question is not suited to SO. But SU, let's see.
