The proxy (on the same computer) handles the connection. I suspect "internal"
does not know the tcp/ip address of my proxy, which I explicitely setfor wget.
Any chance to set is manually?

Could nor find any info how to "switch". InternetX.dll are in modules folder,
should one of these be copied to bin? Or renamed?
