Tested.. Its working in Android 5.1.0, Dont forget to add permissions

      WifiConfiguration GetCurrentWifiConfiguration(WifiManager manager)
        if (!manager.isWifiEnabled())
            return null;

        List<WifiConfiguration> configurationList = manager.getConfiguredNetworks();
        WifiConfiguration configuration = null;
        int cur = manager.getConnectionInfo().getNetworkId();
        for (int i = 0; i < configurationList.size(); ++i)
            WifiConfiguration wifiConfiguration = configurationList.get(i);
            if (wifiConfiguration.networkId == cur)
                configuration = wifiConfiguration;

        return configuration;

    public void setWifiProxySettings5()
        //get the current wifi configuration
        WifiManager manager = (WifiManager)getSystemService(Context.WIFI_SERVICE);
        WifiConfiguration config = GetCurrentWifiConfiguration(manager);
        if(null == config)

            //linkProperties is no longer in WifiConfiguration
            Class proxyInfoClass = Class.forName("android.net.ProxyInfo");
            Class[] setHttpProxyParams = new Class[1];
            setHttpProxyParams[0] = proxyInfoClass;
            Class wifiConfigClass = Class.forName("android.net.wifi.WifiConfiguration");
            Method setHttpProxy = wifiConfigClass.getDeclaredMethod("setHttpProxy", setHttpProxyParams);

            //Method 1 to get the ENUM ProxySettings in IpConfiguration
            Class ipConfigClass = Class.forName("android.net.IpConfiguration");
            Field f = ipConfigClass.getField("proxySettings");
            Class proxySettingsClass = f.getType();

            //Method 2 to get the ENUM ProxySettings in IpConfiguration
            //Note the $ between the class and ENUM
            //Class pr
