How to adjust Thomson router when using proxy server

I have a Thomson TWG 870 router from Cabelecom.

I switch to a UK based proxy to connect to UK 'only' websites e.g. BBC iPLayer.

However when I use this option the router continues to broadcast on wifi my normal cablecom connection i.e.swiss

How do I alter my Thomson configuration to broadcast the proxy address and connection when I need to? and if so will this be a permanent setting?

I understand how to access the router configuration on my browser, but reluctant to change any settings without proper understanding.

Any help from those with better knowledge of the mysteries of router and wifi configuration will be appreciated.

Thompson routers are made to fill the rubbish bin!
