One solution is create or edit the file /etc/apt/apt.conf ans add the line:

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://user:pass@192.X.X.X:8080";

Where you have to put your own user and pass, and the right address
and port of the proxy

Following from that, you could probably specify the proxy in Synaptic using the same format.
