Create a WEGETRC.TXT file and store it in a place like "C:\" and in the file 
have the entries
use_proxy = on

Do not use the SET command.  That is only good for the present shell.
Righ-Click "My Computer" --> properties --> advanced --> environment variables 
--> system 
variables --> new

Variable name:  WGETRC
Variable value:  C:\wgetrc.txt

now just invoke
wget http://android-x86.googlecode.com/files/android-x86-4.0-RC1-eeepc.iso

or invoke a full command line

wget --execute=http_proxy=http://proxy.cite.wa.edu.au:8080
