I want to implement linux squid proxy server so that i have better
controls that is ( time based restrictions , ip based restrictions and
block certain web sites ) through squid ACLS

I think i have to implement squid as a transparent proxy server with  2
lan cards on the squid server

Hi Simon, you should be able to do all this from within the router if it is a fairly good one....

The Cisco 88x and 89x series definitely do this very well and as for the 88x are ADSL capable! The 89x can be plugged into an ADSL modem or even Metro Ethernet solution or alternately backup line.

Anyhow what I'm trying to say is that it should take off the load of adding extra machines and also reduce overall cost too.

However if you must use a Squid solution then here are some places to start:

apologies for not being able to help further, however I only use squid as reverse proxy in my network environment.... :-)

Hope this gets you started though!
