We need to see the firewall / NAT configuration.

Most likely the packages from the network get NATed  
before they even hit squid, therefore Squid will see as source  
address not the local network, but the public IP address of the  

You will need to make sure that you do NOT translate (NAT) any  
connections from your local network to the public Internet Port 80.  
Since Squid is acting as a proxy, it will fetch the page form the  
public Internet and deliver it to your local client.

I hope that helps,
