Something is not clear to me.
If you check my iptables I am sending to transparent proxies only
eth0, that is the internal network card: therefore any connection
coming from other networked PC is proxied, but not the requests coming
from the router itself (that are not proxied, in my undestanding..)
Furthermore any request from network (wget, yum) is managed o.k, that
means that squid is running fine...

I am a dead point (not very important,as the router is working) and I
am not either a Linux superespert or a network magician... :-)
