I've not actually done this, but it does seem possible.  However, you will need
to use two parent caches, one accessible via the router and the other via the
modem, and have your routing table setup such that connections to each cache go
over the appropriate link.

Define an acl for each of the two ip address ranges, setup two different
`cache_peer' directives and define a cache_peer_access for each one, using the
two acls you defined earlier.  Then setup a couple of `never_direct' directives
for the two acls to force all queries via the appropriate parent cache, and
hence the appropriate link.

Read the squid FAQ at http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/FAQ/, especially question
4.9 (never_direct) and section 10 (access control).

Cheers,

John
