You can't.  Unless you can stop connections to port 80 to addresses outside
the local network, people can just connect to wherever they please.

Get rid of the Netgear router, and put a Linux firewall/router/DHCP server
in there instead.  If you're really squeezed for machines (can't afford a
486?) then put the Squidguard machine in as the router.
