    Take a look at Squid. This is the proxy software you're going to have to setup if you really want a "proxy" server.
    http://www.squid-cache.org/


    If you want the box to be a router (which is what it sounds like), you need to enable IP forwarding, configure routes, setup DHCP (if needed), configure a firewall, etc.

    You can also save yourself a lot of work and simply go to best buy and grab a $45 Linksys router. It sounds like you don't have the experience needed to properly manage a linux box and more than likely you'll end up in trouble before long.
