You can try policy based routing if DD-WRT supports that – see https://docs.diladele.com/tutorials/policy_based_routing_squid/index.html

Subject: [squid-users] Need help setting up DD-WRT router to use Squid as a transparent proxy

Hi all,

I'm trying to set up a transparent proxy on my network so that all devices are forced to use Squid/SquidGuard for network traffic, and can filter out undesirable destinations.

I have Squid/SquidGuard running on a Raspberry Pi 4, running the latest release of Raspian Buster. The route is a D-Link DIR-860L, flashed with the 01/14/20 build of DD-WRT. I tried using the instructions at DD-WRT. But, am running into problems.

Squid/SquidGuard works fine if I enter in a manual proxy in my Firefox browser. However, when I go to configure my router's settings I have problems. The error message that's coming up says that I'm passing an invalid URL, and the only thing that shows in the error message is the /. This is happening on ALL webpages I try and go to, not just the ones which SquidGuard is set to filter out.

Helpful hints or directions will be greatly appreciated!
