Thank you for your response. Can you verify that I understand this correctly?

I will refer to the snort box as snortbox. snortbox will contain the 

-two network cards

The network will be set out as follows:

Internet --> Modem --> snortbox --> router --> local network

I would then sniff all trafic outside the router allowing me to abtain all 
traffic that I need to.

Is this correct?

P.S. Why do I need to run squid?
