    Squid Proxy Server Question(s)

    Good afternoon,

    I installed Squid3 and dansguardian in order to limit access to, shall we say, less desirable websites. Everything works well except for one small glitch. Whenever I turn my computer on, Ubuntu Lucid boots up, Squid and dansguardian start up just fine, then the computer connects to the wireless network. When I start a browser (Firefox), it can't access any sites outside of the local network unless I fire up a terminal and restart Squid.

    Question 1: why is this happening? I'm assuming that if the wireless connection started before Squid then everything would be fine.

    Question 2: what can I do to make it such that my computer and proxy connect to the wireless router/internet without me having to restart squid?

    Thanks in advance...cheers!
    The one serious conviction that a man should have is that nothing is to be taken too seriously.
    Where facts are few, experts are many.

    If you feel so then stop the squid using
    chkconfing squid off
    then your wireless network might get started when the system boots. Now add a entry to start the squid in
