I think you can configure / tell the system about external internet connection via "Main" --> "Control" ---> "External Connection" .

well.. you can try a paid one :SSG 2000: .. I have not used it but only heard about its feature. btw. my ISP  is also using same.

Well squid is best in linux, it can do all you want but there is little learning curve.
Restricting bandwidth is also possible with squid, you can ask gauravbajaj about this, he has already done that.

Btw. . also look out for "SafeSquid" ..
