any of this we talk about has nothing to do with squid

bw control, connection limiting etc you should handle with the firewall

let squid do what it does well, cache and proxy

you could consider a different setup, a Unix box with firewall on your
internet connection and as your gateway, squid as TPROXY or transparent
proxy if you need NAT, all on the same box

if you use Linux you should look for pf firewall, if you use FreeBSD you
should use ipfw firewall and read the specific documentations, if this
all is new for you,  you might find it easier to use FreeBSD since all
setups are straight forward, linux and also pf is a little bit more
as example, setting nat on IPFW can be down with three lines of code, I
believe pf needs at least 6 to work

but before you dig deeper you might think about a new design of your
concept of Internet access

I do not understand this question, is this squids connect keyword? If,
nothing to do ...

all I was talking about is on firewall layer, before squid

DL-accel use to fire lots of UDP packets to find a peer, this packages
can saturate small links easily if you do not limit them

you limit the max udp connections as also the max tcp connections, what
helps you getting even with small bandwidth "reasonable" speed as far as
128kbit/s can be reasonable

you can run a simple squid setup
and you run a simple firewall setup

both on one machine
