Content Filtering/Proxy Server/software firewall

How can a filter content for 15 - 20 users connecting wirelessly from various devices (Windows/Mac laptops, Iphone, iPad, Android).

I have Linksys E1000 router and a Windows 7 laptop.

I'm thinking that I need to set up the laptop as a proxy server.

How do I set up the proxy server?

What content filtering software or FW software should I use?

This set up is for a non-profit organization so I need to consider cost.

Please help.

E1000 can be converted into a more advanced router dd-wrt
You would need to build a proxy server such as squid with squidguard using most any older desktop will do. Linux/squid/squidguard fairly straight forward to setup.
You would the use the modified E1000 to redirect all port 80 requests to the proxy.  This way the setup will be transparent to the users.
