Has nothing to do with squid, probably. Unless you put two NIC's into your squid server, and set it between your DSL modem and your router, anyone can bypass it. The DHCP address they get sets the default router and options to go to the router, not through the squid box.
Go onto the clients, and set the proxy server settings to point to your squid server. But again, unless you filter everything through it, it's pointless. You don't say how your internal network is set up, what OS your clients run, or the configs on your squid system...
