    Check this one out:

    OS/Software is free as in beer and speech, and it will run on older hardware.

      Could always look at a SonicWALL TZ appliance as well.

      Depends on the budget though.

          Could take a look at Untangle.

          As suggested, a Linux machine could be used to run a suitable firewall and Squid to proxy.

              ???? No one's questioning if they should use a firewall, but WHICH one.
