Some questions:

1. How is your network currently configured: static IPs, dhcp, if
dhcp, is the dlink router your dhcp server?
2. What is the goal of the proxy server?: access control
(restrictions, authentication), cache, other.
3. Who provides the DNS service? is the dlink router? is another server?
4. How is the wireless part of the router being used? office
computers, some laptops, some of the "boss's" gadgets, other.

Depending on these answers, there are one or more options for you.
