My cousin has internet at home and he did agree to give me a proxy for browsing internet. He can use a proxy server program (like CCProxy or AnalogX) on his Windows PC but I wonder if there is any device that can connect to the router using Ethernet cable and to provide me a proxy. It should be a small device and cheap and it should use little electricity, just like a router or a switching hub.

Is there any such product available to buy from providers like D-Link or Netgear, is anyone producing such a device?

    Depending on your Router, or if you can can get a spare/second hand... you might be able to reflash it with OpenWrt or similar, which has several Proxy server options (Privoxy being one). Check their website OpenWrt.org for compatible hardware.

Have you looked into using a Raspberry PI? They are small, cheap and generally low on power consumption so that might meet your needs. I have not tried this but it looks like someone has made a tutorial on setting one up.
