This must be a bridge issue, I don`t see any other explanation. We have VLANs, and just now, I made a test to be sure not to give you wrong type of help :) I set up a new simple queue on VLAN interface, called ABC, Look at the following screenshot from my winbox: http://jager.on.panonnet.net/!queue....

I will be happy to help :) My knowledge is not very high, but maybe you will find something useful at all.

At first, tell me where is connected the ethernet that is coming out from your Mtik (the one with 3WLANs) ?
Directly to a LAN on your BSD gateway with crossover cable, or into some switch?

Yes, it IS possible using 802.1Q ethernet card in your main router which must know to work with VLANs. Intel chipset ethernets are fine. So, you set your WLAN1 with (for example) VLAN ID:10 , WLAN2`s ID to 20, and WLAN3`s ID to 30. (all 3 on on Ethernet1) After that, you have to configure VLANs with...

If you are implementiong PPPoE connections, try to lower the MTU size on clients side. (Or, set it to lower value on PPPoE server). Depending of the quality of your wifi client`s connection, sometimes it is OK to lower the MTU to 800 or something like that. This worked for me.

If you use parent proxy, it is not necessary to redirect incoming traffic to your MT to external proxy, this is automatically handled by webproxy in your MT.
So, turn that NAT off :)
If I understanded well, you are doing NAT of all traffic on port 80 in addition to MTs webproxy
