Hello bebabeba!
Are you still having trouble with pagination? If so, I could get it working today. I'm getting my Query results from an external database as well; I got some help from the IRC and I did it today.
I created two functions, one that returns my whole data and other that returns just the range of data a want in every page. My first function is as follow:

Public function GetSelectedAvailable(){
global $product;
global $SQL_start;
global $Length;

if (isset($product)) $selectedprd = $product;
if (!isset($product)) $selectedprd = Session::get('product');
if(!isset($_GET['start']) || !is_numeric($_GET['start']) || (int)$_GET['start'] < 1) $_GET['start'] = 0;
$SQL_start = (int)$_GET['start'];

$db = $this->connect();

$sql="SELECT `AvailabilityMaster`.`Desc`, `Stylecodes`.`Style`, `AvailabilityRaw`.`Qty`, `AvailabilityRaw`.`Price`
FROM (`AvailabilityRaw`
LEFT JOIN AvailabilityMaster
ON AvailabilityRaw.IDcode = AvailabilityMaster.IDcode)
LEFT JOIN Stylecodes
ON AvailabilityMaster.StyleCode = Stylecodes.code
WHERE `AvailabilityRaw`.`product` ='".$selectedprd."'";

$query = $db->query($sql);

$result = new DataObjectSet();
foreach($query as $row) {
$result->push(new ArrayData($row));

$Length = 10;
//Set Page Limits
return $result;

I declared two global variables ($SQL_start and $Length) that I'm using for SetPageLimits, and I will use them also in my function that will return the range of items to display in each page. This function is the next one:

Public function GetSelectedRange(){
global $SQL_start;
global $Length;
$result = New DataObjectSet();
$result = $this->GetSelectedAvailable();
$result = $result->getRange($SQL_start,$Length);
return $result;

In this function I just declared a new DataObjectSet, and then passed the result from the function that returns everything and then I filter it using $result->getRange(). And passing the values that are stored in the global variables.

I hope this will help.
