Trying to get clarification. I gave 2 routers. Router 1 behind the internet. Router 2 behind router 1. Web server sits behind router 2.

Currently I port forward 80 from router 1 to 2.. and from 2 to web server.

I think I should configure dmz in router 1 with router 2 and them do one forward.

But how will incoming 80 packet know to go dmz?

Two routers are probably unnecessary, but you can do this if, as you suggest, router 2 is in the DMZ of the router1.  In fact I do this on my home network because router 1 is furnished by and required by the ISP who also provides telephone and television.  But I want the added security of a true firewall with spam and virus protection from router 2.  So router two is in the DMZ of router1.

All traffic will pass through the DMZ of router1 to router 2.  It is a really an open channel with no port forwarding required.d

You must have all the computers on the same router if they are to communicate with each other.  My router2 has only ONE LAN port which connects to a 24 port switch.  All the computers connect to the switch.
