the 3 computers that work have ips that are simler like
192.168.2.13
192.168.2.15

If you take that computer out of the DMZ and assign it a local static IP like 192.168.2.10 and forward port 80 in your router to that IP, then your webserver will still work and it should resolve the sharing issue. Let alone make your computer more safe since it's not wide open to the public.

If you don't want to take it out of the DMZ, you should be able to assign the NIC an additional IP address and make that IP similar to your other computers on the LAN and that should resolve the issue as well.
