here is something not correct.
192.168.1.1/30 is no network for 4 hosts.
the network is 192.168.1.0/30
192.168.1.0 is the net
192.168.1.1 is the first host
192.168.1.2 is the second host
192.168.1.3 is broadcast
one of the hosts should be the gateway at the ISP, you have only one

The internal subnet of the DMZ has to be in another range than the
external subnet, e.g. 192.168.2.x.
