Question 2 router port forwarding

Ok well I just recently figured out a way to host a ftp server on my computer. Now in order for me to do this i need to open port 21. Now the way i use to have my internet set up i was behind just one router. The problem is that i just recently reconfigured my set up so now i am behind two different models of routers, the way i have it set up it goes phone line coming out of wall then modem then Ethernet cable going into my first router, then one of the cables coming out of that router goes into my second router then coming out of that router it goes to my computer. Now The way i had it done is that i would have the first router forward port 21 to the second router then the second router forward it to my computer. but for some reason i am still unable to access my ftp server via the web. I know it is working because i am able to access it via "ftp://[ip of my computer on the network]" So if anybody knows what i am doing wrong i would greatly appreciate some help.
