My current network configuration includes multiple computers in addition to a server that are all currently connected to a router. Is there anything in addition to setting up a Domain Controller that requires one to configure a router so that a Windows Domain will operate successfully or is the router independent of the situation?

If configuration is necessary, how would one go about doing so?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

I'm sorry but your question doesn't make any sense. Could you expand on your question as well as explain how you think domains and routers are related to each other? – joeqwerty Nov 30 '12 at 1:34
@joeqwerty Clarified question with specific items. Does this help? – Shaz Nov 30 '12 at 2:00
Do you mean that you want to host a web-facing Internet domain or that you want to create an active directory domain? They're two totally unrelated things. – MDMarra Nov 30 '12 at 2:01
@MDMarra Edited that in just before your comment. Tags might help in answering as well. – Shaz Nov 30 '12 at 2:02
I read your edit. It doesn't address my question. The tags say active directory, but your question doesn't make any sense in an AD context. – MDMarra Nov 30 '12 at 2:04

This technet wiki has a step-by-step guide for creating an AD domain using Windows Server 2012.

Your router configuration has nothing to do with this.
