The Uplink Port is different to a WAN Port and is autosensing between a Crossover and Straight Connection so the Router needs to be connected to the Uplink Port of the WiFi Access Point.

Question 2

Without knowing the Make & Model of the Router at a guess I would say that the setup of that Device is set to separate the Wired and Wireless Networks so that the wired DCHP from the server is not being transfered tot he Wireless LAN.

You need to bridge and the Wireless and Wired LANs in the Routers Setup. But that's just my best guess without knowing what it is you are using.
