Please refer to the attached screenshot
My laptop dhcp request is failing in attached network. I have DHCP service enabled on ServerPT and disabled on Wireless Router. I want wireless router only to act as Access Point and I want laptop to get IP address from ServerPT. ServerPT is not directly connected to laptop but via Wireless Router

Unfortunatly this is not possible in PT and perphaps in relal live. It is not likely  u can do that with real devices.  Wireless home Router is your dhcp and nat services for all its direclty connectrd PCs. 

You can just replace wireless home router with just AP.

To me, your setup looks valid. I had a setup like that years ago in the early stages of my home network development. If a wireless router is put into the AP mode, it behaves like a regular AP. Assuming that you have a single subnet network, the whole thing is kind of plug-and-play. The only difficult part may be installing and configuring a new DHCP server.
