Connect remote PCs to server through a router

Specs: Windows 7
I'm relatively competent with adding new hardware to an existing network but I am not sure how to do something a little more complicated. I have a small business server that hosts 6 computers via wired network. We run a cable from the main office across the lot to the shop where it connects to a wireless enabled router. The router is wired to two more PCs and hosts 1 laptop wirelessly. I would like to two PCs to be able to connect to the server and access all the common files stored in the server drive - how do I get the PCs to see the server and not just the router/each other? I don't need the laptop to connect to the server, but we do need to wireless router to connect the laptop to the internet.

There are two ways to connect the downstream router:
1) LAN port (upstream) to LAN port (downstream)
2) LAN port (upstream) to WAN port (downstream)

How is the router in the shop connected to the router in your main building?

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
