Multiple subnets- DHCP

We currently have one 2008 DCHP server with one subnet (172.X.3.X). All VPN, wireless, and wired share same subnet.
I want to achieve the following break-up of traffic

wired 172.X.3.X
Wireless and VPN  172.X.4.X

I want both subnets to issue DHCP from one DHCP server

Not a problem. Configure the DHCP scope for 172.X.4.X just as you normally would. Configure the router on the 172.X.4.X network to forward DHCP requests to your DHCP server. The DHCP server will know which subnet the requests are for and will use the correct scope to hand out IP addresses. On Cisco routers, this is called ip helper-address.

If you are going to do this, I suggest putting VPN clients and wireless each onto their own subnet.

Can we do this with just one router routing all the traffic?

Sure, as long as your router has enough interfaces. The VPN pool is normally something that only exists off your VPN server, so it isn't actually connected to your router. The router would need need to route the traffic to the VPN server.
