Looks like Airstation is WLAN router - I would put it infront of the
firewall and DMZ to the firewall

something like this

[intranet] <---> eth1 [firewall] eth0 <----> [extranet]
                                  ^--(DMZ)-> [AirStation/WLAN]

or you can turn off the firewall there completely 

AT home I have a router with WLAN from the Telco and my setup looks like

[intranet] <---> [firewall] <-- (DMZ) --> [Router + WLAN] <---> WAN
                                                  ^-----------> WLAN

The DNS problem looks like you have to (again) work on the AirStation.

If you can not manage the AirStation - throw that crap away.
