What do I need to do on the 2wire router settings-wise if I am setting a NetGear R6250 as a Wireless Access Point behind it?
and yes I disabled the Wireless networks on the 2wire already and enabled the NetGear as an AP.
Do I change anything on the 2wire Firewall? Do I create a custom DMZ rule to allow all R6250 traffic through, or is that unnecessary.

If ALL... you want is a wireless access point, you may just be able to plug a cable from Netgear's Lan to 2Wire's LAN; turn off Netgear's ability to hand OUT addresses via DHCP. See - message 10 here
"If your only goal for the WRT (router) was to provide a better wireless security, the simpler thing to have done was to connect one of its LAN port to a LAN port of the 2WIRE, and turn off its DHCP feature instead of setting it up as a router behind the RG. In this way it acts as an Wireless Access Point/Switch, but not as a router."
