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?

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?

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.

Thanks,

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."
