So, I`ve hit on the bright idea of using the BB2 as a wireless access point in conjunction with my TP-Link router. I`ve read a couple of the posts on here about using the BB2 but the instructions aren`t overly clear.
If anyone has the definitive guide for setting up and using the BB2 as a wireless access point, I`d be most grateful.

Just search Google and read the threads on the topic mainly by @XRaySpeX

That instruction appears to missing a step, namely, if you switch it over to Ethernet, are you then selecting, Bridging, Routing or what?

Thanks for the tips - it actually seems to be happiest in Bridging mode, rather than Routing - which I found out based a different post from your good self.
Now using the TP as a modem/switch with all wireless traffic going through the BB2.
