I was intending to use the BB2 as a modem and plug my linksys router into it as it has a good parental control suite and better range than the BB2. However, on plugging the linksys into the red wan port I cannot get any throughput to the router and subsequently no internet access.
I am am really no expert with networks, previously with a BT home hub I just turned off the wifi , plugged the router in and everything worked.
Tearing my hair out over this as the instructions are sparse, technical support (phone and Facebook) were useless/clueless (they sent out a second bb2 box, even though I told them it wasn't the hardware that was faulty)
any my assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Try disabling NAT & DHCP on the BB2 & in its Basic Settings, set Protocol = Bridging.

There isn't 1. Just disable NAT & DHCP. That's effectively bridging.
