Great help, thanks all.
Switched to AT&T to save a few bucks and guess I learned why/how they can do that after spending a day of my life reconfiguring the home network.
Anyway, just wanted to add or maybe emphasize a couple things that might be helpful, particularly to those using Cisco Linksys E2000 routers:
1. Yes, you DO hook it up through the physical INTERNET port on the back of the unit. There are nice pictures posted that show this in this thread, and while you might get internet to work with the RG plugged into ports 1-4 (I did), it really needs to be in INTERNET port for important reasons (Other pass-through capabilities).
2. On the E2000 In Advanced Routing make sure that NAT is switched ON, and Dynamic Routing is turned OFF.
Generally, when making all the changes it's helpful to make sure everything wireless is turned off. I had a wireless print server, a wireless security camera and some Blackberrys all getting assigned local IP addresses during setup which was annoying, as I focused on getting reliable Bridge AND most importantly, VPN to work properly through the bridge, which I did. Next on the list is Remote Desktop. Not working yet, but hopeful.
