Lynn's dreams of causing a minor upset were ended by Nuneaton's Ashley Chambers whose hat-trick ended Lynn's cup hopes for another season.
Lynn made one change to the starting line-up to that which lost at Royston with Sam Gaughran being preferred to Tom Ward.
The first chance fell to the home side, Chambers heading over Billy Daniels' teasing cross.
Lynn's first effort came from Ryan Hawkins on the quarter hour, his low strike forcing 'keeper Dean Lyness to concede a corner with his legs.
Then on 21 minutes Chambers managed to hold off the attentions of Gaughran only to see his low shot saved by the legs of Alex Street.
Craig Parker had a curling shot for Lynn on 28 minutes but it lacked sufficient pace to trouble the home keeper.
The best chance of the first half fell to Michael Gash on 35 minutes, his effort from distance being tipped over Lyness.
Straight after the restart Chambers was again a threat forcing Street into another save with his legs but
Nuneaten took the lead on 57 minutes when a free-kick from Brad Gascoigne found the head of Ashley Chambers. The Boro nearly doubled their lead minutes later when a poor backpass from Gaughran was seized up by Daniel Nti but he fired wide with only Street to beat.
The home side were dominating and it was no surprise when they doubled their lead on 69 minutes.
