New Linksys E2500 router giving me trouble
I just bought a new Linksys E2500-N router to replace my old WRT54GS one since my new computer wouldn't quite work right with it. I have the network set up (it is called "Campbell") and this computer connects to the internet. However, none of my other computers can connect to the network and it also lists the network as "Campbell 2" instead. I managed to connect to "Campbell-guest" and connect to the internet from there.

I just figured I would just go with it since it worked and I don't use my network for connecting to other computers anyway, but then I went to connect my Xbox 360 to the internet and it doesn't connect to the network "Campbell" and when connected to "Campbell-guest" it won't connect to the internet. I've reset the router and modem several times and nothing works. I've tried to disable the password on the network to see if that was trouble and all that did was make it impossible for to do anything because of all the "Your network is unprotected and at risk" messages popping up.

The security settings are WPA2 security and the other computer and Xbox 360 are connected wirelessly while this desktop is connected with an ethernet cable.

Managed to fix the issue with the Xbox but now the computer that was connected as a guest can no longer connect to the network

Press and hold the rest button on the router for 30+ seconds.

Release and wait for all the appropriate LED's to light up.

Once you've done this, look for available wireless networks on your computer.

What comes up?

What comes up?
"Campbell 2" and "Campbell-guest"

Neither of those two will let me connect to them. I right clicked on the properties of the networks to make sure that the password is right and that the security type is WPA2-Personal on both the computer that can't connect and the computer that is directly connected to the router.

Does the directly connected (Ethernet cable) computer have internet access?

Launch your web browser and type 192.168.1.1 into the URL box at the top. Hit Enter.

Type admin as both the username and password in the popup.

Then you should be able to configure your wireless settings from there. (Only broadcast 1 signal, remove or change the password, whatever you want).
