Since a year I have a Sagemcom FAST3686 V1B, given to me by my telecom company here in France, SFR.

For a year i kept the default wifi password (wa2+wpa) and i could access fine.

Some weeks ago i could not access the router at the usual i reset the router and access was fine again, i changed immediately wifi password and router login.

Yesterday I reset again due to no router-access, afterwards it was fine. Today I am denied anew access to

(Ipconfig showed beforehand as the default domain/accesspoint/whatever and i am trying to access from the same computer and browser as yesterday)

Has someone changed the software on the router and have free access to it and the three pc's connected to it?
How can i safeguard the router?
Does the router have a firewall i can adjust next time i reset to access it?
If i enter the new wifi wpa2+wpa password on my phone, can the hackers see it as a phone is so easy to hack?

I know I someone have accessed my computer this last year. I found a video-call program running in the background sharing my screen to however was looking.

Thanks a bunch!
