I think there is a physical reset button somewhere on that modem/router.  If that exists and you press it, everything is returned to the way it left the factory, default password and all.

Hopefully you did not leave the router unconfigured/at defaults or it would be easy to take control over.

 

If this is the case set the router back to factory defaults so you can use the default user name and password found here

If you can't logon to your router you can not see who may be connected to it.  What your phone shows is simply other networks in your area not what is connected to the wifi of your router.

usually you need a straightened paperclip to push the indented button for the router reset.  Most will say reset next to the hole with the button for the reset

Your best modem/router guide will come from the manufacturer's web site; there might be other 3rd party sites.  Googling the exact name and model of your modem/router should give some good PDF or DOC manuals for that specific hardware.
