When a computer is connected to a router by LAN cable.

 

Why I still need internet access to open the router interface where I can change the wi-fi password … etc?

Don't confuse lan access with internet access.  You access the router via its assigned ip address.  In your case that would not be the internet gateway but a ip address assigned to the router for maintenance.

Could anti virus software block the access to router interface?

Yes specially if it includes firewall or some web filtering.

So would a IP conflict with another device that has that same IP. Make sure the ethernet is the only cable besides power that is connected to the router's LAN port when trying to access it's gateway IP. If you are unsure what IP the router uses to access it, check your IP address from Start > Run > CMD > IPconfig and look for your default gateway which should begin with a 192.168.x.x IP.
