You will need to reset your modem/router to its default settings, log in using the default admin credentials, and change ALL passwords to something other than what you had been using previously. On the modem/routers I've ever used at home, there is a hardware reset button that needs the use of a pin to start the reset process.

If you've got WiFi enabled on your router, you will need to use stronger security than WEP, which is easily broken. You might also want to restrict access to devices you trust using some form of MAC access control. How to do this will depend on which make/model modem/router you arie using.
