Unplug the router from everything. Use the re-set button:

As described above, then set the router up as new.
i tryed that but it doesnt work. theres 1 button that said off/on that i tryed pushing and holding down for 15 seconds but it didnt do anything and didnt say anything about setting up a new internet. the ipadress to the router was the same and still couldnt getinto the router settings,,,, also there is a button that is lables Reset that i pushed and that did nothing aswell. all it did was the internet went off for like 1 min and then went back on.

You must disconnect the router from power / computers everything...It should not be on when you hold down the re-set button.

Some routers need that re-set button held in for up to a minute. Check zyxels site for your specific model. It will re-set

This is for a different model. For you router: to reset, quoting the manual:
1. Make sure the POWER LED is on (not blinking).
2. To set the device back to the factory default settings, press the RESET button for ten seconds or until the POWER LED begins to blink and then release it. When the POWER LED begins to blink, the defaults have been restored and the device restarts.
Then conntect to your router via an ethernet cable, ip of the router is now 192.168.1.1 and password 1234.
If that does not work, make sure your ethernet connection is set to get the IP Address via DHCP.
