Windows 7: Multiple Networks and unable to setup my router

Multiple Networks and unable to setup my router

I have a Zyxel NBG 418-N router. It was all setup'd and working well. A few days ago I unplugged my router and re-setup'd the connection in order to work with the wan cable directly plugged into the PC. Now I need it back and I have no idea how to do it. I watched alot of tutorials and still didn't manage to do anything. Today I looked a bit deeper and did something. I accesed that site which you can acces when you are offline, in order to setup the router, and changed from "maintenance" or something like that, from the default setting, which I don't remeber what exactly was, to "acces point". Basically what is going on now (I think so) is that I am connected somehow to the internet like if the router wasn't there, because it's connceting to the same network as it did before the router was plugged. I also had to acces the connection to the router, and from "properties", to set the IP adress to 192.168.1.254 and some other settings in that pannel (all from internet protocol settings), even though the IP I needed to log into the router setup site was 192.168.1.1 (I had no idea what I was doing, just did what I saw in the video). Anyway, after I did so, the network's name changed from "unknown connection" to "network 2" but I still cannot connect to it and the only network with internet acces will be "broadband connection". The problem here is that I THINK that I forgot the password that I chose for the wifi, because it is either wrong, either it won't connect (before I setup'd the router as an "Acces point", it connected but the wifi wasn't working, and before I manually chose the IP it would attemp to conncect but will fail and display "disconnected), and I can't acces the network page in order to try to reset the password because of some IP problems I think. It stopped working just after I set it as an "acces point". I will add some screenshots. I am sorry that I wasn't cursive at all, I really need help for this.

You have set default gateway to 192.168.1.2 it should be 192.168.1.1 that will stop you getting internet . If it doesn't work when you change it set it to obtain IP automatically then open a cmd prompt type

Ipconfig /all

I have some technical dificulties due to my parents being retarded so it will be really hard to work on this (I have no mouse)
What I have done: Changed the IP again, won't let me acces the site. Tried setting it back to auto mode, but still won't let me acces it. Also, after I changed it to auto mode, the network won't change it's name again to "Network 2" even if I manually change the IP again. I also did a system restore but for some reason it wont affect the network settings. I forgot to mention but idk if it is relevant tho, the "unidentified network/network 2" network will only appear AFTER I connect to "broadband connection". Until that, it's just not there. Also, the password is apparently not wrong, because if I try using any other password it just won't attemp connecting at all. If I use the good password tho, it will try connecting but fail at "Obtaining IP adress"

You have a PPP adapter which is getting an internet IP I assume from the modem remove that adapter that's what's stopping you getting out. You have a modem is that set to connect and give password etc or does the router do the login what ports are plugged in on the router

I was actually wrong. It actually starts as being connected to unidentified network/network 2, having no internet acces, and still gives me the option to connect to Broadband connection, which has acces. Both are listed as active connections.

Simple delete the PPP adapter that's the problem once you remove that network it should and you should be able to get to the router
