change user name and password for router gateway?

Hi, am I right in thinking that if I don't change my username and password for my router gateway from the standard "admin" and "admin", anyone could in theory log onto my router and change my settings? But how can I change it? All I can find is info about changing the name of the network and my wireless password (which I have already done). Help please!

to be able to change your settings they would allready have to be connected to your network via cable or wireless 

 

ghe option however should be under something like maintainece . account
