There isn't one, your phone doesn't have a modem configuration page and if you are using it with USB tethering then there is no way a hacker can 'hack' that.

You don't have a router, you have a phone.

Most people do not have remote administration enabled on their router so having the default username and password doesn't matter that much. It's usually a security flaw that is exploited to gain access to the router from the internet, on the internal LAN most people have a wireless password that keeps people out.

Make sure you have a firewall enabled on your computer.
