If someone has "hacked" your password, they would have changed it so you cannot access the device. The only recourse you have is to do a hard reset on the device to reset the username and password to the factory defaults. Routers have, usually in the back, an opening that you can insert a paper clip or toothpick and reset the device. You usually have to hold it in, with power applied, from 10-30 seconds, depending on the manufacturer. Unfortunately, this will reset ALL the settings of the router, requiring a complete setup process after the hard reset. This is probably a good idea, especially since the "hacker" probably changed some settings to his/her advantage, otherwise there would have been no need for the hack in the first place. After resetting, choose a longer and much harder to guess username/password. Best options include a mix of numbers/letters/symbols, both upper and lower case.

I can not log onto facebook

When it returns to the login page, what does it say as the URL? Depending on this your account may have been hacked and it's showing a fake login page or you forgot your password and need to do a password reset and have it e-mailed to you. If your account was hacked I would suggest changing your passwords on all of your accounts & notifying every company that your accounts have been hacked to avoid being held responsible for fraud or other evildoings

Im cant login to facebook

Possible that the user name and the password is wrong in which case you can log into the history and check for password or ask the administrator to send a reset password to your alternate address. If the site is hacked you can log on using a friends link and confirm. recently some sites were hacked and if so you can make a request to the administrator.

My character in crossfire not log in because na hack

If you can no longer log onto your account because it was hacked and the password was changed, you'll need to contact Crossfire support and have them manually reset your password or something similar.

If you can no longer log onto your account because you used hacks and got caught, you'll no longer be able to log into that account and will need to create a new one.
