Why would my router reset itself to factory default?

So everything on my home network is working fine, except this morning I can't get my Blu-Ray player, which has WiFi, to connect. When I start poking around, I find my SSID being broadcast, but there is no security at all. The login and password have also been set to "admin." I haven't been messing around with the router at all. What could cause it to reset in this way. Since I'm the OCD poster child, I have horrific visions of being hacked in horrible ways, but I'm pretty sure my neighbors couldn't defeat the WPA2 key that was set up and working perfectly when I first installed the thing about a week ago.
