Tough to say without some additional calrification of "refuses to connect" and what that means, but..

Be aware that the 192.168.1.1:8080 address is the address of the administrative utility; it is a separate user name and password not associated with the WiFi password. So if it's refusing to connect because of username and password - ensure your using the admin account.

May have to do a hard reset on the modem.
