I was at my mom's place yesterday and internet was working fine, but then it suddenly stopped working.
I clicked on troubleshoot, and it stated that:
Problems found
The default gateway is not available


What does this mean?


After some minutes all went back to normal. Is someone trying to hack me?

That generally means your LAN (as in the Modem-Router) has gone offline temporarily, which does happen.


It is highly unlikely that this was anything other than a typical (which doesn't mean frequent) "burp."

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.  Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
