Modum question

Why would WPS button have been blinking red on my modum last night ? Nothing seemed to be affected and it eventually stopped. Just curious.

Could be that someone is trying to connect to your modem.
Edit to add:
Disable WPS, Make sure wpa2 security is setup correctly, as my suspicion is someone is trying to get in.

more likely someone accidentally bumped the wps button on the modem and triggered the connection function. Nothing to worry about.

It wasn't until this happened that I bothered to find out what WPS meant and i thought along the same lines. When it started flashing red I pushed it ,it then flashed orange before turning red again then stopped.

Yeah leave it off mate.
It's really only there for easy Wi Fi connection setup for devices but it has a security flaw that hackers can exploit.
Best to setup devices correctly than using WPS
