Hi
I have suffered this due to lightning strike on the line some miles away from the modem. Even if local cables are underground and a transient suppressor is fitted, some of the line can emerge over ground at some point, and lightning can be real sneaky and bypass a transient suppressor, particularly a cheapi one.
Alternatively, you might have suffered just a random component failure.
