Something trying hack my router or what is it?

Hello, if i want login to my router, login page says exceeded maximum attempts. But i didn't tried login! There is no way someone hack my wifi because i have unbreakable password. Also Avast wifi inspector didn't show any unknown device. So what is it? If i restart my router this message disappear but after some time is back. Thank you.

If it's Wi-Fi then someone could be logged in or if you have it set to allow access via the net someone could be trying. The other option is there is malware on a local PC trying to do DNS poisioning

Yes, that is what Avast does here when checking the router security. I normally do not allow the desktop Avast to do that, I only use the Android phone Avast to scan the WiFi, as I don't manage the router from the phone and don't care if it's blocked.
