Popup *New Internet Connection Detected* Hacked??

Hi people,

Yesterday I got this pop up from Mcafee *New Internet Connection Detected*   Your PC is connected to a new network. Assign either to the public. Home or Work.

About this connection:

Gateway -

Mask -

I know there shouldnt be a internet detected as im already on my wireless.  Have I been hacked into? I have not clicked on anything yet.

Hopefully someone can explain why Ive got this pop up and what I should do?

Hi there,

It should be your default Internet providers IP address that is detected , select Home and it should go away .
