Hmm.  Fun!

I hear taking db backups is the latest cool-kids thing!

FTP access gets them access to your db name and db login credentials.  

The question begs - how did they create a new FTP user?  Security vulnerability on the hosting server, or weak login credentials on your end?

Haven't Googled it, but if the wp_users table was deliberately deleted, that might suggest hacker d00d wanted to keep you out, as they've probably modified the code in one or more of your pages to inject spam and/or malware links.

Scan your site with Sucuri:
https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/

 
Thanks! I was able to eventually go back far enough to restore most users. It just took a day of googling before I even knew what a wp_users table was. I kept restoring from a backup that wasn't old enough.
 
The site scan comes back clean except for its admonition to boost security. Since this is a church's site, I might get them to spring for that.
 
So I'm going to stick with my vague hunch that a bot or Vietnamese kid got in, deleted users as a matter of habit, and looked around for useful data/emails/CC info, found none, then left.
 
Logins were probably very weak; 10 years old, before I started using LastPass...

What's the most likely reason a wp_users table would go missing? Makes it really hard to log in
 
Would you draw a connection between that, and the fact that in my cPanel, I saw an unknown user with FTP access? The username wasn't a word, just a random spam-looking string like jeffy21zzh. 
 
I deleted that user, then thought maybe I could have searched logs to see what they'd done, but I can't remember the username so hey.

Is your router supplied by your ISP?  I'm betting it just means broadcast SSID is off, but the band is still on and transmitting/receiving. Try connecting with something else (like a phone tablet other computer), that either hasn't connected or you have deleted the access point info (usually called 'forget this access point' in the settings in a phone).  Then when you do a connect you won't see it, but you can manually add the ID/password. If it connects, it's still on.

 
Yes, I lease it from them. That works. So apparently, the broadcasting of the SSID - not the network connection - is what was interfering with the bluetooth receiver.

there is a difference between turned off and not broadcasting SSID.   If the laptop knew the SSID/password from previous logons it can still connect even without the SSID broadcast.

Ah yes. I was just reading up on that...b/g/n. And it doesn't look like it's as simple as getting a dual card.
