stands for an IP address which some router manufacturers use as a router default address.

In most of the cases, this IP address – – is used by private home network computers.

This IP address belong to class C IP addresses, meaning it falls into the range that starts with and goes through

Some of the frequently used private IP addresses belonging to this range are and (Those two mentioned IP addresses are perhaps more frequently used than 192.168.l.2.)

It is  the default IP address for home broadband routers and access points are usually sold in some models other than American.

Instead  , you must use the router’s public IP address .

if you make and enter IP address , you will access the full electronic network as authoritative.

The software for the router to offer wired and wireless device features and options, you can make the necessary repairs and, thanks to the required settings. can be a Gateway or an IP address.

This is something that can confuse some users.

So if you want to find out whether it is an IP or a Gateway, just find Command, then type ipconfig /all , and you will be able to see all of it: IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DHCP server. Just see where is and that’s it.

How Private IP Addresses Work

There is no special meaning or value to individual private IP addresses — these are simply designated as “private” by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), the global organization that manages IP addresses.

A private IP address is used on a private network only, and cannot be accessed from the internet, but only by devices on the private network itself.

This is why modems and routers can operate easily using the same, default, private IP address.

To access a router from the internet, you must use the router’s public IP address.

The range of addresses reserved by IANA for use on private networks is in the range of 10.0.x.x, 172.16.x.x and 192.168.x.x.


Why is So Common?

Manufacturers of routers and access points must use an IP address within the private range.

Early on, mainstream broadband router manufacturers like Linksys and Netgear chose the 192.168.1.x as their default.

Although this private range technically begins at ,

most people think of a number sequence as starting from one rather than from zero, making the most logical choice for the beginning of a home network address range.

With the router assigned this first address, it then assigns addresses to each device on its network. The IP thus became the most common initial assignment.

A networked device does not gain improved performance or better security from its IP address, whether it is, or any other private address
 IP Address

One of the main features of private IP addresses is that they can not make your computer recognizable outside your home or office network (or on the Internet).

That fact brought up an issue on their accessibility and question about their good and bad sides.

But if taken to consideration all the threats coming from the Internet, it turned out that the private IP addresses are pretty useful stuff in this point.

Private IP address means that the IP address is used in private networking (home or office for example) and outside the Internet (this is where you should make a distinction: home networks may be connected to the Internet, but that doesn’t make them the parts of the Internet).

 IP addresses can be static and dynamic.

 Static IP address (also called fixed IP address) is the same every time you turn on your computer.


 Dynamic IP address is automatically assigned on broadband networks by DHCP servers.

Regarding the Internet sessions, dynamic IP addresses are temporary.


How do I go to the address of


When connecting to the Internet, the router serves as a gateway. Speaking of router, its major functions are transferring information and making sure where the information actually goes in the end.

It defines a path (a route) through which the data will be transferred.

It is important that data end up just in the place where it is needed, not in wrong destinations.

Router joins different networks, passes the information to one another and in the same time prevents data from unnecessary spill over and going around through more networks than it is needed – that would be – something like preventing information from flowing into all directions without control.

The name itself tells about its function of making a route for the data. Logically, to do that, it must be located where the networks meet.
