192.168.100.1 is am IP address set as the default local address for a few models of home broadband routers
. It is a private IP address that can be assigned to any device on a local network configured to use this address range.
192.168.100.1 is one of the private IP Address from the pool of private IP Addresses assigned for accessing the networking equipments on private networks.
They are not unique across the globe and can be repeated in different networks at the same time.
Using 192.168.100.1 to Connect to a Router
Administrators can log into the console of a router set for 192.168.100.1 by pointing a Web browser to
This triggers the browser to prompt for the router’s administrative login information (username and password).
How to access your router at home
Administrators can easily change a home router’s addresses from some other default to 192.168.100.1 if they prefer to use this number.
Some people do that as they find it easier to remember than some other numbers, but otherwise it provides no particular benefit over other address choices.
DOES MY ROUTER USE 192.168.100.1 AS A DEFAULT IP ADDRESS?
Router default IP address can be any IP address from the reserved IP range.
Most common router addresses are for example 192.168.1.1, 192.168.0.1, 192.168.2.1, 192.168.1.254, 192.168.254.254,192.168.100.1 and so on.
It can be any IP from the private IP range, but manufacturers usually pick the first address in private IP space or any address that seems easy to remember, to be default address for their routers.
You can find out what is the default IP address of your new router on a couple of ways.
If you bought the new router, you can simply look on the labels bellow it, however if you got used wifi router or you changed your router default address you need to connect your router to your computer in order to find it.
HOW TO LOGIN INTO ROUTER CONTROL PANEL?
Router control panel is usually accessed by typing its default IP address (in our case 192.168.100.1 into the browser address bar.
Just open your favorite web browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer or Vivaldi) and type the IP you’we found in previous steps, then press enter.
After you done that, your router will ask for Username and Password of the administrator (which is you).
If the router is new, you will use default username and password, if the router is used and you or someone else changed password in the past you will need to reset router to factory settings and than login with the default username and password.
Default username and password are not the same for every wifi router.
Each manufacturer use slight variations of these and to find it you need to consult your device technical manual, or even easier way is to type into Google “ROUTER MODEL default username and password” (replace ROUTER MODEL with your actual router name and number).
Using 192.168.100.1 for Local Clients
An administrator can choose to assign 192.168.100.1 to a different device on the local network other than the router.
Assignment can be done either dynamically (via DHCP ) or manually.
To use DHCP, the router’s configuration must be set to include 192.168.100.1 in the range (pool) of addresses it allocates.
If a router starts its DHCP range aT 192.168.1.1 tens of thousands of addresses exist in the range with lower numbers, making it highly unlikely that 192.168.100.1 ever gets used.
Administrators more commonly assign 192.168.100.1 to be the first address in the DHCP range instead.
With manual addressing, calleD static IP address assignment, the router’s network mask must be set correctly in order to use this address.
How 192.168.100.1 Works
192.168.100.1 is a private IPv4 network address, meaning that you cannot connect to a router from outside the home network using this address.
It is for use by administrators within the local area network (LAN) only.
Routers or clients do not experience any difference in network performance or security from having this address compared to any other private network address.
Issues with 192.168.100.1
This address and 192.168.1.100 are easily confused with each other.
Home networks use 192.168.1.x addressing much more often and 192.168.100.x relatively rarely.
Only one device should be assigned 192.168.100.1.
Administrators should avoid manually assigning this address to any device when it belongs to a router’s DHCP address range.
Otherwise, IP address conflicts can result as the router can assign this address to a different device than the one already using it.
HOW TO CHANGE ROUTER IP DEFAULT ADDRESS?
To change the default IP address for your router, log into its control web panel. Look for section LAN. That is the section where settings for your local area network are stored.
Look for LAN Host configuration or something similar.
Insert the new IP you want to use (eg 192.168.100.1).
Go to DHCP Server configuration.
Enter the START IP ADDRESS (e.g. 192.168.100.2) and END IP ADDRESS (e.g. 192.168.100.100).
Save the settings.
Restart your router.
