is a private IP address that can be assigned to any local network device. It can also be assigned as the default IP address for some router models. This address can be manually assigned to devices on the internal network configured to use this address range such as laptop, smart TV, phone, desktop, tablet, Chromecast. , etc., and the default address for routers , is the IP address that is integrated for the device when manufacturing.

Note: and addresses are easily confused with each other. The home network uses 192.168.1.x address (like rather than 192.168.100.x address.

How Connecting with outer

Administrators can log into a router with this IP address by accessing it as the URL. In the web browser, enter the following address:

Enter the address into the web browser

After accessing the above address, the browser will prompt the user to enter the admin username and password.

Enter admin username and password

The administrator can easily change the router's IP address from a default number or other customized number to Some people may choose to change this address with a more memorable address to log into the router.

Note: Most routers do not use the address as the default IP address, instead use the address ,, or


Set the address to as the IP address for the client

Administrators can choose to assign addresses to any device on a local network, not just the router. This can be done automatically via DHCP or manually to create a static IP address .

To use DHCP, the router must be configured to have address within the pool of the addresses it allocates. If a router starts its DHCP range with address, tens of thousands of addresses in the range with lower numbers like are not used. Administrators often specify as the first address in the DHCP range so that not only is used, but also addresses after it such as,, etc. are also used. 

By assigning a static IP address manually, the network mask of the router must be set up correctly to support the IP address.

More information about is a private IPv4 address, which means you cannot connect to a client device or router from outside the home network as with a public IP address.

Its use is only related to the local area network (LAN) . When using this address, performance or security is no different from using other private network addresses.

Only assign IP address to a device. The administrator should not assign this address manually when it belongs to the router's DHCP address range, otherwise an IP address conflict will occur because the router can automatically assign the address to a device though another device used it as a static address.
