The 192.168.0.228 IP address is a local, private, or gateway IP address. 192.168.0.228 is the address of your router that computer devices connected to the network will use to send data requests over the Internet. Your router also has a public IP address. The public IP address is used by the ISP and any website you visit, to obtain the information from the website you visit, to your router, with your router sending this data, back to your computer screen, through the private IP address.
Finding Your IP Address
192.168.0.228 is a common private IP address, although it may not be yours. If 192.168.0.228 is not your IP address, you can search for your router model online, which should reveal your router’s default IP address. The IP address may also be listed in your router’s manual. If these methods don’t work, you can use your computer to find your IP address.
If your computer is running Microsoft Windows:
Click on the network icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.
With the menu open, select the Wi-Fi network you use for the internet.
Selecting the Wi-Fi network will present a variety of information. Among them will be IPv4, which will have a number chain next to it similar to 192.168.0.228. These numbers are your IP address.
If your computer is running on Mac OS X

If this is the case and you want to reset it to the default, you can perform a factory reset on the router, although this will reset everything else on the router.
What is an IP address like 192.168.0.228?
As mentioned above, 192.168.0.228 is a private IP address that your router uses to distinguish itself on the network and a delivery point for data requests from computer devices using the Wi-Fi network. 192.168.0.228 is not unique to the your router, as most router manufacturers use a selection of private IP addresses in their router ranges. With that said, a private IP address is not even exclusive to a particular brand. This is done in this way, as the only person who needs to know the private IP address is the owner of the router.
But how does the router know which computer device is sending data requests? Well, your router is not the only device on your network, with each computer connected to your Wi-Fi network, also having a private IP address, such as 192.168.0.228. The sequence of numbers that is your IP address helps each device to communicate with the other. And it’s not just devices with Internet access that have an IP address. Printers and storage devices also have an IP address, so the router and computer devices that use the network can connect to and use them. Typically, the IP addresses of other devices on the Wi-Fi network are deviations from the router’s IP address, with the last number being different.
At the time of writing, when people talk about IP addresses, they are referring to IPv4. IPv4 means Internet protocol version 4 and consists of four sets of numbers separated by a dot, although they are not any numbers. The IANA or Internet Assigned Numbers Authority has reserved certain numbers for private IP addresses, and the rest can be used for public IP addresses. These reserved numbers are:
- From 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255
- From 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255
- From 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255
These three ranges of numbers allow for about 18 million different private IP addresses. As stated, router manufacturers are generally limited to two or three.
Private vs. Public IP addresses
192.168.0.228 is a private IP address and directly related to your Wi-Fi network. It is the string of numbers that you use to access the router’s administration page. However, as mentioned briefly, your router also has another public IP address.
Your ISP will assign your public IP address and you do not have much control over it. Your public IP address can be any string of four numbers, not consisting of the numbers reserved for your private IP address. Your public IP address allows your router to connect and communicate with the Internet. Whenever you visit a website, it will see your public IP address and use it to send the requested information.
Another difference between your private and public IP addresses is that your public IP address is likely to change. As stated, each router in the world needs a different public IP address, so ISPs need to use dynamic IP addresses. The ISP distributes its available IP addresses according to use. After a user disconnects from the Internet, their public IP address is passed on to someone else. Otherwise, ISPs would not have enough addresses for all of their customers.
It is possible to have a public IP address that does not change and are called static IP addresses. These types of addresses are for websites or cloud servers, which need to be online permanently.
As the name suggests, a public IP address is public. It is for this reason that there is some concern for the safety of the user. The public IP address can reveal a user’s approximate location. However, in the right hands, a public IP address can provide more information than that. A hacker can use a public IP address to build a user’s profile.
A VPN service can give you some comfort if you are concerned about your security while you are online. A VPN service hides your public IP address from websites. Instead, a VPN provides you with a random address that can show you in a different country. Some routers come with an integrated VPN service.
Resetting the password to 192.168.0.228?
All you have to do is restart the modem. This can be done easily by clicking on the reset button on the back or bottom of your modem. If you hold down this small button for approximately 20 seconds (you may need to use a toothpick), the modem will be restored to its factory settings.
What you need to keep in mind is that when you reset the modem, you will lose your online connection. Therefore, it is best to ask the help of an expert in this regard. If you don’t have enough information, we recommend that you ask someone who has that kind of knowledge for help.
