What is an IP address like 192.168.10.1?
As mentioned earlier, 192.168.10.1 is your router’s private IP address. It’s your router’s IP address that computer devices on your network use to connect to it. Your router isn’t the only one that uses 192.168.10.1. Router manufacturers use a set of the same IP addresses on their routers. Your router’s IP address does not have to be unique, as the only person using the IP address is you, the owner of the network.
As mentioned above, your router is not the only device that has an IP address. Every computer device on the network also has one. Typically this is some derivation of 192.168.10.1, with the last number changing depending on how many devices you have connected to the network. Even non-computer devices, such as printers or storage devices, have an IP address to help them connect to the router.
Not just any number can be an IP address. There is a set of numbers reserved for private IP address use, which has been decided by the IANA or the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority. The other numbers that are not part of these sets can be used as public IP addresses, with more information below. Numbers reserved for private IP addresses 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
Although router manufacturers only use a few of these numbers for their routers, there are about 18 million different combinations of private IP addresses.
Your public IP address
An example of a private IP address is 192.168.10.1, which you use to access the router’s administration page. It is also used by computer devices on the network as a point to send data requests. However, as mentioned above, a private IP address is not the only IP address your router has.
Your Internet service provider also assigns a public IP address to the router. Unlike your private IP, you don’t have much control over your public IP address. The ISP uses the public IP address to forward information requested when you visit a website. This means that every website you visit can see your public IP address. Your router’s public IP collects the requested information and delivers it to the private IP, which distributes it to the computer on the network that made the request.
That way, people outside your network can see your public IP address, but that’s not the only difference. Your ISP can change your public IP address as needed. Two devices do not have the same two public IP addresses and there are not enough IP addresses for all computer devices that use the Internet. An ISP has a selection of public IP addresses for its customers to use, so whenever a router disconnects from the Internet, the public IP address is reassigned.
Can’t connect to your router?
Stop worrying, there is some logical explanation or reason behind this. Below are some of the most common reasons why you have restricted access.
Invalid IP Address
IP addresses are not very easy to enter. If you enter any incorrect digits or any unwanted characters, it will take you to a different page or it will not load. To avoid this error, just copy and paste the IP address into the address bar. Only this can guarantee that you have entered the correct IP address.
missing Ethernet cable
Most routers need some physical connection before gaining access to the 192.168.10.1 admin panel. Ethernet cables are the most common form of physical connection used to gain access to the router’s IP address. It’s a simple process to connect your computer to the router and takes just a few seconds.
If you still cannot connect to http://192.168.10.1, it is possible that your router is not working as it should. These complex devices can cause complications if any component is not in place. To rule out this possibility, contact the router manufacturer. But be aware of this, not all manufacturers use the IP address 192 168 10.1.
