Private IP Address

This article is about private IP addresses. Before you know the private IP address, you need to know about the public IP address, and if you are reading this, you should know some information about the public IP address. Luckily for you, this is quite easy to explain.

What is a Private IP address?

The wireless router sets its local address to the default special IP address. It is usually the same as the other models of the manufacturer, and can be seen in the manufacturer’s documentation.

The following list is the default private IP address of popular wireless routers:
Linksys and TP-link routers use 192.168.1.1
D-Link and NETGEAR routers are set to 192.168.0.1
Cisco routers use either 192.168.10.2, 192.168.1.254 or 192.168.1.1
Belkin and SMC routers often use 192.168.2.1

Your private address is just for your router, your network and you. The private address ranges in a network don’t have to be synchronized with the rest of the world and Internet.

In fact, the range of dedicated addresses can be used by multiple addresses. Network administrators using these private addresses have more space for subnet partitioning and more allocation addresses.

Private IP address provides an operation for home network. These addresses can be used by private network. Even if your neighbor address used exactly the same, it will not lead to problems, because this is his or her network, not yours.
