Generally, all of you will agree with my statement that router is the main part of internet. Rather, it is called as the backbone of internet. At the same time, it performs the function of connecting two or more networks. Furthermore, it helps in forwarding the data packets in between the networks. Although, router makes multiple network connections. However, it is to be ensured that they belong to different IP networks. To illustrate, the owners cable, or the DSL router. Moreover, the connection to the internet is through Internet Service Provider (ISP). Also, if multiple routers are interconnected, then, they exchange information. Now, you must be wondering how the exchange process happens. So, it is concerned with the destination address. Further, this is done through routing protocol.
To continue with, now is the time to look at IP address. Usually, the full form of IP address is Internet Protocol Address. Also, it is not new that all devices use the IP address to communicate. But, ensure that all IP addresses are unique. Furthermore, the IP addresses are isolated by using dots or full stops. Most importantly, note that there are only numbers included in IP address. So, there is no inclusion of any letter or alphabet. Commonly, by default, IP address of many routers is 192.168.10.1. Meanwhile, it is a private IPV4 gateway.
What is 192.168.10.1?
To start with, 192.168.10.1 is a private address. Thereafter, the definition is given by Internet Assigned Numbers Authority. Though, you’re allowed to use the IP address on an individual machine or on a local network. Further, you can also perform specific tasks. Although, 192.168.10.1 is not the only IP address. Therefore, there exists other IP addresses. Instead, you may also use 192.168.0.1.
Features of 192.168.10.1 Default IP Address
There exists some features of IP address. To understand it clearly, let’s look at the following points.
- Firstly, the users have to be from different networks. However, there can be the same IP address. Thereby, this feature acts as an advantage.
- Next, there is no need to get a separate DHCP servers. Further, to complete all the tasks, you don’t require additional stitches.
- Also, the information will face easy and smooth flow. Meanwhile, it plays the role of a highway.
How to Login in 192.168.10.1 Administration Panel?
Now, when we’ve covered every possible subheads of the topic, let’s now learn the login process. Though, you need to follow some steps. Also, these are given below.
Step 1: At starting, you need to open the web browser. Then, type http://192.168.10.1/

Step 3: Finally, you may check the login information from the standard list. At the same time, you can also reset the same.
Now, let’s learn how to find the IP address on different devices.
Step 1: Initially, click on start. Then, type cmd in the search box. Next, select command prompt.
Step 2: Now, a new window gets opened. Here, type ipconfig and hit enter.
Step 3: Finally, the display of IP address will be there.
On Mac OSX
Step 1: Firstly, open system preferences from the Apple menu.
Step 2: Next, you’ve to search for the network preferences under the section internet and wireless.
Step 3: Thereafter, there is a need to select the network through which there is a connection. Then, click on advanced button.

- Cisco 192.168.10.2, 192.168.1.254
Belkin and SMC routers 192.168.2.1
Sometimes, the IP address you put, is not your gateway. Hence, you might fail. Therefore, in such situations, you will get the correct gateway by following the steps given below.
Step 1: Firstly, open the command prompt, (you would get the same by pressing the Windows icon key + R).
Step 2: Then, enter cmd in the run box.

How to Change Your Router’s IP Address?
Meanwhile, one must have a good base in mathematics for changing the router’s IP address. Now the question arises who sets the IP address? It is manufacturer of the factory. Nonetheless, administrative console of the network also changes it.
But, an address conflict situation may arise. Further, this arises when other devices also have the same IP address which belong to your network. Thereby, there comes a need to change the IP address.

- Linksys http://192.168.1.1 Admin Admin
Meanwhile, if the above default credentials give you futile results, then reset the same. To reset the same, understand the steps.
Step 1: Meanwhile, you will find a hidden button in modern modems. Further, this button helps to reset the properties to the default factory settings. Therefore, press the button for approximately 10-15 seconds.
Step 2: Next up, you will be able to reset the device to factory settings.
Step 3: Finally, you will log in to the router settings with the default username and password.
So finally, after following all the above mentioned steps, you will be able to remove the resistance. Thank you for reading the article. I hope it provided you with the solutions.
