An IP address consists of 4 numbers that are ranging between 0 and 255. “Network Id” and “Device Id” are the two parts of the number in which the first three numbers in the IP is the Network Id and the fourth number is the device Id.

Say, for example, 192.168.1 is the Network Id and 20 is the device Id in the IP address. If multiple devices are connected to the home network, their first 3 digits will be common that confirms their presence on the same network. And, the fourth number will be different that shows a particular device Id, that is their Unique Identity. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol is configured on the routers by default that enables to allot a Unique IP to each device.

Other than the private address, there will be a public address for a router or modem. All the devices share a common public address on a given network and it is visible in the external network. A Private address is translated to a Public address while communicating with an outside network and converts vice versa while communicating back with its devices in its network. This is called Network Address Translation (NAT) process.

Generally, login is by mistake typed as 192.168.l.l. ,192.168.l.1.1. 192.168.l.1, 192.168 l 1 login. Sometimes, users will choose the auto-selection that is saved with such wrong IPs.

  3. Connect to the power : Router booting may take some time. A green light or the indication as shown in the manual will indicate the router is ready
  4. Connect the router to the internet: Connect Modem/broadband cable/ ISP gateway cable to the internet port of the router. This port generally comes up with a different color.
