What is & How to Use it IP Address

Most users do not know what the IP address is used for. In this post we will try to explain as clearly as possible what this address represents and how it allows us to configure our router.

The first thing is to clarify that it is a private range address. In effect, all addresses that start with 192 are usually reserved for private networks. More precisely, this address is the one associated with most of the ADSL, FTTH (optical fiber) and VDSL routers in the market.




What is IP for?

It is the gateway between our PC and our router. That is, it will help us to configure all types of router data such as opening ports, updating the firmware, changing the name and password of the WiFi network, among other things.

The steps to access the router configuration are quite simple. Just enter (sometimes it can be through our favorite browser. On this page you should open the access screen and ask us to identify ourselves in order to modify the router configuration. If none of the previous IPs works for you, you will have to find out which is the correct gateway. It is easy to know, in Windows you should only run ipconfig and if you use Mac OS X or Linux, you will have to type in the ifconfig terminal.

If it still does not work, check that your Internet provider does not use a program or app to enter the router.

The password of is usually the one that comes by default:

  • Username: admin or 1234
  • Password: admin or 1234

If none of the above works, it is that someone has had to change them and you will have to restore the factory settings of the router. Routers usually have a button on the back that says "Reset" and is pressed by inserting a wire. It can also help you to do a Google search of the style "Router keys XXXX", replacing clear XXXX by the brand and model of your router.

Once you have entered this information, you will be inside the configuration panel of the router. As an extra data, you can also access the router's configuration interface through the telnet or ssh terminal. 192-168-l-l

What can the IP address be used for?

Accessing the configuration panel of the router you will realize that there are many options and many parameters to touch. However, our recommendation is that if you do not understand or if you are not very aware of this type of things, do not touch it. A bad configuration can leave you without Internet. Let's still see the most important functions. 192.168.l.l.co

Change the name and password of your WiFi network. The vast majority of people who want to configure the router do so by this option: modify the name and password that came by default on a sticker of the router by one of your choice. These original keys are usually easy to hack, so it's important that you do not make it easy for your neighbors. It can also be interesting for businesses to modify the name and put one so that users can identify it more easily. 192.168.l.l.co and  192-168-l-l.co

Remember that by changing the name or password of your network, you will have to change the configuration of all your devices (phones, computers, tablets, etc.) so that they connect correctly to this new network. It's a bit cumbersome, but it's worth that extra security.

Open and close ports. Each IP Address is assigned different ports that serve as communication channels to send and receive data from our terminal to the Internet. 192-168-l-l.co

For security, it is important to have the ports closed and only open those that are open by default, which will generally use services such as email or instant messaging services. However, some applications and games sometimes require you to open some unauthorized ports by default of the router.

Discover if someone connects to your WiFi. Other common reasons for accessing the router configuration are usually this. If you notice that Internet connection is slower in certain time slots or think that someone may be making use of your network, in the configuration of the router you will see a list of all connected devices, with their IP and MAC. The MAC address is a unique address that identifies a device. Then you can add MAC filters and block intruders. http://192-168-l-l.co/

Update the firmware. Like any other program, it is important to always have an updated version, with the latest security patches... for the router, it works exactly the same. From the configuration panel you can update the router's signature manually, http://192-168-l-l.co/ if it does not automatically do so.

As you can see, the IP address (or hides a large number of options and configurations, vital for the Internet to work as correctly as possible.
