10.0.1.1

10.0.1.1 is a class A private IPV4 address. It belongs to the reserved block of private IP addresses within Class A (all 10.x.x.x IP addresses belong to this block). Blocks of private addresses are reserved for private networks and they are not routable on the internet.

Devices with 10.0.1.1 Default Gateway

10.0.1.1 is used by manufacturers like Apple, WatchGuard, and Metalink. They assign this address to their networking devices. Apple Airport Extreme base station has its IP address set to 10.0.1.1. You can also find it on WatchGuard wireless routers and access points (Firebox T15 and T35W, FS2E5W, MS5AE5W), and on Metalink access points and bridges.

Configuring Devices with 10.0.1.1 Default Gateway

The usual way of configuring networking devices doesn’t apply to Apple routers. Well, that’s not completely true. You can always type in this address in your web browser and configure your Apple Airport Extreme but there’s much easier way. Airport Extreme comes with a simple utility tool (AirPort Utility) that you can use to configure all the network-related settings. The initial configuration takes no more than 5 minutes and all the instructions are pretty much straightforward.

If you have some other device with 10.0.1.1 default gateway, you can perform the initial configuration the usual way. Let’s take WatchGuard T15 as an example. Just type in the address in the address bar of your browser, and enter your router’s username and password when the login page appears.

WatchGuard T15 – Login Page

After typing in the correct username and password, the initial configuration will begin. You will be asked to select the method for setting external IP addresses (DHCP, PPPoE or Static), then you will have to configure the interface for the selected method, set the DHCP pool and WatchGuard IP address, and set passwords. After the initial configuration, you can always enter the configuration page by typing in the address from the title (10.0.1.1) in your browser and adjust the settings if you want to.

Troubleshooting 10.0.1.1

Typing mistakes are the most common issue. Entering a wrong address (like 10.0.0.1 or 10.0.1.0) will get you nowhere and you won’t be able to access the configuration page if you don’t type in the correct address.

Assigning this IP address to a device connected to a router with 10.0.1.1 default gateway will cause a serious issue called IP conflict. If you do that, none of the devices connected to your home network won’t be able to access the internet until you resolve this issue.
