10.1.10.1 is a class A private IPv4 address. It belongs to the block of private addresses within class A just like all the addresses from the 10.0.0.0/8 subnetwork. Private addresses are used within private (LAN) networks and can’t be routed on the internet.
10.1.10.1 is the first available address inside the 10.1.10.0/24 subnetwork and since it’s the first available address within a subnetwork it’s used by some manufacturers (Xfinity and SMC Networks) as a default gateway for their routers and modems. This address can also be assigned to a device connected to a large corporate network. Still, it’s much more often used as a default gateway.
What Can You Do If 10.1.10.1 is Your Router’s Default Gateway?
If 10.1.10.1 is assigned to your router, you can use this address to access router’s configuration page and change/adjust network and security settings – change your SSID name and password, router’s username and password, adjust firewall settings, DHCP settings (change the scope of available addresses or assign a static IP to some device), etc.
In order to access the configuration page and adjust settings, you just have to type in this address into your browser’s address bar.
Hello, I am Anthony Stuart…
I am writer and editor at RouterInstructions. I’ve been working as a network specialist for various employers for almost 15 years. In my lifetime, I have installed thousands of routers, modems, bridges, switches, etc. My job also includes designing, monitoring, and maintaining local area networks (LANs) as well as wide area networks (WANs). I want to share my knowledge and experience with you and help you understand the basics of IP addressing. I am also going to write about routers, network security, and other network-related topics.
