192.168.0.10 is a private IPV4 address. It’s one of the addresses from the block of private addresses within Class C. Some other private IP addresses are much more popular when it comes to default gateways but there are a few manufacturers using 192.168.0.10 as a default gateway. This address can also be assigned to your computer or any other device connected to your home network if your router’s default gateway is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.0.3.
Manufacturers Using 192.168.0.10 as a Default Gateway
You already know that this address is not a popular choice when it comes to default gateways but some manufacturers still assign this address to their device. You can find some D-Link print servers (DP-311P and DP-311U), Intel routers, Startech print servers (PM1115UWGB), and Z-Com bridges (XG-580) with 192.168.0.10 default gateway.
192.168.0.10 – Default gateway
If this address is assigned to your router you have to use it to configure your device and/or network. Simply type in the address in your browser, login (you have to know your device’s username and password in order to do that), and the configuration page will appear. You can find a bunch of different network-related settings here – you can change network name and password, change your device’s username and password, assign a static IP address to your PC, etc.
192.168.0.10 – Client’s IP address
There’s a much greater chance to see this address assigned to your computer or phone when you connect them to your home wi-fi network. One of the most common router default gateways is 192.168.0.1 and if that’s your case, 192.168.0.10 will be one of the available IP addresses inside the DHCP pool and can be assigned to your PC automatically (dynamic IP) or manually (static IP). Routers assign addresses automatically by default and if you want to assign 192.168.0.10 to your PC as a static IP, you will have to make some changes. There are two options – make a DHCP reservation or use TCP/IP properties to set the address manually. You will have to pay attention to one thing, though. You have to check if 192.168.0.10 is already assigned to some other device. If it’s already taken and you assign it manually to your PC, you will cause an IP conflict and none of these two devices will be able to connect to the internet. If you don’t know how to resolve an IP conflict, you should read this simple explanation.
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.
