192.168.0.101 is a private IPV4 address from the block of private addresses within class C. Like all the private addresses it can’t be routed on the internet. 192.168.0.101 is rarely used by modem and router manufacturers but there are a few devices on the market using this address as a default gateway. This address is usually one of the available IP addresses in the DHCP pool for routers with 192.168.0.1, 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.10, 192.168.0.100 default gateways and can be assigned to your PC, phone, or any other device automatically or manually.
Devices with 192.168.0.101 default gateway
192.168.0.101 is not such a popular choice when it comes to default gateways. The most renowned manufacturers assigning this address to their devices are D-Link (DNS-120 network storage adapter), Netgear (WGX102 access point), and SerComm (IP822LM access point). If this address is assigned to your device, you can type in the address in your browser, log in, and open the configuration page that you can use to adjust different network parameters and to configure your device.
Assigning 192.168.0.101 Automatically (Dynamic IP)
If your router’s default gateway is 192.168.0.1, 192.168.0.100, 192.168.0.3, this address can be assigned to your device (PC, laptop, tablet, etc.) since it’s usually one of the available addresses in the DHCP pool (for 192.168.0.1 gateway, the DHCP pool could span from 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254 but it doesn’t have to – you can always reduce the number of available addresses to 50 or 100). Still, the chances of getting this address assigned to your device are slim since it’s in the middle of the pool and the addresses are often leased from the DHCP pool in a sequential order. Luckily, you can always assign this address manually to your PC.
Assigning 192.168.0.101 Manually (Static IP)
If you like this address you can assign it as a static IP to your PC. That way, you will have the same static IP assigned to your PC every time you connect it to the internet. One thing you have to pay attention to is the number of already assigned addresses. To be more precise, you have to check if this address is already assigned to some other device. If it’s already assigned automatically to some device and you assign it to some of your devices, you will cause an IP conflict and you won’t be able to connect neither of these devices to your home network. The access will be denied to both devices because each device must have a unique IP address and you have two devices with the same IP. If you don’t know how to resolve this issue, you can find some nice suggestions and explanations here.
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.
