192.168.0.105 is a private IPV4 address. It’s a class C address and it belongs to the reserved block of private addresses within this class. This block includes all 192.168.x.x IP addresses and they can all be used on private networks or assigned (automatically or manually) to any device connected to a private network. These addresses can’t be routed on the internet and can’t be accessed from outside the network.
192.168.0.105 is not a popular choice when it comes to default gateways. Router and modem manufacturers don’t assign it to their devices (we don’t know about any device with this IP address). 192.168.0.105 is not better or worse than some other addresses (192.168.0.100, 192.168.0.101, 192.168.0.2) but it’s not as popular as those and it simply doesn’t get assigned to routers/modems as a default gateway.
If your router’s default gateway is any 192.168.0.x address, there’s a great chance that 192.168.0.105 will be one of the available addresses in the DHCP pool. If that’s the case, 192.168.0.105 can be assigned (automatically or manually) to any device connected to your home network.
192.168.0.105 as a Dynamic IP Address
If 192.168.0.105 is one of the available addresses in the DHCP pool, it can be assigned to your PC or any other device connected to your home network. If your router’s default gateway is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.0.2, and if the addresses are assigned in a sequential order, there’s a small chance that you will get this address assigned to your device but if your router’s default gateway is 192.168.0.100, there’s a much greater chance.
192.168.0.105 as a Static IP Address
If you want this address assigned to your device every time it gets connected to your home network, you have to assign it manually as a static IP. There are two ways to do that – you can make a reservation in the DHCP pool or make a few changes in TCP/IPV4 settings.
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.
