192.168.0.5

192.168.0.5 is a private IPv4 address. It belongs to 192.168.0.0/24 subnetwork and along with all the other 192.168.x.x IP addresses, it belongs to the reserved block of private addresses inside Class C. This is not the only block of private addresses. All 10.x.x.x addresses, as well as all the addresses within the range 172.16.0.0-172.31.255.255, are also private addresses and they all have the same purpose. They are reserved for private networks and can’t be routed on the internet. Private addresses are assigned to routers, modems, and other networking devices by their manufacturers (the addresses assigned to those devices are called default gateway addresses). Our routers assign private addresses to all devices connected to our home networks.

There is no difference between the address from our title and any other private address. They are all the same but some are still more popular. Router and modem manufacturers like to use addresses like 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 as default gateways. 192.168.0.5 is not as popular and manufacturers don’t assign it to their devices but it can easily be assigned to your PC or any other device connected to your home network if your router’s default gateway is any 192.168.0.x address. So, if your default gateway is, let’s say, 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.0.2, 192.168.0.5 will be one of the addresses inside the DHCP pool and it could be assigned to your PC or some other device. 192.168.0.5 can be assigned automatically (dynamic IP) or manually (static IP).

192.168.0.5 – Automatic Assignment

If you don’t change the default router settings, your router will automatically assign an IP address to every device that gets connected to your home network. The DHCP pool (the range of available IP addresses) is predefined and the addresses will be assigned in a sequential order. So, if your router’s default gateway is 192.168.0.1, the range of available addresses could span from 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.102 (the range of available addresses as well as the number of available addresses can be changed at any moment). If that’s the case, 192.168.0.5 will be the fourth address and it will be assigned to the fourth device that gets connected to your network. The problem with automatic assignment is that you can’t get the same IP assigned to your device every time you connect that device to your home network. That’s why it’s called dynamic IP. In case you need a static IP, you will have to assign it manually.

192.168.0.5 – Manual Assignment

Manual alignment is pretty much simple procedure but it still requires caution. You can assign an IP address manually through the DHCP settings in router’s configuration page (by making a DHCP reservation) or you can make some changes in TCP/IPv4 settings without accessing router’s configuration page. You don’t have to be an expert in IP addressing to do that but you have to check if the address is already taken. Don’t assign 192.168.0.5 to your device if it’s already assigned to some other device. If you do that, you will cause an IP conflict.
