192.168.1.105 is a private IPv4 address. It’s a Class C address and it belongs to 192.168.0.0/16 subnetwork. All the addresses from this block of private addresses are reserved for use inside private networks. Private addresses can’t be routed on the internet and can’t be accessed from outside the network.
192.168.1.105 can be one of the available addresses in the DHCP pool and can be assigned to a device connected to your home network (automatically or manually).
192.168.1.105 – Automatic Assignment
If your router’s default gateway is 192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.10, 192.168.1.99, 192.168.1.100, 192.168.1.254, and if 192.168.1.105 is one of the available addresses inside the DHCP pool, it can be automatically assigned to a device connected to your home network. Depending on the way the DHCP pool is defined and on the way the addresses are assigned (they are usually assigned in a sequential order), there will be more or less chance for a device to get this address assigned to it. If the address is assigned to your device automatically (dynamic IP), when you disconnect your device, the address becomes available again and can be assigned to some other device. So, your device won’t get the same address assigned to it the next time it joins the network. If you want the same IP address assigned to your device every time it joins the network you have to make it static (you have to assign it manually).
192.168.1.105 – Manual Assignment
If you want to assign 192.168.1.105 manually to a specific device, you have to make changes in the DHCP settings or you can make some adjustments in TCP/IPv4 settings. Before assigning 192.168.1.105 manually to your device, you should check if the address is, in fact, inside the DHCP pool and if it’s already assigned to some other device. If you ignore the fact that the address is already taken and assign it to your PC, you will cause an IP conflict and both devices will be disconnected from the network.
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.
