192.168.1.107

192.168.1.107 is a private IPv4 address. It’s one of the addresses from the reserved block of private addresses within class C (all the 192.168.x.x addresses belong to this block). They are only used inside private networks and cannot be routed on the internet.

This address also belongs to a smaller 192.168.1.0/24 subnetwork. Some address from this subnetwork (192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.10, 192.168.1.100, and 192.168.1.254) are common default gateways. They often get assigned to modems and routers by their manufacturers. On the other hand, 192.168.1.107 is not one of those popular default gateways. This address is neither better nor worse than any other private IPv4 address. When it comes to default gateways, the manufacturers get to choose any private address they want and 192.168.1.107 was not a popular choice in the past (that doesn’t mean that 192.168.1.107 cannot be used in the future).

If it’s one of the available address in the DHCP pool, 192.168.1.107 can be assigned to any device connected to a home or some other private network. Any private address from the DHCP pool can be assigned automatically (dynamic IP) or manually (static IP).

192.168.1.107 as a Dynamic IP Address

The IP addresses are assigned to devices connected to private networks by the DHCP servers (routers or modems). The assignment process is automatic by default. In order for some address to be assigned, it has to be inside the DHCP pool (it has to be one of the available addresses).

We will try to explain the process of automatic assignment through one simple example. If your router’s default gateway is 192.168.1.100 and if the DHCP pool includes all the addresses within the range 191.168.1.101 to 192.168.1.200, 192.168.1.107 will be one of the available addresses. If the addresses are assigned sequentially (there’s no rule – they can be assigned randomly), 192.168.1.107 will be assigned to the 7th device connected to your home network.

If the address is assigned automatically to some device, it’s not permanently tied to it (it is only leased to that device). The router will occasionally check if the device is still connected to the network. If the device is connected, the lease will be renewed. If the device is disconnected, the address will become available again. The address can now be assigned to some other device. That’s why all the automatically assigned IP addresses are called dynamic IP addresses.

192.168.1.107 as a Static IP Address

If you want this (or any other IP address) permanently assigned to one specific device (PC, printer, copier, camera), you have to assign it manually. If the address is assigned manually, it will be marked as unavailable for other devices even if your device is not connected to the network (the address is reserved). That’s why manually assigned addresses are called static IP addresses. In order to assign a static IP to some device, you will have to make a reservation in the DHCP pool (through router’s configuration page) or to make a few changes in the TCP/IPv4 settings.
