192.168.1.110 is a private IPv4 address. It belongs to the reserved block of private addresses within class C. All the 192.168.x.x addresses (192.168.0.0/16 subnet) belong to this reserved block and there are 65,534 addresses in total. Private addresses can only be used inside private networks and cannot be routed on the internet.
192.168.1.110 also belongs to a smaller 192.168.1.0/24 subnetwork. The most popular default gateways from this subnetwork are 192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.10, 192.168.1.100, and 192.168.1.254. They are often assigned to modems and routers by their manufacturers. 192.168.1.100 is not such a popular choice and it’s not a common gateway. 192.168.1.110 is not worse (or better) than any other private IP address and can be assigned to modems/routers in the future.
It is more likely to see this address assigned to some device connected to your home or some other private network if your router’s default gateway is one of the previously mentioned common default gateways and if the address is inside the DHCP pool. The address can be assigned automatically (dynamic IP) or manually (static IP).
192.168.1.110 as a Dynamic IP
Routers assign IP addresses automatically by default. The address from the title can be assigned to some device only if it’s one of the available addresses in the DHCP pool. For example, if your router’s default gateway is 192.168.1.100 and if the range of available addresses spans from 192.168.1.101 to 192.168.1.200, 192.168.1.110 will be one of the available addresses. If the addresses are assigned sequentially (they can also be assigned randomly), 192.168.1.110 will be assigned to the 10th device connected to the network.
When some IP address is assigned to a certain device automatically, it’s not permanently tied to that device. This address is only leased to the device for a certain period of time (lease time). After the lease time expires, the router (DHCP server) checks if the device is still connected. If it is connected, the lease will be renewed. If it’s not connected, the address will become available again and it can be assigned to some other device. That’s why it’s called dynamic IP address.
192.168.1.110 as a Static IP
If you want to assign this address permanently to some device (PC, camera, printer), you have to do that manually and make it static. If a device has a static IP address, that IP address cannot be assigned to any other device even if that device is not connected (it’s excluded from the DHCP pool and reserved for that device only). In order to assign a static IP address to your device, you have to make a reservation in the DHCP pool (through the router’s configuration page) or to make some adjustments in the TCP/IPv4 settings on your computer.
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.
