192.168.1.250

192.168.1.250 is a private IPV4 address. It’s one of the addresses from the block of private addresses inside Class C (all 192.168.x.x addresses belong to this block). It’s not routable on the internet and it’s used inside local area networks only.

192.168.1.250 is one of those addresses that router and modem manufacturers assign to their devices but it can also be assigned to your computer or any other device connected to your home router (if your router’s default gateway is 192.168.1.1, 192.168.10, or 192.168.1.100 and if it’s one of the available addresses inside the DHCP pool).

Devices Using 192.168.1.250 as a Default Gateway

Some manufacturers assign this IP address to their modems, routers, bridges, access points, and other devices. If the IP address is assigned to a router, it’s called a default gateway. Some of the manufacturers using this address are: 3Comm (access point – 3CRWE454G75), Airlink (access point – AP431W; repeaters – AP311W, AP421W), Linksys (access points – WAP11, WAP51AB; bridges -WGA54AG, WGA600N; router – WET610N), Netgear (extenders – WN3500RP, EX7300, EX6400; repeaters – WN3000RP, WN2500RP), Trendnet access point (TEW-510APB), SparkLAN (access points – WX-6800, WX-1590M).

If your router’s default IP address is 192.168.1.250, you have to use it in order toget access tothe router’s configuration panel (and in order to configure yourlocal area network and make other adjustments). During the initial configuration, you are supposed to change your router’s username and password as well as your wi-fi network name (SSID) and password. You are also supposed to select the encryption method. After the initial configuration, you can make advanced adjustments (DHCP settings, security settings, MAC and IP filters, etc.) but you don’t have to. We have prepared a small tutorial on how to open configuration panel and how to change your SSID (wi-fi network name) and password. The device used in this example was WGA 600N Linksys bridge but the process is pretty much the same for every router/modem/bridge/access point.

Step 1 – Type in the address in the address bar and press ENTER

Step 2 – The login window will appear. You will have to type in router’s default username and password and click on Log In.

Step 3–The configuration panel will open. You should click on the Wireless tab.

Step 4 – In the wireless tab, you should choose the wireless network mode and enter the SSID you like.

Step 5 – Scroll down to Wireless Security Mode, choose the encryption (WPA2/PSK is recommended) and choose the password.  Then scroll up to the top of the page and click on Save Changes.

Step 6 – Reboot your device

Assigning 192.168.1.250 Automatically (Dynamic IP)

192.168.1.250 can also be assigned to your device (PC, laptop, printer, phone) if it’s one of the available addresses in the DHCP pool. If your router’s default IP address is 192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.10, or 192.168.1.100, this address can be one of the available addresses (or you can redefine the DHCP range to include this address). Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that 192.168.1.250 will be assigned to your device every time. If you want that, you will have to assign it manually.

Assigning 192.168.1.250 Manually (Static IP)

If 192.168.1.250 is one of the available addresses in the DHCP pool, you can assign it manually to your PC, printer, or any other device. There are two ways to do that – disable automatic address obtaining and type in the IP address you want to use in TCP/IP properties or make a reservation in the DHCP pool. Both ways are pretty simple but before making this address static, you should check if it’s already taken.

IP Conflict

Assigning an IP address that’s already assigned to some other device will cause an IP conflict (two devices with the same IP address inside one network) and, as a result, devices using the same IP address will be disconnected and won’t be able to reconnect until the IP conflict is resolved.
