192.168.1.6

192.168.1.6 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. Like any other private IP address, 192.168.1.6 is not routable on the internet and it is used inside local area networks (like home wi-fi networks) and it can be assigned (automatically or manually) to any device connected to a local area network.

192.168.1.6 – Automatic Assignment (Dynamic IP)

If your router’s default gateway is 192.168.1.1, there’s a great chance that 192.168.1.6 is one of the available addresses in the DHCP pool. So, if the range of available addresses spans from 195.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.50, this address will be one of those that can be assigned to a device connected to your home network. Since we are talking about an automatic assignment, there’s no guarantee that 192.168.1.6 will be assigned to your PC, laptop, tablet, or phone but it can be. If you want this address assigned to a specific device every time, you can assign 192.168.1.6 to that device manually (set a static IP).

192.168.1.6 – Manual Assignment (Static IP)

So, if 192.168.1.6 is one of the available addresses in DHCP pool you can also assign it manually to your PC or any other device. In order to use this address as a static IP, you can make changes in TCP/IP properties (by disabling DHCP assigning and entering the address manually along with default gateway, subnet mask, and DNS server) or you can make a reservation in DHCP pool (by entering router’s configuration page and making changes in DHCP settings).

192.168.1.6 – Troubleshooting

You may experience an issue when trying to assign a static IP to your device. If the address you want to assign to your PC is already assigned to some other device and you assign it to your PC anyway, you will cause an IP conflict. Each device inside the network must have a unique IP address and if two devices have the same IP, they will be both disconnected and you won’t be able to reconnect them until the conflict is resolved. In order to reconnect them, you have to wait until the lease time expires or to release the IP address from the first device and then assign that same IP address to your PC. Connect your PC to the network and check if the address is assigned to your PC. If it is, you can connect that other device to the network. Since 192.168.1.6 is now taken, that device will get some other IP and the conflict will be resolved.
