192.168.10.1

Just like many addresses we’ve been talking about previously, 192.168.10.1 is another address used as a default gateway. It’s not as popular as 192.168.1.1 but there is still a significant number of router manufacturers and router models using this address as a default router IP.

In this article, we are going to explain the significance of a default gateway and show you how to use it. We are also going to show you how to perform initial configuration of your router and how to make some simple changes that will improve your security.

We won’t be talking about principles of IP addressing, IP protocols, different types of IP addresses (different classes, private and public IP addresses, static and dynamic addresses, or subnetting) but if you want to find out more about these topics (in order to get better understanding of IP addresses and of this specific address), you can read our articles about some other default gateways like 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.2.

What is Default Gateway?

The default gateway is an IP address just like any other but still a bit different. The default gateway is the common name used for those addresses assigned to different modems and routers. Our modems and routers usually have some Class C (192.168.x.x), or sometimes, Class A (10.x.x.x) IP address. They need these addresses in order to communicate with other devices on the network. Router manufacturers can assign any given private address to their routers but some addresses are more often used than others. Our address, 192.168.10.1, is one of those.

Why Do You Need to Know the Default Gateway of Your Router?

Whatever network-related adjustment you want to make, you have to know your router’s IP address in order to access the configuration page. So, if you want to change your wireless network name and password – you need this address, if you want to change router’s username and password (for security reasons) – you need it again, if you want to adjust firewall settings (block some URLs, domains, etc.) – you need to know the default gateway.

Devices Using 192.168.10.1 As Their Default Gateway?

The most popular manufacturers that assign this address to their routers are D-Link (DSR, DWS, and DWC series) and Trendnet. There are also other modem and router manufacturers using this exact same address for their devices. Some of them are Motorola, Repotec, Zoom, Zyxel, Encore, Medialink, WeVO, etc.

How to Use Router’s Default Gateway?

Using the default gateway to enter router’s setup page is fairly simple. In order to configure your router, you have to type in this IP address in your browser and hit Enter. The login page will show up and you will have to enter the right username and password. If this is the first time you are entering the setup page, use the default username and password (usually admin for bot fields – if not, you can look for defaults in the user manual or look at the label on the router). After entering the right username and password, you will finally enter the setup page. This is the point when the fun starts. You are just a few clicks away from changing bunch of different settings.

This is how your router’s login and configuration (or setup) pages could look like if you are using some Trendnet or D-Link routers (the reason why we’ve chosen these models is the fact that they use 192.168.10.1 as the default gateway).

Login pages

D-Link DWC-1000

TRENDnet – TEW432BAP

TRENDnet – N300 (TEW-731BR)

As you can see two different models made by the same manufacturer don’t necessarily have the exact same login page or setup page interface.

Configuration Pages

D-LINK

TRENDnet – TEW432BAP

TRENDnet – TEW633GR

 

Changing SSID (Wireless Network Name) and Your Network Password

In order to prevent others from connecting to your network, you should change your Wi-Fi name and password. The procedure is simple and you will find all the explanations with pictures below.

D-Link Routers

Step 1 – In configuration page, go to Advanced Tab, and then click on SSIDs

Step 2 – The SSID page will open. You should enter the name you want and click on Add

Step 3 – You will be redirected to Security Settings Page for your network. You should select WPA/WPA2, enter the new password below, and click on Save Settings

TRENDnet Router

Step 1 – In router’s Configuration Page, click on Wireless Tab and enter the name you like in SSID field and click Apply

Step 2 – Go to Security Menu in Wireless Tab and set Authentication type to WPA2 or WPA, or use WPA-Auto and click Apply.

Step 3 – Additional security settings will appear and you can enter the password (or passphrase you want)

Changing Router’s Username and Password

D-Link Router

Step 1 – In Configuration Page, click on Advanced Tab, select Users menu, and then select Users submenu.

Step 2 – The list of Users will appear. Click on the checkbox next to the Admin and select Edit.

Step 3 – User configuration window will open. You can enter the username and password you like and click on Save Settings. You have to check the box ‘’Check to Edit Password’’ in order to edit your password.

TRENDnet Router

Step 1 – In Configuration Page, click on Maintenance Tab, and select Admin menu. You should type in username, old and new password and then click on Modify.

These were just two simple things you should do during the initial configuration of your router. There is a bunch of other things you could do by using configuration page (adjusting firewall rules and exceptions, assigning static IPs, checking your internet traffic, etc.)  but you will have to read about these settings in our next article.

Hopefully, you have a slightly better understanding of 192.168.10.1 IP address now. The idea was to explain some basic terms and show you how to use this address. If you want to know more, you can always read some other articles on this website (especially those about default gateway addresses).
