192.168.2.2 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 belong to this block. They are all reserved for private use, and they can’t be accessed from outside the private network.
Devices with 192.168.2.2 Default Gateway
192.168.2.2 can be assigned to your router or some other networking device by the manufacturer. It’s not a popular default gateway address but you can still find it on some devices. Some of the manufacturers using this address for their devices are Dell (access point – WAPA-118GD), Edimax (repeater – EW-7438RPn, print server – PS-1208UWg), Gemtek (access point – P-780), and SMC (access points – SMC2555W-AG, SMC2552W-G2, SMC2552W, SMCWEB-N).
Here’s an example of a device with 192.168.2.2 default gateway:
Edimax Print Servers have 192.168.2.2 default gateway
Assigning 192.168.2.2 Automatically (Dynamic IP) and Manually (Static IP)
This address can be assigned to some of your devices connected to your home network if your router’s default gateway is 192.168.2.1. Many routers on the market have 192.168.2.1 gateway – you can find it on Edimax, Linksys, Microsoft, Siemens, SMC Networks, Trendnet, U.S. Robotics, and other routers. So, if 192.168.2.1 is your default gateway, and if the DHCP pool starts at 192.168.2.2, this address will be assigned (automatically) as a dynamic IP address to the first device that gets connected to your home network. When you disconnect that device, the address becomes available again and it can be assigned to some other device.
If you want this address assigned to some specific device every time that device gets connected to your home network, you will have to assign it manually or make a reservation in the DHCP pool. That way, you will make 192.168.2.2 a static IP address.
When assigning this address manually, you have to check if the address is already assigned to some other device and since 192.168.2.2 is the first address in the DHCP pool, there’s a great chance that it is. If the address is already taken and you assign it to your device, both devices with 192.168.2.2 IP address will be disconnected. This issue is known as IP conflict.
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.
