Description

A lot of PC users are wondering what could these numbers possibly mean, and since there isn’t a lot of information regarding this subject online (at least for those of us with little technical knowledge), we decided to try and give you a simple answer once and for all.

What is 192.168.1.1?

Whenever you need to set up your local router, the only way to access it is through its default gateway. This basically means that typing 192.168.1.1 in your browser takes you to router’s control panel which can then be modified, though it’s highly recommended you don’t change the settings if everything’s working fine. The 192.168.1.1 is a special reserved block of non-routable private IP address and it connects the router to the rest of the network. Any other address that doesn’t start with these numbers, for example 8.8.4.4 and such, is outside of your subnet, or to put it simply – it belongs to some other computer in the outside world. There are probably millions of devices that share the same address in the private network, but they never come into conflict with each other because these IPs are used only for communication within the network. To go beyond your private network outside the IP address range and browse the Internet, you have to use a firewall, proxy or router. Every PC gets the IP address from the router via DHCP protocol, which basically means your PC will get a temporarily reserved address and use it to register on the network.
