The Internet is our daily need, and people nowadays can’t even imagine their life without an internet connection. There are several sources on the Internet. Some of the most popular sources are WiFi, Wireless Telecommunication, Ethernet, etc. Among all these sources, WiFi and Ethernet are very often used in commercial and personal places.
Every device connected to the internet connection has an IP address, and we will discuss this term in detail later. Every WiFi or Ethernet connection has a default IP address, either 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. This IP address is used for configuring the WiFi or Ethernet connection.
What Is 192.168.1.1?
As we all know, every device that communicates using an internet connection has a specific IP address. Similar is the case of WiFi and Ethernet devices, major Internet providing companies use 192.168.1.1 as the default IP address for several local event management. This IP address can be used to alter the WiFi credentials, i.e., Username and Password, Tracing Upload and Download Speed, Managing Connected Devices, etc.
Every WiFI or Ethernet owner does not access the administration panel. In most cases, this is operated by technicians. Now let us understand the IP address.
What Is The IP (Internet Protocol) Address?
It is a numeric identification label assigned to every computing device connected to the Internet for communication. Just like we humans have our residential address, similar computer devices have an IP address. This address helps one computer to communicate with other computers around the globe over the Internet.
Moreover, this IP address is used by cyber police and other IT departments to trace down the location of stolen devices such as smartphones, computers, etc. Hence, the IP address of a device helps the authorities to catch hackers and fraudsters.
Initially, internet version 4 (IPv4) was used to assign the IP address to devices. But as we experienced a huge surge in the number of internet users, internet version 6 (IPv6) is used to assign IP addresses to network devices.
