192.168.1.1 (mistakenly typed as 192.168.I.I) is an IP (Internet Protocol) address on your LAN (Local Area Network), set manually, or assigned automatically by the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server running on your router.
It is a common factory IP address for a consumer-grade router.
If the router is for Internet connections, then all computers and devices which access it will use the 192.168.1.1 address as its default gateway.
What is 192.168.1.1 IP
192.168.X.X is also “non-routeable” address, meaning that you’ll never see it “in the wild” of the Internet.
A default gateway is the address a computer or device will send any packets to which are not part of the local network. In this case, 192.168.1.X. For example, if your computer IP address is set to 192.168.1.101 and you have a network printer that has an IP address of 192.168.1.102, then you can print directly to the printer on your local network without going through the router.

Default Router login credentials
Most routers use a default username (admin) and default password (password) to access the configuration page.
If you try it and it doesn’t work, run a web search for the default username and password for your router brand, such as Netgear, Linksys, Asus, or TP-Link.
Can’t access 192.168.1.1? Here is what to do
First, we recommend you check your connectivity from laptop to network and also check if the LAN cable is blinking.
Then check what is the gateway IP address because some networks are configured with 10.0.0.1 as gateway of the router.
To check the IP
- Go to CMD
- Type ipconfig in cmd.
- Get the IP
Ping from command prompt
- Type tracert 192.168.1.1 and it will show the route to the destination IP
- Change your IPv4 address to DHCP.
If your router can’t access the address, then I will advise you reset your modem to the default IP address or contact an IT Technician to help with it.
