Most of us use routers at homes, offices, etc. for a speedy internet connection, which is now a necessity! Well, routers stand unique because they have 2 IP addresses. An IP address is assigned to each of the ‘Interfaces‘ of the router. One of them is the Wide Area Network (WAN) interface, which faces the external side or the internet. It has a public IP address. Besides this, there is a Local Area Network (LAN) which faces the home network’s computers. It has a private IP address. The IP address 192.168.1.254 is generally used by the manufacturers as the default LAN IP address.

Many times we may have to access the router’s configuration settings to get the username and password of the router. It can be done by the hosted addresses (LAN addresses mentioned above). For the routers belonging to TP-Link, D-Link, Belkin, Billion, Netgear, etc. host addresses are used to obtain the username and the password. Whereas, there are exceptions such as routers made by Billion, Netopia, etc. which have an administrative IP address as 192.168.1.254.
