Expalin this TCP IP Adress 192.168.0.1

by Ann777 In reply to Expalin this TCP IP Adres ...

About half the manufacturers out there seem to use the 192.168.0.x/255.255.255.0 network. The other half uses 192.168.1.x/255.255.255.0.

192.168.x.x id not routable. Thus most manufacturers will assume an internal address scheme of 192.168.x.x.

All manufacturers of hardware allow you to change the internal LAN scheme. There's no way for a manufacturer to stay in business if these were absolute and unchangeable. Print Servers, routers, etc. all have to be configured to your ip addressscheme (routeable or not).

Broadband routers (DSL/Cale routers) use NAT to achieve Network Address Translation (so they communicate through the web via one routable ip address that the ISP provides)... but internal addressing can be whatever you decide.

This address is reserved for private networks and is not used in the Internet. Contrary to what other may say, it is routeable, it is not routed in the Internet.

The reserved address to be used on private networks (RFC1918/BCP0005) are:

- 10.0.0.0/8 (.../255.0.0.0)
- 172.16.0.0/12 (.../255.240.0.0)
- 192.168.0.0/16 (.../255.255.255.0)

Any address and subnet that matches those addressess can be used in private networks, as long it does not propagate to the Internet, directly (this can be done with proxy or NAT routers).

Why to use 192.168.0.0? It is the easiest to configure, with enough addresses for lots of subnets; it is perfect for small/medium size networks.
