Many users of routers have to face various problems and it is so common thing to face number of major problems by the new users. No one can control that until those users become skilled on the router and its related service. Many users do not pay attention on learning and they avoid reading all of the papers and manuals which have come with the router. Those material are primarily enough to guide them and some of the users depend on others. This is why, they look for different experts for solving many problems related with the router, internet connection and Wi-Fi. But all of them should learn few things as if they can solve some common problems related with those issues.
Miss type of IP address is common and major problem which you cannot ignore. Most of the time, it is found that many people type wrong IP address or they have typed the wrong IP address or made any mistake which has been carried by the browser history. So, they attempt to use the false IP address to use again and again. In many cases, it is found that users type the false IP address like 192.168.L.1. The IP address should be formed properly but it is not.
According to the formation of the IP address, there is no place for letters or words but in the IP address 192.168.L.1, L is used. Usually, letter “L” is put as small letter “l” in the IP address as “192.168.l.1”. The letter L is put there by mistake and instead of 1. The correct formation of the IP address is full of numbers and dots. You cannot use anything in the IP address except numbers and dots but in this IP address L is used. So, this IP address 192.168.L.1 does not work and it becomes false.
In the IP address 192.168.L.1, if the user place 1 in the place of letter L, then it will be a perfect IP address and it will be like 192.168.1.1. You should be careful for this reason what you typed. You cannot use any letter in the place of number. Some users type letter o instead of letter zero “0” in the IP address 192.168.0.1 and this is similar type of mistake. The users of the router usually made some mistake for their ignorance of the IP address. Because many users do not know much about the false IP address or the formation of the IP address.
There are some ways to make the IP address can be false and all of the users should know detail about those things as if they can avoid those problems later. Now we have known that we cannot use letter in the IP address. The number of IP address is the main contents and dots are used in the IP address for making partition in the IP address. In the IP address, users cannot use any symbol, sign or space. Because using those things are contamination of the IP address. If you use any of those things in the IP address, then the IP address becomes false.
See the correct formatted IP address 192.168.1.1 and in this IP address there are 3 dots are used and total IP address is divided into 4 parts. It is not possible to change the IP address this format. If anyone change this format of this format, then the IP address will be also a false IP address. Users should use correct format IP address if they want to use. If by mistake users put an extra dot in the IP address, then users will get error from the browser and this false formatted IP address has no use in the router. Similarly, you cannot less dot than 3 dots. So, the IP address will be formed into 4 parts by 3 dots.
Users need to change the IP address and it became necessary when IP address confliction occurs and some users change the IP address as they want but the router does not support any format that you wanted to setup. You should know all about the formation of the IP address and you can save it for that case. If you do not follow the IP address formation rules, the IP address does not accept such IP address and you cannot install that IP address in the router.
IP address confliction problem is very common problem and no user can solve this problem without changing the IP address. The IP address can be changed according to correct rules. When the users want to change the IP address, then they should know about the formation of the IP address and IP address class. From above users can know about the IP address formation.
The IP address class is major thing for IP address. IP address class A starts from 10, Class B starts from 172, Class C starts from 192. Usually those private IP address starts according to format Class A 10.0.0.0, Class B 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.0.0 and Class C 192.168.0.0. Address range for the Class A to 10.255.255.255, for Class B to 172.31.255.255 and Class C to 192.168.255.255. So, when users need to change the default IP address, then they should follow above IP address Class rules. For the IP address 192.168.L.1, user should fix the IP address and make it as 192.168.1.1 correct format IP address. They cannot change the IP address class and that is why, it will remain as 192.168. as it is and last two portion will be changed 1.1 and users can use any number from 0 to 255 in those places. So, the IP address can be formed as 192.168.255.255. Beyond the range of the IP address number, user cannot put any number with the IP address beyond 255.
Now You know many things which will help you to use correct formatted IP address and you already know when and why, you need to change the default IP address and how to setup a new IP address. Manual IP address is not permanent and this is why users should not trust on that. Users should keep the default IP address, username and password in a note for using later. All of those things. if you cannot remember any manual login detail, then you cannot login to the router and then you need to reset the router. When you reset the device, then all setting will go away and then you need to use default data for login to the router.
This is why, it is important to read the router manual and other included papers which you need to use. Manual comes with correct information and guideline. So, users usually do not face any terrible situation. There is a troubleshooting chapter in every router which you need to read if you face any common problem related with the router and Wi-Fi.
