Why is this IP address so common ?
All routers brands must use a private IP address. At the beginning many of them like Netgear, 3Com, Linksys… started to use 192.168.1.x as the default IP for their devices. This private range begins with the basic 192.168.0.0 address but most of them decided to start with 1 using 192.168.1.1 as the default IP for a private home network. Thus the first IP after that is, guess what ? 192.168.1.2 ! Easy to understand.
How to assign 192.168.1.2 to a device ?
Normally all networks assign a private IP address to any device using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). It means, your device’s IP might change or be assigned to another device trying to join the network. If you want to assign this IP manually (static or fixed address assignment), you can do it but it can lead to some issues if your router is not set to support it. You should read your user’s manual to be sure. Anyway, if you want to give it a try you should allow your router to control assignment for your home network. It’d be easier…
I lost my username and password
If you lost your username and password and can not login to your router’s admin area to make some changes in the settings, you’ve got 3 different options. The fist one is to find those information in your router’s manual, the second one is to find them on the back of your device, and the third one is to reset your router, all settings will be set back to default. You can use our huge default username/password database by searching on the main index of this website. This is how to proceed !
