Definition: The IP address 192.168.0.1 is the default for certain home broadband routers, principally various D-Link and Netgear models. The manufacturer at the factory sets this address, but you can change it at any time using the network router’s administrative console. Home routers can use it to establish the default gateway. On such routers, you can access its administrative console by pointing a Web browser to http://192.168.0.1.
Any brand of router, or any computer on a local network for that matter, can be set to use this address or a comparable private IPv4 address. As with any IP address, only one device on the network should use 192.168.0.1 to avoid address conflicts.
