IP addresses (Internet Protocol Address) are labels (numerical) assigned to devices which are connected to the computer network that uses Internet Protocol for their communication. There are five classes of IP addresses of which first three are in use commercially. Class A has octet (first) range 1 to 126 (ex: 10.1.1.1), Class B has octet(first) range as 128 to 191 (ex: 188.8.131.52), Class C has octet(first) range 192 to 223 (ex:192.168.0.254)
The main roles of IP addresses are location addressing and network (or host) interface identification. Thus the location of the host is provided in the network and creates a path to host. An IP packet contains an address (IP) of sending and destination hosts.
The computers connected directly to the DSL modems (without router) use public IPs. The private IPs are the special kind of IPs that are known to the router (only) and also by its home network. A web server does not deliver Internet data to private IP addresses.
How to Access 10.1.1.1?
To log in the IP address 10.1.1.1, we need to go through a set of steps:
- First of all, the browser has to be opened from a tablet, PC, smartphone, or from any of the web-connected devices that are linked from the router.
- 10.1.1.1 is to be typed in the address bar (Press Enter). A connection with the router will start to generate by the browser.
- Once the above steps are followed, the page opened will now ask for login credentials.
- Enter the username and the password. It is not a matter to worry about because a particular username and password are assigned to every router. The box with the model number or the login ID of the router or on the router there must be a mark. Then the default credentials can be searched on google by the model number.
- After the username and password have been put in as asked on the opening page. The router setting window has to be opened.
- Proceeding with configuration, the changes to be made and then save the changes before closing the browser.
- It is mostly the admin the default credentials (or no entries – sometimes). A blank password can be tried if the D-Link router is not being used or ‘admin’ key can be used as most routers are configured in this way by the default (factory) settings.
Getting into Admin Login Panel of 10.1.1.1
The name of the network is set by default when the sign 10.1.1.1 is in use in the router. To change it to any of the desired names, we need to first login to the router. After that, there are various ways by which the settings can be changed.
The accessing to the setting page of the router is required in case of changing of login (default) credentials or changing of the current username and password.
The 10.1.1.1 IP address refers to the Class A address (private IP) block. It is a part of the 10.0.0.0/8 network. These are commonly set up for private home networks. They are not routable on the internet.
For the router, access points (or any other devices of the network) we can use it as the factory default IP. By pointing to 10.1.1.1 IP utilizing the web browser, the router management can be accessed.
10.1.1.1 is assigned to devices for local networks (configured for using this range in particular). This is also set as an IP address (default) by a few broadband home routers (including D-Link models and Belkin).
The IP address is needed only when it is needed to access/block a device with this IP address (assigned to it). Taking an example, we can see that to make changes in a router having 10.1.1.1 as its default IP address we need this address to do it.
A router with a different IP address can change it to 10.1.1.1. If the local network is supporting the address in this range, then any of the computers may use 10.1.1.1. Taking an example, it is clear that a subnet with a starting address as the 10.1.1.0 would naturally be able to assign an address in range 10.1.1.1 to 10.1.1.254.
Why is 10.1.1.1 Used?
10.1.1.1 is mostly used for the setup of the (private) home network. It can be used as the factory (default) IP for the access point (or any other devices for the network) and the router.
Troubleshooting Router Issues of 10.1.1.1 IP addresses
There can be many problems regarding IP address issues. To take up a few, we can start by the mistyping confusion of many people. For example, in place of 10.1.1.1, they may type it as 10.0.1.1 or 10.0.0.1 or as 10.0.0.0. A mistake in typing the IP address may lead to a lot of troubles during the login procedure. Thus it becomes essential the write the correct IP addresses during the login procedures in the router.
Another case may occur if devices of multiple networks use the same IP address. These (common) IP address conflicts can be avoided if only a particular (only one) device is assigned by this IP address (on the same network). Thus if 10.1.1.1 is assigned to a router, then it must not be assigned to any client.
There may be specific issues where there are hardware related problems for the router. In these kinds of problems, it is made sure to rectify these problems.
It should be made sure that the network is active and the Wi-Fi or Ethernet line signals are connected.
Points to Remember for 10.1.1.1
- The concluding factors include that since 10.1.1.1 (gateway) is a private type of IP address. Thus it must only be used at home and smaller network.
- If the network (local) is supporting the addresses in its own range. Then the computer may use the IP address 10.1.1.1.
- It is to be noted that while accessing the Router’s web interface through http://10.1.1.1. We are not obtaining any kind of web site over the internet. The configuration pages of the router are built in the router.
- While starting your troubleshooting, you need to make sure that the computer network ports are connected to any one of the router’s LAN ports (Ethernet ports) by the use of network cable. And under the control panel.
- Network Connections, it should be ensured that the local area connection is enabled.
