What is 192.168.2.1

Posted by 17 September, 2009 (1) Comment

The 192.168.2.1 is an IP address default that is used for particular forms of residential broadband routers.  It’s a private IP network address that can be used on a repetitive basis as long as it’s present on different networks. This IP address is specifically used as a gateway default by the SMC and Belkin broadband routers which mean that the 192.168.2.1 can be used as a medium through which one subnet can pass information to another subnet. The DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol) of the routers can enable the automatic designation of IP address to the computers on its network. Thus if computers with a fixed IP address of 192.168.2.1 are set it may cause an IP clash on the entire network.
