An IP address is a most fascinating term which we require to communicate over the internet. Each IP address will be assigned to either a particular system or as the hostname. We cannot remember all the IP’s as we deal with many IP’s every day. So we replace these IP addresses with the hostnames which are English phrases. All the IP addresses are divided into some classes. Each class contains a set of addresses.192.168.1.2 is a private network which comes under “CLASS C.”
About the IP Address 192.168.1.2
This is used as the default IP address in most of the routers, and their subnets start from this IP address. The devices that connect to this IP address have the subnet IP addresses of 192.168.1.2. All the devices that connect to this have a private IP address. And the main router is considered to have a public IP address. This is public because it has to communicate with all the networks that are present over the internet.
Speaking practically, you can consider this IP address 192.168.1.2 as the starting point of the assignment of the IP addresses to different devices that are connect to it. For this purpose of assigning the IP addresses to different devices, we use an algorithm called a “DHCP algorithm” which is an abbreviation for “Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol.”
Each time the device disconnects from the router, it will assign a new IP address, and this can be dynamic, and the “DHCP will do this work.”If we want to have the same IP address each time we connect and disconnect to the router we can “reserve” the IP address by saving the IP address in DHCP settings and also saving the device name.
By accessing the administration panel, we can change the network configurations of that specific router. This IP address 192.168.1.2 acts mostly as a home network and usually works within the home, and outside its area, it acts as a public IP address.
How to Login IP Address 192.168.1.2?
Actually, every router has its username and password printed on it’s back you can enter that username and password in the frame that it provides to you. The steps of other way of authentication are as follows:

- When you enter the respective username and password, you can log in into the interface and can change the settings.
- Only some settings can be changed, and all cannot be changed as it is tested as a public IP address.
- Generally, the username will be empty, and the password will be “1234” or empty. Sometimes you can take the username as “root” or “admin.”
- After entering into the admin panel, you should make sure that you change the default username and password to prevent the attacks on our network.
What if you Forget the Username and Password?
There are some cases wherein you forget all the login details of 192.168.1.2. Then there are many ways to login to the network again. The following are some of the methods you can follow:
Method 1: Default Login Details
The basic method is to try all the default usernames and passwords from the list to authenticate.
For each router there a user manual given. You can refer to that to get all the login details like IP address, username, and password of that router. You should remember that we can use this method only if you do not change the default details.
Even then if you don’t get the details, you can get the details from the sticker which is present at the back of the router. On that sticker, you can get a lot of information to login to 192.168.1.2 IP Address.
Method 2: Resetting the Router
This is the best way of getting the login details when you forget. All you have to do is just press the pinhole button that is present at the back of the router. Keep pressing the button for about 10-15 seconds.
This will reset your router to the initial settings. Then when you enter the URL in the browser, you can log in with the default usernames and passwords list. This method erases all the usernames and passwords set by the use. And, only the default usernames and passwords will be available.
Every individual will have a desire to have his own private network. For this purpose “IANA” which is an abbreviation for Internet Assigned Numbers Authority put forward a method of assigning the private IP addresses. From this assignment, the default set of addresses ranges from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254. So you can consider the IP address “192.168.1.2” as a private IP address.
In today’s modern world not even a single work is possible without the internet. As the population is increasing the requirements for the networking world is also increasing. In the fear that the present classes that are present in the IPv4 may not be sufficient, all the international organizations put forth the IPv6 format of IP addresses.
