Router factories use 10.0.0.1 as a class A IP address for the default gateway of their routers. In its local area network, this address must be unique. There cannot be more than one device with the IP address of 10.0.0.1. It can be used for setting up your own network and it is also occasionally utilised as the default local address for some network routers.
What is 10.0.0.1 For?
When a wireless access point connects to the internet, the IP address of 10.0.0.1 is the local side of the connection. This particular address appears in the TCP/IP network gateway settings upon a client device joining a local area network (LAN). If you wish to know if a device on your local network is using 10.0.0.1, you can use the ping utility.
Setting up Your Router Using 10.0.0.1
Setting up your router to use 10.0.0.1 is easy. The most important step is firstly logging into your router's admin panel. Let's follow these steps:
Enter the username and password from your network provider
The DNS is 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52., as provided by Google.
You should also set up your router's wireless function, if applicable, making sure to choose a good encryption method such as WPE or WPA
Potential Issues with 10.0.0.1
You may encounter some issues when using 10.0.0.1, including an unresponsive gateway device or a device address assignment problem. For the latter issue, you have to establish a static IP address for gateways with 10.0.0.1. The gateway device problem is likely down to technical failures. Another issue is incorrect client address assignment. This happens on Wi-Fi networks where network names and IP address settings are given to clients automatically. The automated nature causes these glitches. Although they are rare, they can cause gateway setting corruption.
