What is the default gateway?
Default gateway, usually when you are querying on your home appliances, pages, and content on the Internet, is the use of a router. Internal IP address, PC, Laptop, Tablet and Phone
The gateway then handles the forwarding of requests in the correct place.
What is NAT (Network Address Translation)
Many computers and devices can connect to the internet through internet modem and globally have limited IPv4 addresses, modems or routers will translate all packets in the right place.
In practice this means that the external supervisor uses every device with the same IP address in your network, while the home network has different local IP addresses.
What is a Private IP Address?
Your router or modem does not just have a public IP address, but is also a private IP address or internal IP address that communicates with devices over a local network.
Modem or router will usually map the first IP in the subnet, e.g. Such as 192.168.16.1, 19.2168.1.1 or others. The remaining devices attached to the home network receive an IP address with router or modem DHCP, which handles home network addresses.
Is the number of public IP addresses limited?
Yes and no, the IPv4 address is a limited size, so there may be few addresses around the world. Although this number is very large, the growing demand for new IP addresses is causing defects due to the fast development of the Internet.
In order to meet this increased demand, a new version of the IP address was introduced, the IPv6 was introduced. One of the main features of this release supports large numbers of addresses compared to traditional IPv4.
Can I change the public IP address of my router?
If you have a dynamic IP address plan, disconnect your router and get a new address when reconnecting. When your router connects to the ISP, it will give you a new address.
This is not always the case, because some ISPs re-connect to a single address once. If you use a static IP address, you must contact your Internet Service Provider to change your IP address.
Is my public IP address dangerous to passing third parties?
Your IP address is your identity on the web. It is possible to find out what your internet activity is, even if you need to access the server logs for websites.
It is also possible for anyone to find your place with your IP address. Your country or region can easily be determined by an IP address, because some countries have been assigned to some countries. In addition, it is also possible to find your specific physical address, however, this record is arranged by your internet service provider and does not usually pass third parties at that time.
Keeping in mind the above topics, you can share your public IP address whenever you can.
Why should I know my router's private IP address?
The personal address of your router is the address assigned to the private network. Devices on the network should have a conversation with the network. Generally, this is done automatically by your router, so you do not need to do anything.
However, if you want to configure it through a web interface, you need to know the router's address. You can enter an address in a web browser to open the router's web interface. There you will be asked for a username and password to access the settings.
