How to setup and configure your wireless router with IP address 10.0.0.1?

10.0.0.1 is a class A IP address which is reserved for private network, we can usually see this IPV4 address used by router factories as their routers’ default gateway address. Other commonly used reserved IP addresses are 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.0.1. Comparing to public IP addresses(if you are using a dial-up network, you can check your public IP at many websites) which need to be unique in the entire internet, 10.0.0.1 need to be unique in its own local area network. So it’s very convenient using this IP address to setup your own network such as company’s local network, school’s local network.

How can I setup my router with 10.0.0.1?

As mentioned above, 10.0.0.1 is used in many routers as their management IP, you can easily access your router with this IP to configure your router’s options and features. You can also setup your router’s proxy, DNS, DHCP client, wireless function, MAC address etc. The steps are as follows:

First, open your browser and enter http://10.0.0.1 at the address bar, hit enter, it will show you the management console, you need to enter username and password which is usually marked at back of the router.

Second, look through all the menus and pages, find network part, you can setup your network with dial-up/DSL method or others, enter username and password which you get from your network provider, setup DNS(8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 are provided by google).

Third, setup wireless function if this part exists. Usually select WPA or WPE to ensure your wireless router’s safety.
