The IP is sometimes used as a default local address for network routers. Some Cisco brand routers and Infinity routers supplied by Comcast commonly have as their default. This same address may be used instead by any other private network device but by convention is normally assigned to a network gateway or other kind of network server. 

What is a Gateway Address? is called a default gateway address when it represents the local side of a router or wireless access point connection to the Internet.


Client devices see this address appear in their TCP/IP network gateway settings after joining the local area network (LAN). In classful IP networks, is a Class A address with default subnet mask

How to Troubleshoot Issues with Using

Users and administrators can encounter several issues when working with

  • Incorrect device address assignment. An administrator must set up gateways with as a static IP address (so that clients can rely on the address not changing). On broadband routers, for example, this address is entered on one of the console pages, while business routers may use configuration files and command line scripts instead. Mistyping this address, or entering the address in the wrong place, results in the device not being available on
  • Gateway device unresponsive. The device correctly assigned to may suddenly stop working due to technical failures on the device or with the network itself. See also – Troubleshooting Home Network Router Problems.
  • Incorrect client address assignment: On WI-Fi networks, clients connect to the gateway through the network name (SSID), and the necessary IP address settings are applied to the client automatically. Most other networks also depend on automated client address assignment. Glitches in this process are uncommon but can cause a client's gateway settings to be corrupted or lost.
