Below you can find all lookup results for private IP address 172.16.1.1. If you are trying to find the login for your router, modem or wireless access point, you can access it by clicking the following link for http or https. The most used default username and password is 'admin' or 'setup' and in case of a TP Link, Netgear or D-Link wireless router, you can also find the default settings on the back of the device. If this doesn't work, then you could choose to reset the router. To do this you need to press and hold it's reset button for approximately 10 seconds. This will restore the factory settings and enables you to log in with the details specified on the sticker.
IP address 172.16.1.1 is registered by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) as a
private network 172.16.1.0/24. IP addresses in the private space are not
to any specific organization, including your ISP (Internet Service Provider), and anybody
these IP addresses without the consent of a regional Internet registry as described in RFC
unlike public IP addresses.
However, IP packets addressed from a private range cannot be send through the public Internet, and so if such a private network needs to connect to the Internet, it has to be done through a network address translator (also called NAT) gateway, or a proxy server.
An example of a NAT gateway would be a wired or wireless router you receive from a broadband provider. The fixed IP address of such a device in network range 172.16.1.0/24 would generally be 172.16.1.1 or 172.16.1.254 depending on the provider. A gateway webinterface should be available through the HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) and/or HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) protocols. To try this you should enter 'http://ip address' or 'https://ip address' in the address bar of your favorite web browser like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox and log in with the username and password provided by your provider.
You can use these types of (private network) IP addresses in your local network and assign it to your devices such as a personal computer, laptop, tablet and/or smartphone. It is also possible to configure a range within a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server to do the IP assigning automaticly.
