What is the use of address 192.168.l.254 in Router Login Configuration ?

Posted by Rahul Gandotra
192.168.l.254 is used as the default IP (internet protocol) address for several home and office broadband routers. Originally used by Linksys in the beginning, it has since then been found in use in a variety of other home networking devices such as those produced by other network device manufacturers – Netgear, Linksys, D – Link, TP – Link, Leoxsys to name a few.
Though 192.168.l.254 is the default IP address for many broadband routers and modems, it is not necessary. Many manufacturing factories set the default router access point to 192.168.l.254 in order to promote a more standardized computing environment and to make it easier for first time users to set up their networks quickly and easily.

Not all, because 192.168.l.254 is a private IPv4 address. So by convention any computer, router, modem, or some other internet device can be configured to use this IP address. However, it is not usually recommended as there are so many devices that default to that connectivity problem may arise later from multiple devices using the same network address on an interconnected network. It is also important to note that only one network device on a network can have any one IP address, so if there are multiple devices using, all but one of them should be changed to a different setting.

How can you login to 192.168.l.254 and change your settings?
