Network Information – 192.168.100.1
The existing Network within the access point located at 192.168.l00.1 contains some main characteristics, which consist of the basic information that the user can use to configure their access to the Network.
Basic configuration 192.168.l00.1
The default configuration that the modem or router contains is the following:
- Type of IP address: Address for local use, that is, it must be used within a Local Area Network (LAN).
- Well-known brands: Some of the best-known brands to be used as a router or modem for 192.168.l00.1, are the following: Arris, Motorola, Ubee, Lenovo, Askey, SmartRG.
- Usernames: To access the modem at 192.168.100.1, you could require one of the following usernames: admin, user, root.
- Common passwords: Some common passwords for the user names shown in the previous point are: password, admin, motorola, root and user.
This section concentrates the technical information of the Network, which serves as a gateway between the Internet and the local area network LAN. For this we show the definition of the main concepts and the pertinent information for the administration of the Network.
- Address range: It is the space of assignable IP addresses for devices within the same Local Area Network, these devices contain a unique address, which allows the router to know the destination of the packet, that is, to which device it should be sent.
- In particular, the Local Area Network concentrates a range of IP addresses that goes from 192.168.100.0 to 192.168. 100.254, which are addresses that can be assigned to each of the devices, except the access point address 192.168.l00.1 and the broadcast address.
- Broadcast address: Also known as the retransmission address, it is the address used to transmit the communication of the packets as a request for all the devices on the network.
- This means that all devices receive a request for who it is and the address of the destination device within the packet frame, and if the destination matches any of the devices, packets are transferred to this device through the router.
- The router address is normally 192.168.100.255, and this address should not be confused with that of the Gateway.
- Gateway address: The gateway, also known as a gateway, is a device that is responsible for managing incoming and outgoing network traffic. The default is 192.168.100.1 for the network in question.
- In terms of additional functionalities presented by access points or gateways, they allow controlling or filtering network traffic, adding devices to a secure area, monitoring the QoS (quality of service) of the network, as well as any other configuration within the local network.
- Host address: A host is any device that contains a network card and is connected to the local network. Regardless of whether it is a wired or wireless network card, it contains an IP address, which allows it to communicate with the access point and other hosts, that is, other devices on the same network.
192.168.l00.1 and other common spelling mistakes
Spelling errors usually occur when users do not have sufficient context about the meaning of an IP address, that is, they tend to confuse objects with even non-numeric values.
Some of the most common errors are: 192.168.l00.l, 192.168.100, 192.168.l00, 192.168.1001, 192.168.100. and 192.168.1, of which if the query is made through a search engine, satisfactory results are usually received, however the concept is not correct about what an IP address is.
The identification of an IP address is shown as a set of four octets, which consist of values ranging from zero to 255, where the values used for hosts and access points are those contained between zero and 254 .
However, there are various classes of addresses, which in short are called public addresses and addresses for local use, therefore not all IP addresses can be assigned to a device, as well as reserved IP addresses according to the standards established by the IETF.
This section concentrates on the most common problems to enter the administrator panel, however there are a number of possible problems that can occur AND are outside the scope of this section.
No connection to 192.168.l00.1
This is one of the most common access problems, and its causes can be very varied, of which below we will show some of the most common causes why you could not access the access point, and even the Internet.
Physical network failures
- Physical user failures: these are those failures that are normally caused by human errors in the connection or configuration of the router, or of the device to connect to the Network. The path followed by the devices is as follows:
- Connection error to the access point: If you are connected by cable, you must verify that both sides of the cable are correctly connected to the device and the router, if you are connected by wireless, see that it is connected within the same network of 192.168.100.1
- Device connection error: It occurs specifically when the device is not connected to the Internet, usually it is a power failure, or a breakdown in the Network card.
- Temporary physical failures: These are those that occur when the device and the access point are correctly connected, however the Internet connection is defective due to a failure outside the internal installation of the Network.
- Some of the temporary physical failures are resolved by a technician who will surely be working on the installation of telephone wiring, outside of your network.
- Sometimes the technician will not show up, since the problem is with the relay station and the problem will be fixed remotely.
- In either case, it may be necessary to report the problem by phone so that they can follow up and generate a report ticket.
- Definitive physical failures: When the modem or the Network card stops working, it is necessary to replace them in order to reestablish the connection to the Network. Normally the behavior of the modem is abnormal and a technician will be able to help you identify it and replace the defective device in 192.168 .l00.1
Network configuration failures
The configuration of a Network consists of certain parameters that allow the Network packets to be sent and transmitted in the normal way between the access point and the devices, however sometimes the configuration parameters can affect this behavior.
If your 192.168.100.1 access point does not have access to the network, and the physical connection is stable, you may need to check the network settings.
Configuration failures may be that the access point has the device’s IP address filtered or blocked by a firewall, or that it is misconfigured or out of range.
IP address range for 192.168.l00.1
The range of IP addresses consists of the IP addresses that can be assigned to devices located within the Network. The range of addresses for your modem or router is as follows:
192.168.100.0 – 192.168.100.255
This means that all the IP addresses of your devices must be in that range so that they can be recognized by the access point and can receive packets within the local network 192.168.l00.1
IP address assignment for 192.168.100.1
There are two mechanisms for assigning IP addresses: dynamically (DHCP) or static, which we will show in this section.
The simplest way to assign the IP address to any device is using DHCP, a mechanism that you can activate from the Network options from the Windows or Mac operating system.
If you want to disable an aesthetic address, or you are using Linux, we recommend using command line mode using the following commands:
With the iproute2 command package
By default on Linux operating systems it is found in the iproute2 toolkit, where we use the IP tool in particular to assign an IP address. The command to use is the following:
ip addr add [IP address] [interface]
With the net-tools package
The nettools package offers more robust tools for managing network interfaces, one of the most popular for displaying address assignment, the ifconfig tool.
To assign an IP address, simply follow the following syntax:
ifconfig [interface] [IP address]
192.168.100.1 Modem Tools
The access point is located at 192.168.l00.1 it contains several tools that allow the monitoring and management of the local network. Some of the most used tools are those shown below and may vary from interface to manufacturer.
Modify your password
The password defined by default to enter the network can be changed to obtain a network connection from each of your devices, as well as to access the router’s administration panel.
The password change is available for all router models, since it is a configuration that can be changed by default, but not the name of the Network.
After changing your modem password, remember to update it on each of your connected devices in order to avoid Network failures caused by the password change.
The control and filtering of Network traffic for each one of your device, is another of the benefits that are provided directly from the access point, these filtering properties are rules that allow you to establish policies that allow you to improve the security of your Network, and even put parental controls on your devices.
There are other tools to filter traffic, which are normally used at the server level such as iptables and fail2ban, however the internal firewall rules of your access point are quite powerful and you should consider them your first line of defense for your local 192.168.100.1
Other tools available at 192.168.l00.1
In routers there are other tools that allow you to customize the characteristics of the network. Some of these tools could change according to the model of your modem, however you can consult the user manual to see the options available to you:
- Parental control
- Network monitoring
- Audit users
- Filtering policies
- Set connection speed
Among other options that you can check with your internet provider.
