192.168.0.2 is commonly used in many private local networks. For example, a WLAN router is a popular network that requires this IP to log in.
After logging the address, some people just don’t know what to do next. Don’t be worry because this topic will help. Additionally, if you forget your router login or password, you will also find the solution here.
Now let’s start!
What is 192.168.0.2
This IP is also known as LAN IP, private IP, or internal network IP. This private IP can not connect directly to the Internet. Instead of that, you have to use a network address translator (NAT) or a Proxy server to connect to the public network.
In comparison to public IP, this private one is free. The sources of this IP are saved to use in the private networks. Since it can not connect directly to the Internet, it will be more secure than a public IP.
Of course, IP 192.168.0.2 is used widely. Some places using this IP that we can tell are schools, homes, and corporate LAN. Some devices in LAN such as laptops, smartphones,… have their own IP, connecting with the public IP through a router. This router has both private IP and public IP. Accessing this router management, you can be able to change and control some settings.
