How to Find Your Router Default IP Address? [Cover All Methods in 2024]

IP address stands for Internet Protocol Address. It is an identifying unique number for a particular computer or computer network. To define it more understandingly I have an example; Suppose you have to send some invitation cards to some particular relatives only not to every relative present in any city. For this, you will have to write the residential address of the relative to whom you want to send the card with their name. Otherwise, the friend who is sending that invitation may send it to any of the relatives he knows in a particular city. 

Likewise, if you don’t put the specific entry ID for reaching any internet-throwing device it may send a particular message, video, or image to every device connected to that network not just to those devices to which you want to send the data. For resolving this problem of trafficking we have an IP address.

Windows computer calls the Router’s IP through the “default gateway”. iOS devices store the Router’s IP address inside the “Router” section.
