For every system which is connected to internet has an IP address associated with it. There are basically two types of IP addresses namely public and private IP address. Whenever we need to access over internet, we need to buy a modem or router from specific service provider and then it helps us in connecting to internet. In order to enable the configuration for a specific modem, we need to enable the configuration by making changes in the default 192.168.1.254 IP address from its GUI.
There are various types of modems and routers available in the market. Generally the most general types of modems are accessible or configurable by making changes in the 192.168.1.254 IP address from its GUI. In order to make changes in the modem, you need to get the information about the router first. DHCP function is also another key component here and is disabled by default and as this is disabling we can make changes in the IP address manually as 192.168.1.X value.
It is also possible to add static IP address to your system by using below steps
In order to achieve this task, you need to enable static IP address of your system. Before you start, you need to have a static IP address on your system and ensure that there is no other device which is connected to the modems using DHCP protocol. Make sure that you have telnet configured.
Now you need to login to your modem and enter the 192.168.1.254 IP address and by connecting to the IP address using the web browser. Open your browser (such as Internet explorer or Mozilla) and then you will be able to access Modem address by using this 192.168.1.254 IP address which helps in changing or editing the configurations of modem or device. Once the browser opens the page, you need to enter administrator and password easily.
You can add the IP address in the section provided and that would be IP address in the desired form. Click on edit tab -> input the values for IP address and Mask (the address should be same as before and therefore you will be able to set static IP address. In case you wish to have DHCP configured and then plan then it would be ideal way to make changes in the default IP address or configured as per requirement. From the static IP address assignment, it is possible only for you to make changes in the modem or router configuration.
In case there is any issue related to router admin password then you will be able to connect your system. If you are suspecting any error related to this configuration or while testing then there are certain possibilities which can be done at your end.
Clearly making changes in the default 192.168.1.254 IP address is used to make changes in modem settings which you prefer to set.
