How to use 10.0.0.2 IP Address to login into Telkom & D-Link Router?

10.0.0.2 is an IP address found on many local computer networks, but mainly business networks. Business based network routers keep their default gateway address to be 10.0.0.1 while assigned 10.0.0.2 as subnet for clients. 10.0.0.2 Serves as a default gateway for login for Zoom, Edimax, Siemens, Micronet.

A subnetwork or subnet is a logical subdivision of an IP address. In a private network, to avoid any network conflict and to provide ease of communication inside a network IP address starts from 10.0.0.2

Computers and other devices supporting DHCP receive their IP address automatically from a router. The router assigns the pooled address in sequential order though, the order is not guaranteed. Thus, 10.0.0.2 is commonly assigned to the first client on a local network that connects to the router based at 10.0.0.1

Use Of 10.0.0.2 Router Login

The first feature it provides is that its admin login page enables to access the router along with Wi-fi username and password.

Other than this it allows us to make the following access:

  • IP QoS: IP Quality of Service(IPQoS) enables us to prioritize, control, and gather accounting statistics. Using IPQoS, you can provide consistent levels of service to users of your network. We can also manage traffic to avoid network congestion. So 10.0.0.2 router login allows you to set bandwidth for computers to avoid heavy load.
  • DNS and Proxy Settings: Domain Name System(DNS)is a network system of servers that translates a numeric IP address into readable, hierarchical internet address that is it converts a domain name into the machine-readable address. Proxy means the medium for connection between two endpoint devices.
  • WPS: Wifi protection system(WPS) is a network security standard to create a secure wireless home network that helps make wireless communication faster, secure and more efficient.
  • MAC Address: It provides a unique address among the hardware devices connected to each other in a network.
  • LAN, WAN & WLAN settings: It helps you configure different types of area-based networks. You can use 10.0.0.2 DNS for setting the security settings.
  • DHCP: Dynamic host configuration protocol allows the server to automatically assign a different address in a sequential manner.
  • PPPoE: Point-to-Point over Ethernet(PPPoE), it is a protocol used to establish a DSL connection to the internet.
