What is 10.0.0.1?
The 10.0.0.1 IP address belongs to the 24-bit block of private IP address, which are used for local area networks (LANs) and it can be used more than once. It is not possible to route private IP addresses as we can do for the public IP address, through the internet.
Network administrators and internet providers have been relying on various methods of remapping one IP address space into another and using private IP addresses such as 10.0.0.1 as substitutes for public IP addresses. Eventually, the IPv4 communications protocol will be entirely replaced by its successor, Internet Protocol Version 6, or IPv6 for short, but that will take some time. Currently, only about 25 percent of internet traffic happens through IPv6.
10.0.0.1 is an IP address of Xfinity router IP. This IP address comes under private Class A IP address range and is decided by the IETF and IANA. It is the default gateway address for Xfinity router admin settings. Apart from 10.0.0.1, there are other IP addresses like 192.168.1.1, 192.168.0.1, 10.0.0.0.1, and 10.1.10.1 that routers use as their default gateway.
