default IP

(redirected from default IP address)

default IP

The IP address assigned to a computer by the network or an IP address assigned to a network device by the vendor of the product. Computers in a local network are assigned IP addresses within a range of internal addresses set aside for such purposes (see DHCP and private IP address).

Network devices are set to a single default IP address; for example, Linksys routers are typically assigned an IP address of 192.168.1.1. The default address is left intact by most users, but can be changed to suit a more complex network architecture. See default gateway and IP address.
