Private IP Address
In case IP address is private we mean that you can only access it from your home PC only. It can’t be accessed from the internet or another PC which is not part of your private network. Additionally, inside one private network this IP can exist only once. And every network can use this IP address. However, few instances for some reason two devices get the same IP address in the same network. It will become unstable and a so-called IP conflict will occur. You shall solve as soon as possible by assigning a different IP address to one of the devices with this IP.
Default IP Address
Most router manufacturers today use IP addresses from the private IP range as default IP addresses for their routers. The so called default IP address is assigned to all routers in the factory and along with the default username and password it makes it easy for the end user to setup the router or work on the security of its private home network. Since the IP and login details are the same for a huge number of routers it is important to change at least the default login details in order to secure the home network.
