Can’t connect to 10.0.0.1
This IP address represents the local side of a wireless access point connection to the Internet. Once the client devices join LAN (local area network), the address would appear in their TCP/IP network gateway settings. You can use the ping utility to find if any device on the local network is actively using 10.0.0.1.
Common issues are:
- Incorrect device address assignment and unresponsive gateway device. This is the case when your router uses another 192.168.l.l IP address. You can find your router’s IP gateway here.
- Incorrect client address assignment. On WI-Fi networks, clients connect to the gateway through the network name (SSID), and the necessary IP address settings are applied to the client automatically. Most other networks also depend on automated client address assignment. Glitches in this process are uncommon but can cause a client’s gateway settings to be corrupted or lost.
