Public and Private IP address difference

Your router has two IP addresses: one public, or external, IP address (WAN) that faces the outside world, and a private/ local, IP address (LAN) used in your home network.

The private, or local IP address, which is also known as the Gateway IP address is used by devices in your home network to access the internet. It is also the IP address you need to know if you want to access your router settings. For this, you just need to enter it in a browser’s address bar on any device connected to the network, log in, and start setting up your router.
