Can’t connect to 10.0.0.1
If you can’t connect to the IP address 10.0.0.1 then there must be some issues that you must be having.
- A common issue is that the device address assignment is incorrect and the gateway device is unresponsive. This occurs when the router uses any other IP address than 10.0.0.1. You can find about your router’s IP address here.
