To access or configure Network devices, we normally use our laptop or Desktop Computer. And to do that we need to make sure the IP address of the computer is under the same Subnet as the Network device.
For an example:
If an internet router is on IP address "192.168.0.1". The computer need to be on "192.168.0.XX" (X could be any number from 2-254)
To access WiFi AP which has default IP address of "192.168.1.222", we can set the computer on "192.168.1.2"
Below is the step by step instruction on how to change the IP address for Windows 10 computer.
