Used to access the control panel of any Wi-Fi router, access point, wireless bridge, repeater or extender.
Our home routers work in a particular network range. Hence if you check the IP on your laptop which is connected to your Wi-Fi network it will be something like
IPV4 address 192.168.1.x.
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 192.168.1.1
Here the default gateway is the IP address of your main Wi-Fi router, note it down.
For devices like access point, bridges, repeaters and extenders read the label printed on the device to get the device IP address or refer the manual.
If your main router and the access point are in a different network range you will have to assign a Static IP to your PC and get access to the control panel.
