So I won’t forget: IPv4 private networks 10/8 (10.x.y.z), 172/12 (172.16-31.y.z), 192.168/16 (192.168.y.z) and 169.254/16 (169.254.y.z) (via: Private network – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

So I won’t forget: below are IPv4 private network ranges that you can use behind your router.

Private networks:

  • 10/8
  • 172/12
  • 192.168/16

Link-local network:

  • 169.254/16

Network you should not configure yourself:

I tried finding statistics on the actual use of private networks, but couldn’t.

This is from my own experience:

  • Link-local is used when DHCP is not available.
  • Lot’s of routers use 10.0.0.x,,
  • VMWare Workstation and VMWare Fusnion use 192.168.x.y.
