This IP address 192.168.l.2 is commonly known as the misspelling of the original popular IP address 192.168.l.2 router login. The original version of the IP address is 192.168.1.2 and it is very popularly used among the routers as their default gateway address. The default gateway IP address is what we use to login to the router or the modem to configure their settings and change the settings as per our wish.
Not only modems and routers, but every networking device that is connected to a network will definitely have the IP address for their own use. The default IP assigned to them is popularly known as the default gateway address. The IP address assigned to the router is not a public IP address they are known as the private IP address.
Public IP addresses are used by every device that is connected to the internet. For example, if a modem needs to connect to the internet then it must have a public IP address. Only if it has a public IP address it can connect to the internet. Else the device cannot be identified in the vast network. The public IP address is just like a unique identifier given to the host that is connected to the internet.
If any of the hosts in the network needs to send a message to our host then it needs to wrap the IP address of our host in the data packet and send it to the host. The routers are the devices that route the data packets between the routers and they route the data packets based on the IP address that is written on the top of the data packet. Thus the IP address is important for every host.
All the hosts that are connected in a network but not connected to the internet must also have an IP address. This address is called the private IP address. The private IP address is formed to prevent the over usage of the public IP address for the use of private networking. Since this IP address used for the private networking will not be known to the public. So these IPs can be the same for the hosts in many private networks. This IP address 192.168.l.2 is one such IP that is used inside the private networks.
This 192.168.l.2 comes under the private IP address range 192.168.1.1-192.168.254.254 range. In this range, you can connect any number of devices with any combination. You can give a particular IP number for the device you like. You can also allocate the IP for your modem, router, or any other device that you connect to the private network. By allocating this private address the over usage of the private IP address is prevented and the public IP is saved.
Even though the council has taken steps to ensure the reduced use of the IPv4 IP address but still the increase of the device population will make them exhausted in the near future. This new alternative must be formed in order to prevent the possible IP shortage. Thus the IPv6 is formed. The IPv6 numbers are too much in the count and it will really take a long time to exhaust this rate. Also, many major companies have started to switch over to the IPv6 format and all the other companies have started following the same trend.

Also whatever be the network model any device that is connected to it will have an IP address. There are two major types of network models they are peer to peer model and the client-server model.
In the peer-to-peer model, every computer acts as a host and there will no network problem if any of the hosts gets removed or switched off. But in the client-server model, the server is the important component of the network and if it gets off then there might be a blackout.
