Connecting to a router with 10.0.0.0 IP address is simple. You just need to follow the below steps.
Step 1: Open a web browser and type http://10.0.0.1 in the address bar and hit Enter.
Step 2: On the admin page type the username and password and hit Enter.

Now, as we know 10.0.0.1 is a private IP address, there might be a chance that you will either not be allowed to login or there might be certain error while you are trying to access the router. Below are a few reasons
If there is no direct connection – If you do not have a PC directly connected to the router, you might have an issue. To access 10.0.0.1 IP address connect your router to a PC via an Ethernet cable.
Incorrect IP address – There have been cases where you might be entering an incorrect IP address like 10.0.0.0.1 or something else. Just to remember, all IPv4 IP has only 4 numbers. If you have changed the default IP address and you don’t remember it, try hard-resetting the router. This would bring back the router to its factory settings.
Incorrect login credentials – You might not be able to login if you are not entering the correct username and password. In most routers the username and password is printed on the label on the reverse side. In case you do not remember the credentials, try to restore the router to factory settings.
