192.168.0.0 is the starting point of the reserved private network space that encompasses all IP addresses through the 192.168.0.0-192.168.255.255 range. It refers to the IPv4 version of IP addresses and is the block name of the class C block which contains around 65,000 addresses. Being the starting IP, the 192.168.0.0 address can not be used by mobile devices or computers or other small networks segments.

192.168.0.0 is not used by mobile or computer devices because it is the starting IP of the C block and starting address is used for network identification, similarly, the last value (192.168.0.0) is assigned to broadcast traffic thus it also cannot be used by devices.

11000000 10101000 00000000 00000000 is the actual form of the address which computer interacts to which is converted to readable by dotted decimal notation. 

Being a private IPv4 network, it hinders external routings and ping tests although it can be used in routing tables and by routers to share network information with each other.

There are several other addresses that could be used in the place of 192.168.0.0, the choice depends on the network user’s convention. Following are the block ranges reserved by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (the organization that oversees global IP address allocation, autonomous system number allocation, root zone management in the Domain etc) for IP addressing: 

Block A: 10.0.0.0 – 10.255.255.255
Block B: 172.16.0.0 – 172.31.255.255
Block C: 192.168.0.0 – 192.168.255.255

Any one of the following can be put up to install the network. 

The home routers are generally set up using the 192.168.1.0 network rather than 192.168.0.0, resulting the possibility of router having a private IP address of 192.168.1.1
