Just imagine you are running a small business centre where you would like to give printer access to all employees. This is possible by giving a public IP to make them reach from the Internet. But, this is not advisable because of severe security risks.
In such a serious case, you may provide a Private IP to the printer, so that devices connected with a similar network can reach the printer. The web interface of the routers makes it the user easy in changing settings, IP addresses say, 192.168.0.0, 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1.
