So I have not noticed this before but this evening when running some code on the app player I noticed that it was reporting its IP address in a BOGON IP range.



The true IP address of the Android Pixel 4a phone is in the 192.168.86.x range and the AppGameKit debugger finds it fine at its true address address.
I killed the AppGameKit player app and started it again. Same result.

So where is this BOGON address coming from, and why does the AppGameKit code report this in the player screen and also in AppGameKit code via GetDeviceIP() ?

App player version: Jun 27 2022

after a restart of the phone it is now showing the correct IP.
Yesterday I did join the wifi at a store, but it is still a mystery as to why it reported an incorrect IP address.

AGK will return the first address that it finds, it looks like that one is used by carrier networks, so it probably found the mobile data network before the WiFi network
