Cannot ping devices running on a different physical address


I kind of get the feeling that I am missing something, but I wanted to use this service so that my friends and I could play LAN games during quarantine, and am currently testing it out. However, after connecting with an iPad, a phone, and a computer, I pinged both the iPad and phone from the computer while they had the same physical address. I then turned off my WiFi on my phone and connected to mobile data to change its physical address, and my computer was unable to ping my phone as the command prompt either returned “Request timed out” or “Destination host unreachable”. Is there anything I’m missing? Thanks.
