Is a global IP normal to have on a VM router?

Hi, I’m not really in the know with IP’s and how they should work.

I did a speed test on my Nintendo switch and it displayed a global IP address. Is that normal ? There is no vpn on.

You need a public IP to access the internet, if that's what you mean?

The below site should return the same IP you saw on your switch:

Hi there BlueMonday5000,

Thanks for your post and welcome back to the community.

Apologies for any issues faced, just to clarify on this is that the only device that you've discovered this on?

Regards,

Kain
