Closing as not a bug. The way the Internet is currently architected means not all combinations of connections will work. It's not to do with Construct or its Multiplayer feature. I have previously successfully connected wifi <-> 4G devices, but whether or not it works depends on the specific network configuration along the route between the devices.
