When NI-DAQmx attempts to contact a Network DAQ device, it uses addresses stored previously to connect to the device on the network.
NI-DAQmx follows this sequence to contact Network DAQ devices:
NI-DAQmx uses the IP address of the last network interface used by NI-DAQmx.
If the first IP address fails and the device has both wired and wireless network connections, NI-DAQmx attempts to use the last known IP address of the other network interface (wired or wireless).
If both known IP addresses fail, NI-DAQmx uses an address returned from a name look up of the device's hostname.
