Choosing your “preferred” network

This “how-to” guide shows you how to change the priority of the network connections you’ve previously connected to on your Mac. Changing the priority means you should always connect to your preferred network first when it’s in range!

  • Select “System Preferences”
  • Select “Network”

  • Make sure “Wi-Fi” is selected from the left-hand side menu as pictured below

  • Click the “Advanced” button the bottom right as shown above
  • In the new window, you will see a list of all of the connections your Mac has connected to
  • Select your preferred network and drag it to the top of the list
    • As per our image below currently “Test Wifi” is the most preferred network

  • Once complete click “OK”
  • Make sure to click “apply” otherwise these changes won’t take effect
