I have set up multiple Wi-Fi networks on my Mac. But the one that's most trusted is always my first choice. Only if it's not working, I go for other networks. Changing Wi-Fi network preference settings on Mac is quite simple and you can choose which Wi-Fi network your macOS device connects first!
So, if you like a particular network or find it more reliable, you can put it at the top of the Wi-Fi network list. Your Mac will automatically connect to it. But when this network is not working, your computer will connect to the second network on the list.
How to Change Wi-Fi Network Preference Settings On Your Mac
Step #1. First off, click on the Wi-Fi icon from the menu bar on your Mac.
Step #2. Now, click on Open Network Preferences.
Step #3. On the Network Settings page, you need to click on the Advanced.
Step #4. Next, you should see a list of Wi-Fi networks under Wi-Fi tab. They are the ones you have used on your macOS or iOS devices. To put the Wi-Fi networks as per your preference, simply click on a network and move it up or down in the desired order.
Hence, the most preferred Wi-Fi will appear at the top spot on this list.
After you have perfectly rearranged the networks, click on OK button to confirm.
