MacOSX - Define a default wireless network

October 2016


To be able to connect mt Mac to my wireless network, I always have to go through the network configuration, enter the password and restart the Mac. Is there any way to define the default wireless network.


  • System Preferences> Network> Airport> Advanced> Airport. Drag your wireless network above all others. Your mac will now try to connect to the first network.
  • Double-click on your wireless network. Check if the password is correct then check "Remember this network".
