I am new on Apple world. I have a MacBook Pro mid 2014. I have an issue and don't know how to solve it.

When I am at home and turn my Mac on, it tries to connect on the first free wifi network which is a low signal one. I want to force it and connect on my home network instead. Now, I do it manually by disconnecting and connecting to the right one.

Is there any solution?

  • Could you upload a screen shot of how you connect? Is home network an WiFi network or ethernet or something else? – bmike Aug 26 '15 at 18:14
  • It proved that the answer was the right one. Didn't know that there is a preferred list and it was lower that the free one. – Tasos Aug 26 '15 at 18:22

Open up System Preferences. Click Network. After you select Wi-Fi on the left, click Advanced... . Drag your home network to the top under Preferred Networks. Click OK then Apply.
