When I'm at a specific location, I want my MBP to connect to only one specific WiFi connection available. Too many times it "automatically" connects to garbage WiFi signals like "xfinitywifi" or "CableWifi" that are nearby, and I always have to manually set the connection to the one I really want to use. Is there a way to limit a macos WiFi connection to a specific WiFi signal?
Source: Here's how to forget a wifi location so that you don't auto-connect to it when in range.
- Click the Wi-Fi icon toward the upper right of your screen in the menu bar. It looks like a pizza slice.
- Click on Open Network Preferences.
- Click the Advanced button.
- Click the Wi-Fi tab.
- Select the network(s) you'd like your Mac to forget.
- Click on the minus (-) button.
- Click on the OK button.
- Click on the Apply button.
