whenever my computer (which is a MacBook Pro bought in 2012) is sleeping or off, and i login with my password, it is always on a different wifi then my home wifi. My home wifi is Skritty, and the wifi my computer is always on is BronzeMaple-Guest. I just waited 10 minutes for a software update and when it turned on, it went to the BronzeMaple-Guest login website and it totally lost my software update. I was trying to play MineCraft and had to update Java so i could play it. IF YOU HELP I WILL BE VERY THANKFUL!

sincerely, Braden

Click on "advanced" in the Wi-Fi settings then, in the list under "preferred networks," you can rearrange the order of priority as to which networks you'd prefer to connect to if possible

    Just in case, the wifi settings are in System Preferences > Network.

This happens to me a lot. The problem is that there wifi is public so when you wake your computer it connects to the public wifi first. You can edit the wifi-settings and can even block this wifi connection if you want in Network settings.
