After I have changed a router to Linksys EA 6200 my MacBook Air starts having an issue to keep my privet WiFi after re-open this computer. I have no issues with MacBook Pro. So, every time MacBook Air re-open, I have to manually select this WiFi. Or computer select a Linksys WiFi as default.

Click on your Wi-Fi icon in the menubar up top, select Open Network Preferences.

Select Wi-Fi on the left, then click on Advanced on the bottom right.

In the tab labeled Wi-Fi, do you see multiple "Preferred Networks"? Drag the one you want to be the default to the top.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Hi, thank you for reply. I have tried this before, even deleted Linksys of networks. Added new Location, but what now happen, when I open computer to start, the small window pup with all networks for selection. Another word, before computer select Linksys network and I had to change, now its pup as a small window with all networks available. Computer doesn't select network by it self.

Did you deselect the option to "Ask to join new networks"? If not, do so. Then delete everything from your list except your preferred one.
