06-13-2010, 04:32 AM #1How do i change the default WiFi to a new one?
Ok, i am back in the UK for a week or it could be 6 months. I have had my MBP 15" since last nov and this is the first time i have been on a quick connection with it as at my home in Thailand i use 2 G dongle
I now have a quick as **** WiFi connection where i will be staying n Scotland. The default connection is still the old 2G dongle, obviously i have the key for the WiFi connection i am on.
I have got the box ticked so that i connect automatically to the WiFi in the house, but any time i close the lid and put it to sleep, then wake it up again, sometimes it asks me for the key again.
This is a very minor problem, in fact it's not even a real problem, but i am very NOT good at anything to do with computers, so i would like to both learn how to change my MBP so the WiFi i am on my default connection...................and the biggest reason i ask this question is i am very paranoid about messing about with settings as i did that with my last PC laptop and buggered it up completely and for the 3 years i had it it never worked properly because of me.
So any advice is welcome gents and ladies..........A new MacBook Pro user as of oct 09 and loving it!! Sorry for the stupid questions i am asking as i know you will have been asked them a million times before

Under System Preferences -> Network -> Select Airport from the list -> Advanced... and then in the list of Preferred networks, move them in the order you wish to use them. When trying to connect, OSX will try them first to last, depending on availability.

I like simple when it comes to computers as i am not that good with them and don't use them for much other than looking about online, downloading music, and sending Emails. That's about it.
