- # Set wi-fi connection priorities
- To list current priorities
- $ nmcli -f autoconnect-priority,name c
- AUTOCONNECT-PRIORITY NAME
- 0 Blake5Net
- 0 Caffe Ubuntu
- 0 Caffe Ubuntu Guest
- 0 Fire Hotspot
- 0 JET & Mishka
- 0 La Marzocco
- 0 Le_MX
- 0 MobileLab
- 0 xfinitywifi
- Tip: If you have a very long list, you may want to sort them by priority:
- nmcli -f autoconnect-priority,name c | tail -n +2 | sort -nr
- #### How to set a network as preferred
- nmcli connection modify "Caffe Ubuntu" connection.autoconnect-priority 10
- #### Note that you can use any number you want for the priority. A larger number moves the network to the top of the list.
- How to set a network as a last resort
- nmcli connection modify "xfinitywifi" connection.autoconnect-priority -10
- Negative priority values are lower than the default of 0, which means they will be tried last, if no other known WiFi network can be found. Note that, due to a bug in some versions of nmcli, you may see negative numbers listed as huge positive numbers like 4294967286. Don't worry about this as it will still work fine.
