With any Macbook, Macbook Pro or Macbook Air, you can connect to various wireless networks. These networks are added to a list of “Preferred Networks” in your computer’s Network settings.

The order in which the networks appear in this list determines their priority (which network will be connected to first). For the best performance and security while working on UNCG campus, you should configure your Preferred Networks list such that the UNCG-GCN-FacStaff network has the highest priority.

For instructions on how to set the priority in the Preferred Networks list, please see Setting Mac WiFi Network Priority (Faculty and Staff Only).

Note: These instructions apply to university-owned Macbooks that connect to the General Computing Network (GCN) domain.
