Windows usually connects to networks in this order:
- Mobile broadband
When you connect to a new Wi‑Fi network, itís added to the list, and Windows will connect to that network while itís in range. If you connect to another Wi‑Fi network while in range of the first network, Windows will prefer the second network over the first one.
Mobile broadband networks are treated differently. If you manually connect to a mobile broadband network when there is a Wi‑Fi network in range, the mobile broadband network is preferred just for that session. The next time youíre in range of both networks, the Wi‑Fi network is preferred. This is because mobile broadband networks typically are metered.
If you want to force your PC to prefer a mobile broadband network over Wi‑Fi, tap or click the Wi‑Fi network in the list of networks, and then click Disconnect
. Windows wonít automatically connect to that Wi‑Fi network.
