Manage Wi-Fi networks

If you have multiple networks saved on your Chromebook, you can choose which wireless network the device should connect to by default.

By default, your Chromebook tries to connect to networks in this order of preference:

  • Wired local area network
  • Secure wireless network
  • Unsecure wireless network
  • Mobile data network (only used if your Chromebook has a data plan)
