Ubuntu – How to manage available wireless network priority


I'd like to move up and down available wireless access points, setting priorities as we can do in Microsoft Windows. I can't remember to have ever succeeded in this since using network-manager. Maybe something with conf files is possible…

I'm not interested in different network managers.

WiFi Radar is a Python/PyGTK2 utility for managing WiFi profiles. It enables you to scan for available networks and create profiles for your preferred networks. At boot time, running WiFi Radar will automatically scan for an available preferred network and connect to it. You can drag and drop your preferred networks to arrange the profile priority. 1

Install WiFi Radar, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

sudo apt install wifi-radar

To run it,

sudo wifi-radar

WiFi Radar has a new version 2.0 it can be downloaded from their website. Or download it from Here
