Change Connection Priority of Wireless Networks in Windows 8 and 8.1 ..
Windows usually connects to networks in this priority order:
Ethernet
1.Wi-Fi (wireless)
2. Mobile broadband
3.
When you connect to a new Wi-Fi network, it’s added to the list, and Windows will connect to that network
while it’s 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 net- work
when there is a Wi-Fi network in range, the mobile broadband network is preferred just for that ses- sion.
The next time you’re in range of both networks, the Wi-Fi network is preferred. This is because mo- bile
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 won’t automatically connect to that Wi-Fi
network.
