Hi guys,

So basically, my MacBooks screen is smashed and I'm using it as a router to my ps4. So it picks up the wifi and then it's a wired Ethernet connection to my PlayStation 4.

The problem is when I turn it on it connects to a different wifi that doesn't work properly. Is there a way to get it to connect to the preferred network without obviously using the screen?

Thanks guys

Jay

Do you have an adapter to hook it up to a tv or external monitor?

I'm guessing but the MacBook has used the 2 WiFi routers previously and that's why it can connect to both, can you not rename the non-preferred one from another laptop so it will default to the other especially if it's closer with a stronger signal ?

Can you not turn off the wifi that doesn't work properly, then it wouldn't try to connect to it.
