    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

    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.

    Putting out the fire with gasoline...
    Beg or borrow an external display or use a TV over HDMI and remove the offending WiFi network. System Preferences - Network - WiFi - Advanced highlight and hit the minus key. Or you can just set the priority.
