I recently reset the modem in our house, and since then my late 2011 MacBook Pro hasn't been connecting to the network automatically like it was before. Every time I start my laptop, either from sleep or restart, the list of networks pops up, and then a notification pops up over that saying it could connect to my home network.

The router is a piece of garbage, I'll be replacing it soon, but how do I fix this issue with my laptop? How do I get it to automatically connect to my home network without having to manually choose for it to do so?

go System Pref: Network > (choose Wi-Fi on the left), then Advanced.

manual add (+) your wifi network and check "remember this networks...."
