MacOS - Prioritize Wired Network Connection

How to change the network service order

You may want to prioritize a different network connection (such as Ethernet) when connecting. Follow these steps to change the service order (also known as port priority).

  1. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Network.
  2. Click the Action menu below the list of services, then choose Set Service Order.
  3. Drag services within the list to change their order. Your Mac will try to connect to the service at the top of the list first, then continue in descending order until a connection is successful. 
    1. We recommend keeping the Ethernet connection at the top for the most reliable connection.
  4. Click OK, then click Apply to make the updated service order active.
