Solved No "Manage Wireless Networks" (order/prioritize wireless networks?)

Hi,

I was wondering if, in Windows 8, there's a way to configurity the priority/order of wireless networks? In Windows 7, it use to be under "Manage wireless networks", but I can't seem to find it in Win8. I have two wireless networks in my home, and Win8 always seems to pick the one with the weaker signal (farthest away).

Thanks,
Jim

Thanks for pointing this out Jim, I can't imagine why Windows left out the option to Manage Wireless Networks in Windows 8 CP but it has been discussed here before. http://www.eightforums.com/network-sharing/5680-wireless-manager-pain-my-tookus.html

We can only hope they remember to put the UI for this very useful option back into Windows 8 RTM. :sarc:
