I have two named Ethernet settings in my Network Connections: one for normal Internet access, one for lab work where everything is static IP addresses. I would like the Internet settings to be "default", but in fact every time I log in, the static IP settings are selected and I have to manually choose the other one. How do I choose which one to be the default?


In terminal, type nm-connection-editor, and select the desired primary ethernet connection profile, and set the priority to 1...

  • Sorry for the delay. My system's nm-connection-editor does not present the priority option. I compromised by turning off the "Connect automatically" option on the other network. – RadlyEel Jul 9 '19 at 21:49
  • @RadlyEel what version Ubuntu? – heynnema Jul 10 '19 at 0:46
