I have an external wireless adapter TP-LINK TL-WN722N and have set it up. Now, it automatically connects to my WiFi network. I want to use the WiFi adapter that is built-in in my laptop and connect through it to my wifi network and not through the external adapter. Any help would be appreciated!

Note: I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

  • Well, I think it was kind of easy. I managed to change that from the upper toolbar where I could choose with which adapter to connect to a network. Apr 24, 2017 at 14:43

Go to the Network icon in the top panel and choose Edit Connections. Edit the wireless network profile of your choosing. Find the Device field, and select the popup, and choose the desired wireless adapter desired for that connection.
