    You successfully uploaded the image to your post, but just didn't attach it in the post afterwards from the paperclip icon.

    Hello Shawn mate the probllem has returned and it will not change the prioritty order in the command prompt see pic. Have tried three times now and just cannot get the one set as the priority I wnay so what am I doing wrong??

    Sorry mate but the pic will not attach again an I have tried the paper clip and insert image but the previous post I sent shows it working fine but that 5G_EXT still keeps creeeping back into the first priority.

    Hello again Shawn have tried it one last tiem and this tiem it worked

    I suggest posting
    1 A screenshot of the Cmd window showing the priorities being set in your command[s]
    2 A screenshot of Settings, Wifi, Manage known networks - Sort by Preferred order
    3 A screenshot of the available networks - Settings, Wifi, Show available networks [Snipping tool set to 5 secs delay is useful for this]
    4 A comment confirming that you have not manually connected to any network since running #1 [manually connecting to a WiFi network gives I priority 1].

    All the best,

    Hello Denis mate I have finally got it to work as you might see in the pic if it attaches. The problem is that it will stay that way for a while but then flips back to the 5G_EXT one which is slower even though the preferred channel is also 5G

    No mate the pic will not attach and I have tried all sorts of fixes but it just will not work.

    But in short the one I want is one that ends in _EXT3 and the one that butts in is named _5GEXT. As I said both are running at 5Ghz it is just for some reason the two are reversed somehow. The properties of the _EXT is 400/400 mbs and the _5GEXT is 1200/400mbs although the latter is slower on download speeds.

    You haven't said what stops you posting diagrams. This?

    If you do see this, are you using IE?
    - Try Firefox or anything else.
    - Even in IE, if you see that blank dialog then clicking on the Go advanced button should work.
