How do I change a particular adapter’s priority in Windows?

Changing the priority of a particular adapter in Windows is a relatively simple process and can be completed in a few easy steps.

1. Open the Network Connections window
a. Click the Start menu and type “Network Connections” into the search box.
b. Select the Network Connections option when it appears.

2. Right-click on the adapter you want to change the priority of and select Properties.

3. In the Properties window, select the “Advanced” tab.

4. Under the Advanced tab, select the “Priority & VLAN” option.

5. Under the Priority & VLAN section, select the Adapter you’d like to change the priority of from the list of available adapters.

6. Once you’ve selected the adapter, use the drop-down box to choose the priority level you’d like to assign.

7. The priority levels range from Lowest (1) to Highest (2000).

8. Click OK once you’ve selected the priority level you’d like to assign.

9. Your selected adapter should now have the priority level you assigned.

It’s important to note that you can only change the priority level of one adapter at a time, so if you have multiple adapters connected to your system, you’ll need to go through this process for each adapter. Additionally, it’s also important to note that if you don’t assign any priority level to a particular adapter, then it will default to the lowest priority (1).

If you’re having difficulty changing the priority level of a particular adapter, make sure you’re logged in as an administrator. If that doesn’t help, try disabling and re-enabling the adapter. You can do this by right-clicking on the adapter in the Network Connections window and selecting the ‘Disable’ option. After a few seconds, re-enable the adapter by selecting the ‘Enable’ option.

It’s also important to note that changing the priority level of an adapter may not always have the desired effect. It depends on what type of network connection you’re using, how many adapters are connected to your system, and how busy your network is. It’s best to experiment with different priority levels to see which one gives the best results.

Finally, if you find that some applications or processes are still having trouble connecting to the internet, you may need to adjust various settings related to those applications or processes. This may include increasing the bandwidth allocated to them, adjusting the timeouts associated with them, or making other tweaks.
