Wifi Preferences for iOS

Image
WIFI is a great thing.  iPads, iPhones and iPods all love WIFI.  But, these devices will often stray from your WIFI.  I live in an apartment building, and most of my neighbors have unprotected WIFI.  My iPod Touch will often connect to their network, and I need to switch to my network.

Most computers will allow you to set a preference as to which WIFI to connect to first, second, third and so forth.  But in iOS, not so much.  Unfortunately, this cannot be done on the device.  Here are some quick tips as to how to set up a preference for this on an iOS device.
What do you need? A Mac or PCiPhone Configuration Utility for that computer (MAC , PC)iPad / iPhone / iPod cable for your device.
All of these steps are done in iPhone Configuration Utility.  Other applications that support this procedure include Apple Configurator and Jamf's Casper Suite.  The other applications may look a bit different, but essentially are the same settings.
