TIL: How to Set Network Manager Priority to Use Wired Connection Over Wi-Fi

If you use network manager on Linux and have both Wi-Fi and wired connection. You may want to prefer using a wired connection over Wi-Fi, due to stability. To do open the nm-connection-editor, if you are using Nix, you can download it from nixpkgs like usual.

Higher number means higher priority.

So for our wired connection I set the priority to 100 (it was previously -1) and then for our Wi-Fi connection I set the priority to 1.

That’s it! We should now see network manager prefer to use Ethernet over Wi-Fi.
