macOS Sierra: Change the order of the network ports your computer uses to connect

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/15

Very useful when you want to give your WiFi less priority than an USB or Thunderbolt network adapter: [WayBack] macOS Sierra: Change the order of the network ports your computer uses to connect.

It is not just that the topmost adapter gets more priority: it also determines the DNS search!

Anyway: after choosing “Set Service Order” on the right, choose the order as seen below.

PS: Since Apple is cleaning up their site, only the above WayBack works, but luckily the below link explains it in a very similar way when using Locations:

Why Are My Text Messages Stuck Pending | Pushbullet Help Central

Try this fix first:

For many, this issue goes away by simply reinstalling our Android app on your phone. We suggest giving this a try first.

That didn’t work, but this did:

Check that the correct device is selected in the top left of the SMS interface.

You may have an old device selected, which is preventing SMS from working correctly. Check that the correct device is selected in the drop down. You can remove old devices here.

It looks like all my old smartphones were still there despite not being a SIM card in them. Removing all but my active phone solved the problem.
