Setting WIFI Network Priority in Xubuntu

I am a little disappointed to find out that Xubuntu does not allow you to change the order of wifi networks out-of-the-box.  However, there is a utility that you can install to do so, called wifi-radar. To install, just type:
sudo apt-get install wifi-radar
You can run by either typing sudo wifi-radar, or finding it in the Xubuntu program menu under “Internet” applications. You’ll be prompted for the system password if you run it the latter way.  It will allow you to drag and drop the order of your preferred wifi networks.  I had to reboot in order for the changes to take place, but it could be the case that I was just impatient and didn’t wait long enough.
