How can I disable built-in wifi and use external USB wifi adapter with balenafin?

My device is somewhat far from the wifi access point and the buil-in wifi of the fin is not enough. I have attached an external USB wifi adapter that’s detected as wlan0 on host os, and the built-in wifi of fin is detected as wlan1. The network connection that’s created by network manager uses wlan1. I want to use the usb wifi adapter wlan0 for connecting to the wifi network and disable/ignore the built-in wifi module of the balena fin. Thanks for reading.

You’ll need to force NetworkManager’s hand to use wlan0 by specifying the interface name in its config. There is extensive documentation in our docs site:
