6.2.3. Connecting to a Network Automatically

For any connection type you add or configure, you can choose whether you want NetworkManager to try to connect to that network automatically when it is available.
Procedure 6.1. Configuring NetworkManager to Connect to a Network Automatically When Detected
  1. Click on the NetworkManager applet icon in the Notification Area.
  2. Click Network Settings.
    The Network window appears.
  3. Select the type of connection from the left-hand-side menu.
  4. Click on Configure
  5. Select Connect automatically to cause NetworkManager to auto-connect to the connection whenever NetworkManager detects that it is available. Unselect the checkbox if you do not want NetworkManager to connect automatically. If the box is unchecked, you will have to select that connection manually in the NetworkManager applet's initial menu to cause it to connect.
