The network manager is started automatically, so the system SHOULD
automatically connect to the network. However, maybe you have not
enabled the "autoconnect" feature in network managers settings for your
WLAN. Please check the wireless settings: Right-Mousebutton over the
networkmanager icon on the bottom right in the panel, then "Edit
connections", select the wireless LAN and then your configured WLAN
connection, and add the checkmark for "autoconnect" there. This should
do the trick.
