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 2.1. Configuring NetworkManager to Connect to a Network Automatically When Detected
  1. Press the Super key to enter the Activities Overview, type control network and then press Enter. The Network settings tool appears.
  2. Select the type of connection from the left-hand-side menu.
  3. Click on gear wheel icon in the lower right hand side corner. The Network details window appears.
  4. Select the Identity menu entry on the left. The Network window changes to the identity view.
  5. Select Connect automatically to cause NetworkManager to auto-connect to the connection whenever NetworkManager detects that it is available.

If the box is unselected, you will have to select that connection manually in the network applet menu to cause it to connect.
