bonjour bour59

right-click network icon > edit connections > edit your wifi connection
or create a new one > (add > select wi-fi > create)
and on the general tab check "Automatically connect ...."
(of course you have to provide your credentials in the other tabs)

you may have to uncheck "Automatically connect ...." for the wired connection.

network manager is the wifi package on xfce. In text mode the package will provide nmcli:

if your settings/password are saved in changes or a module, it should connect automaticly in mode 3 also..
if not, there is nmtui , a ncurses interface, easier to use than nmcli..
