Once the wlan isn't available (the wlan router is out of range/the wlan router is not active) the network manager won't connect anymore to this wlan. Neither automatically nor via dbus call.

So when the WLAN isn't available, NM will retry connecting a few times
(as long as it's still in the scan list) and then will eventually fail
and mark the network as "disabled", and wait for you to manually
reconnect.  We added a feature in 0.9 to clear that tag after a few
minutes.  It would be a bit hard to backport to 0.8.x but could be done
if somebody had time.
