Please check your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX (where X
is your wireless card) and look for
"ONBOOT=yes". If that is present, then you likely get automatic
connected to the WLAN. Change it to "no" and you are able to active
wifi only if you wish by choosing the the preferred wifi network at
the NM icon. Please also check if you wired connection is also set to
onboot=yes, if not, no interface get started unless you active it
manual.
