Thank you for your reply, but surely the fact that I will need a cron job to 
fix a problem that never existed before NetworkManager implies that there is 
a problem with NetworkManager

Do you have any suggestions as to what the conjob should contain, presumably a 
sequence of nmcli commands.

I haven't used nmcli yet, only nmtui. The problem i have is that when I have 
problems with the WIFI, the connection disappears from nmtui.
