I only use Gnome so I'm not 100% on how to get an applet form of NetworkManager in XFCE. But as far as i know this should work:
su -
/sbin/service NetworkManager start
/sbin/service NetworkManagerDispatcher start

go to xfce menu->settings->Autostarted Applications then add nm-applet to the list. I also think, just running nm-applet from run program menu will remember it everytime you login. Well, it's up to you
