Keep the wired connection working while reconnection wireless

I'm using Archlinux with NetworkManager to connect to the internet. When I'm in my room, I've an ethernet cable and still receive the wireless signal.

Sometimes (like when we have a power cut, somebody is rebooting the router or simply something wrong with the provider), I'm disconnected during a few seconds, NetworkManager ask me again the password of the wireless (even if it remembers it), and then I'm ok.
But when I'm not in front of my computer, while I haven't push the button "ok", it doesn't connect, even with the wired connection.
That's not very normal in my opinion as there is supposed to have two different and independent connection. No ?

I intent to install an ssh server on my computer but if I cannot access it every time there is a problem that won't be very useful.

Thank you

If you haven't tried it already, give wicd a try. I've found it to be more stable and better at reconnecting than Gnome Network Manager.
