No wireless internet in openbox


Hello and thanks for any help in advance. I am currently arch linux on my HP Dv7 6135dx. My wireless internet works fine under under cinnamon and Kde but not under openbox. My assumption is that Kde and Cinnamon are auto-starting something that I have to manually start in openbox but that is just a guess. Does anyone have any ideas

network-manager, most probably.
maybe adding
Code:
nm-applet &
to your autostart is enough.
maybe you need to install network-manager first.
