Why does NetworkManager take so long to connect to the wireless network?

I have a Dell Mini9 that came with Ubuntu 8.10. Out of the box, Wifi configuration was done under System settings -> Network and worked straightforward. Then, after some update patches, NetworkManager was installed to replace this functionality.

"NetworkManager takes ages too connect automatically. I found two commands helpful in this context. To rescan wifi networks on my wlo1 wifi interface:

/usr/sbin/iwlist wlo1 scan

To make a connection:

nmcli c up <network-name>"
