I'm not sure how to access Network Manager from within Xfce.  Within
GNOME, you can access it via the usual "All Settings" applet.  In Xfce,
at the very least you could fire up a terminal and use "nmcli" or
"nmtui", which should be installed in your system profile by default
when you have the NetworkManager service installed.

Hope that helps - good luck!
