I recently installed Arch Linux and am having issues getting the network manager set up. I am able to
sudo wifi-menu and connect to a router, but these settings are not preserved through a reboot.
What can I do to resolve this?

You aren't setting up NetworkManager;
wifi-menu comes from "netctl" and it doesn't automatically configure its generated netctl profiles to start on boot.
From your question I assume you have NetworkManager installed. To use it,
systemctl start NetworkManager
make it auto-start on boot:
systemctl enable NetworkManager
tell it to connect to a WiFi network:
nmcli dev wifi con "My network"
However, if you actually meant netctl by "the network manager", enable the
systemctl enable netctl-auto@wl…
wl… with the actual interface name that you see in
