look for a slackbuild if you need a driver,but looks like wlan0 is your wifi.
slack local.domain loopback works for me.
ifconfig wlan0 up
start wicd (its on the dvd in extra if you dont have it)
refresh wicd if you get any network connect to it.
scan wpa_gui as wicd tries to connect now you should be able to double click on the network you want and enter your info and connect in wpa_gui.
hope u get ur wifi going!
and look in slackware section on this forum for more tips....
