By the way, Slackware is an excellent choice to learn more about Linux. I would give a native install a try to see if your hardware is supported.

So what can i do to use my internet conex ( i need my wireless card)
thanx for ur help

If you have set up your VM to use NAT for networking, the VM will use your native connection (in your case your wireless) for networking.

Do you have configured the network during install? If not, simply set it up for DHCP, and it should work. You may want to have a look at this.

I am not sure how VMware handles tha NAT, because I am using Virtualbox for virtualization. But it seems to me that the vmnet1-adapter has a working configuration, because it has a gateway. Try to ping the gateway, also try to ping the IP 8.8.8.8.
After that try to ping a hostname, like google.com, so that we can see if DNS is working.

If you use the Wubi-installation, Ubuntu will use your real hardware. This may lead to a situation where you need a wired connection to install drivers for your wireless adapter.
I rather would recommend to install Slackware into Virtualbox, so that you can see if this is a VMware related problem. I personally would recommend to rather keep Slackware, if you want to learn the in and outs of Linux. OK, but I am biased.
