I know this sounds basic but is you firewall running sometimes Linux firewalls work too good.

Try using the command "netconfig" as root -- that's the Slackware network setup tool.

Can you ping LQ.org? Try the following commands and see what the response is:
$ ping linuxquestions.org
$ ping 64.179.4.149

If you get a response for the second and not the first, it's a DNS problem (search the Slackwae forum for how to set that up). Else, there's ... something else wrong

how do i activate network connection..

1. Check your routing status type '%route -n' at the command line
2. Of ok then type '%/sbin/service network start/restart or stop
3. Then try to ping someone.

There are some excellent books out there on this.
