Please take a look at the man pages for the commands 'ifconfig' and 'iwconfig' -- you will find quite a bit of information that will help you connect to a wired or wireless network, as well as related commands.

Hi,

'SlackwareŽ Essentials' and 'SlackwareŽ Basics' are two good references.

'Linux Documentation Project' is another good source for reference.

A good admin guide to reference is 'Linux Newbie Admin Guide'.

These links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

Hi,

You did run 'netconfig' as root to configure the device?
If so then please post the output of 'ifconfig -a'.
