Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Your wifi adapter is (probably) an intel 3160 rev83, which is supported as of kernel version 3.10
Since Slackware 14 ships with kernel version 3.2.29 you have 2 options:
1) upgrade to Slackware 14.1 (easier option for a newbie)
2) compile and install a newer kernel for Slackware 14
My network adapter is a Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160; I downloaded the iwlwifi-3160-ucode-184.108.40.206 driver. I copied this into the folder with the other drivers. I did make menuconfig to enable the options under
