I was struggling for a really long time to get my internet working in Slackware 11. It worked only with kernel 126.96.36.199, but i wanted a new and shiny kernel 2.6.xx generation. So i have choose'd to use test26.6 ( or huge26 ) from Slackware CD. In any case, after installation i didn't have internet.
Of course my modules was loaded ( via-rhine ) but no internet.
So if someone has the same problem OUT THERE just do the following and i guarantee that you'll have internet !
So first step: download a new shiny kernel from kernel.org ( i have choosed 2.6.20 ).
2 THIS IS IMPORTANT !!!!

Trust me that post is really great, and even if you are newbie ( like me ) you will manage to compile and install your new kernel, JUST DON'T HURRY things.
Make sure to select you Ethernet wendor, in order to really have internet after all those steps;
Ok when everything is done and you are just about to boot WAIT !!!
IF you are using LILO as boot manager please take a look at /etc/lilo.conf and at top of the file you should see something like
# Normal VGA console
# vga = normal
Now enable vga = normal
Ok now you are really done... reboot.
if you still dont have internet now, just type:
and after you setup your connection settings type:
Now you should have internet
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE !
