yes here is the fix http://docs.slackware.com/slackware:beginners_guide when you installed you should have selected networkmanager here what you want to do.
I use networkmanager.
as root chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager and make the other rc.inet1 non executable chmod 664 /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1

this will let you use the gui
reboot

First off, and before you do or try anything else, can you run this command and post the output:

lspci

It might be better to know which exact Network Card you have, and if it may or may not need external firmware.

If it's a Broadcom card, this thread might help: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ux-4175434970/

not sure how you set up your wifi last time. ?? may be you didn't select networkmanager.

Your welcome you know, I know what causes what to work. But it may be just a simple config on the install was different.
