I've installed Slackware 14 several times. I'm using XFCE for my Desktop. I have tried to set up Networking by using "netconfig" during install, and without "netconfig" during install until after I have added user (larry) and have all my groups (lp, cdrom, floppy, audio, video, plugdev, netdev, scanner) assigned. I don't have any Domain specified in my Router, and Slackware's install and setup in "netconfig" won't let me press ENTER instead of assigning a Domain name. How do I assign
a Domain name of "NONE", or remove it after executing "netconfig"?
I never get any Icon in the Top Right XFCE Panel, and I can't find any installed software (GUI) that will allow me to get my Wifi working.
APPLICATIONS MENU -> SETTINGS -> NETWORK CONNECTIONS doesn't do anything when I Left Click on it. WHY?
I've set ESSID, KEY, and WLAN0 with iwconfig, but the power is at Zero.
I can't ping anything, and I'm still stuck. Network restarts don't help, and neither do reboots.
I've found this site that is supposed to make it easy to enable the Wifi, but so far it hasn't helped me get my Wifi working.
What am I missing/overlooking?
Do I need KwalletManager enabled before the Wifi(Networking) works?
Why don't I have a Network Icon in the Top Right XFCE Panel?
Internet & forum searches haven't helped find what I'm doing incorrectly.
I'm at the point where I need detailed instructions to get the Wifi functional.
Thanks, for any assistance you can offer.
