I'm not really an expert in this so this may not be of any help to you but the following has always worked for me so far:
1) after you reconfigure your system via netconfig, restart networking via
in order to get IP (if you use DHCP) and have everything set properly
2) although I've never had this problem with any of the previous versions of Slackware I found that in 14.1 I can't have inet1 and networkmanager services running together because if I do I lose my connection immediately.
chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager
did the trick.
