It's not clear from your question exactly how you need to connect to the internet. But since you mentioned modem, you probably need to configure SLAX for a point-to-point connection using KPPP (usually under K > Internet > KPPP).

from the Slax website:
It's also possible to setup a Modem connection, just run kppp in KDE, it will start a wizard. The only one thing you should know is that your modem device is /dev/ttyS0 or /dev/tts/0 (both for COM1), or /dev/ttyS1 or /dev/tts/1 (for COM2), etc.

If you are using ADSL then you could try adsl-setup and adsl-start program. If you are using wireless connection, try iwconfig.
And finally, if you're using a winmodem, you'll need to install drivers for it, here's a sample of what will be involved:
