just installed slackware64-14 and it doesn't detect wireless or ethernet

Hi all. I just installed slackware64-14. I followed the step-by-step instructions and chose the kde user interface. It boots fine, I can log in fine, and I can type startx and the kde desktop comes up. But on the panel I have the red box with the "x" indicating there is no internet connection. I checked to see if the wireless is switched on (hardware-wise) and it is, and I even tried an ethernet cable, but nothing. I have tried netconfig in terminal with both DHCP (just chose host name: hegira and domain name: domain (that is what I saw in some other threads), and I also tried autoconfigure using network manager. Neither are leading me anywhere. Can someone please help?

Sorry about that. I am trying to close it, but it seems I might not have the option.
