neworking problem

Ok I am a complete noob in linux and I have a problem. I installed slackware 11, ALSA and nVidia drivers and everything is working fine, exept the network. I heve an unnamed wireles router, but the PC I have slack on is wired ( the router has 4 sockets for wireing). Everything works fine on windows is working fine so I guess it's not the router. I chose DHCP on the netconfig and it detected tulip lan card which module has been loaded, but when I write ifconfig there is no eth0. If I write the IP ( the adress which windows used to give me) manualy in inet1.conf, it shows eth0 with the ip but I still can't connect to the router or i-net. Can you tell me where am I mistaken
P.S. Sorry for my English

If eth0 doesn't show up in the ifconfig list it means (hopefully) simply that the interface isn't just configured. There's a tool in Slackware for doing that; I thought it would be just netconfig but if you've run it, then there's something odd with it. As I don't remember what dhcp client Slackware tends to use by default, try running either of these commands:
dhcpcd eth0
dhclient eth0
and see if that does anything..
