Strange fix for no internet connectivity

I'm only posting this question because I'm a little confused.
I had installed slackware 12 last night, and I was unable to get it online despite all my network configurations being set properly.

Today I decided to try to tackle it a different way, however, my cd-rom drive and usb sticks don't work either.

I've got an EVGA motherboard with dual built-in ethernet controllers, and neither was working yesterday. In my attempt to get my dvd drive working, I undid a "#" in the fstab for the cd-rom and rebooted. All of a sudden, I now have internet.

A) Can anyone tell me why that worked?
B) Can anyone point me in the right direction to get my dvd drive/usb sticks working?

The error I get for the drive/sticks are-

Hi Mavman, Welcome to lq. I'm not sure on the network connection, will need more details of what steps you tried during configuration. The usb devices however, can likely be explained in this thread.
Good luck. ;-)
