If you want to use wicd the I would recommend to use the pre-compiled package from /extra.

You can also do this in a terminal:

wget http://ftp.ist.utl.pt/pub/slackware/...7.0-i486-2.txz && installpkg wicd*tkz && wicd-client &

Hum probably there's no driver for your networkcard actually
You need to know exactly what's card it is:

Code:
# lspci -v
And if there's no drivers in use, you must to install it, I have one Atheros and solved installing atl1c driver, in newer kernels it's come together

Cheers

Actually not. The OP does have no network connection on that install, so pulling in a package with wget will not work.

I just went through a networking problem with a laptop running 13.37. Wicd didn't work until I had most everything
else sorted out.
1. As root (su -) run ifconfig -a this may immediately tell you if your wireless card is recognized. Show that result.
2. Also as root, as already recommended, lspci -v will show the name of your card, and may list the appropriate kernel
module at the bottom.
3. Assume your kernel module is ipw2200 (this is mine), lsmod | grep -i ipw2200 will show if your kernel module is loaded.
4. If not, load it with modprobe your_module
5. If it doesn't load, you'll have to find it, probably on the internet.
6. If loaded, show results from ifconfig -a so we know which interface is for wireless. Once this is known, you'll need to
edit /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf. I can help you with this, as can others, if they will.
7. We also need to know what type of encryption your wireless node uses.

How did I solve my problem? I read alien bob's networking guide until it started talking to me in my sleep, and I got it
working.

Good luck!

I'm now 100% sure that you can figure this out on your own.
well,emh,maybe i was just a little...too lazy to do that?
however i think the following may be helpful:
(1)i access internet by campus LAN(eth0) through servers in it,using DHCP.
(2)the local router also serves as a DHCP server,but not the DNS server.
(3)i have no way to vi and add the DNS server to /etc/resolv.conf,saying 'the file's timestamp has been changed' and just left unsaved.

(4)the DNS server is not in a subnet with the local router( but in the same LAN,of course)
(5)i can ping and even telnet the local router(but don't know the passwd,haha).
(6)it seems that the DNS server is reachable with my slackware,but after entering a domainname,firefox says no server found.
(7)at boot time,i notice a message:dhcpcd requires a lease.... 8 seconds time out........(well,well,i can not remember clearly,may be a clue)

that's it, may be useful.
