You leave others to guess too many details! How are you connecting to the internet? (Wired ethernet, wifi, 3G/4G mobile broadband?)

Please post the relevant hardware details (even if it means running commands and capturing relevant output, saving to file, and transferring via memory stick to a computer with a working internet connection so that the details can be posted here).

Driver and firmware loaded?
Code:
/sbin/lspci -nnk|grep Network -A3
Code:
dmesg|grep firmware
Which distro are you using? Are you using NetworkManager to connect with or using some other method?

Is your wifi device visible? If not, is it hard blocked/soft blocked? The rfkill utility is needed to help with this...
Code:
/usr/sbin/rfkill list
If that checks out ok, then run to following to determine that a wireless device node exists...
Code:
/usr/sbin/iwconfig
If you are getting as far as being connected to your AP, but no internet connectivity then report back with output from
Code:
ip add
Code:
ip route
Code:
grep "name" /etc/resolv.conf

Any active device node(s) present?
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig
This will show active and inactive
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig -a
We're looking for a wireless network device node eg wlan0

Just in case this reference is useful to you

Sorry, I missed this statement. Examine /var/log/wicd/wicd.log for errors.

You might have to make an effort to locate it then. I don't use wicd or zenwalk.

You might try casting the net wider by posting this issue in zenwalk forums. Not sure what else to suggest here - perhaps try using NetworkManager instead.
