    How do you want to go to the internet, i mean by wifi ,ethernet, modem !

    in any case when you boot up to Slax type iwconfig then post the output here to see what slax detects for you .

    Let's assume that your network interfaces are detected , so iwconfig shows

    eth0: ehternet
    eth1: wifi .

    Ethernet connection :

    ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.213 ( to provide an ip address )
    dhclient eth0 (or dhcpcd eth0 ) .

    Wifi Connection :

    iwconfig eth1 essid (your_ssid) mode managed key off (or key HSI8264 ........)
    dhcpcd eth1 (or dhclient eth1).


    Hope this help .

    It can be a unloaded kernel module for your device or it can be a firmware problem , post please the output of lspci to see wish modules requested by your devices .
