    Well, they are both detected.
    Where are you running into problems?

    I only installed today myself...

    I installed wicd to manage wired/wireless connections

    Code:
    slackpkg install wicd
    If you haven't already enabled a repository mirror, edit /etc/slackpkg/mirrors and uncomment just one repo (closest to you). Then first do

    Code:
    slackpkg update
    slackpkg install-new
    slackpkg upgrade-all

    Your wired connection should still work, can you plug in an ethernet cable to your router/switch? Wicd is on the DVD, there is a repo which points to it, you can try uncommenting just that one and see if you can install it from there.

    That adds a twist to things...
    But you'll most likely need the b43-firmware to get wireless going.
    This can be installed from SlackBuilds.org: SlackBuilds.org

    If you can download the builds to another computer and move them over, you should be able to get everything going.
