Setting up wireless network connection on Slackware ARM

Setting up a wireless network connection on Slackware ARM on a Raspberry Pi - http://sarpi.fatdog.eu/index.php?p=wireless-nic

A new project tutorial is available which will show you how to easily configure and setup a wireless USB adapter on a Raspberry Pi 1, 2 or 3 - or using the on-board WNIC on a Raspberry Pi 3. This project would suit users in locations where connecting to the network via an Ethernet cable is inconvenient or simply not an option, or if you just want to connect wirelessly as an alternative.

This project will take you through finding out the make/model/version of a wireless USB adapter if it is unknown, finding out which driver(s) will be required to run a wireless USB adapter, configuring and setting up a wireless USB adapter on a Raspberry Pi 1, 2 or 3 and/or configuring and setting up the on-board wireless network interface card (WNIC) on a Raspberry Pi 3, installing drivers for a wireless USB adapter (if required - because Slackware ARM might already have them), loading the driver modules, downloading and installing the 'wicd' network manager for Linux, and configuring 'wicd' to connect to a wireless network (WLAN).

Hope it's useful. Have fun with it. 8-)
