I have not used slax since the days when it was slackware based, so I do not know what tool it is using to configure the network connections. What tool are you using to configure the network connections and are you receiving any error messages when you attempt to connect to your wireless network?

Is the wireless source in visible mode ?Did you check the security settings in the wireless source?
If it is your home wireless source, try to connect to it using wire-connection.
