Sagar, I think you have us confused here! :)

You plug your computer to the internet using a normal LAN cable, right?
If so, there must be an IP address, DNS Server, and Gateway given by your
ISP. If not, then ask for it. They will either give you these, or tell you to
use DHCP (in which case, you just need to use DHCP. No setting of IP
parameters is needed. DHCP takes care of it, and you get IP address etc,

Now, coming to the problem with dial-up connections. People normally use a
program called wvdial. If you have an ISP which gives you dial-up, you
probably need to google with the name of the ISP and the type of modem (for
example, I googled with something like "wvdial Tata Indicom Huawei Linux" for
my connection) to find out how to connect. (wvdial is the program I told you
about, on the phone when you called me, by the way)

Hope that helps.
