the command you are looking for is /sbin/ifconfig
the file in debian that configures all networking devices is /etc/network/interfaces
in this file you will also find example configuration sections for example devices. for additional info please reffere to the man pages,
man ifconfig
man interfaces
if you have a look at the LQ wiki pages, some people have already put a howto togeather on the entire subject 'networking'
