first check if ur network connection is valid and up..

i suppose, that in windows u will be using the dialer to dial into the connection..
then in that case u will need to create a similar dialer in linux...try the kppp utility..

if however, in windows u just plugin the lan cable and it work, this means ur modem is configured for dhcp..
in that case, type "ifconfig -a" to check if the network device has got a valid address.. if not..
u may try to use dhcpcd "device name" example:
dhcpcd eth0

let me know if this works...
