Hello there,

If you can provide your distribution (a better bet would be to put it on the info on the left) then I might be able to help better. In the meantime, if you do find where to put the values,

ip address - can be set dynamically - try dhclient eth0
net mask - almost always will be
default gateway - your router's IP
primary name server - as above (probably)

Hope this helps
