if you are trying to connect using an internet connection using user name and password provided by service provider ,then go in this manner,

>just go to terminal and try to connect using command

continue by simply accepting default settings
provide user name and password where asked

then internet will be connected

test it by using command pppstatus

>if your connection is of DSL go to network manager available in system>preferences>network connections
To setup in this manner and for better information on network connection just refer to official documentation
