It's "ifconfig" and not "ipconfig".

Insert this in your /etc/network/interfaces after the above lines
I am assuming eth0 is your gateway interface (means all the data passes
through this device).  

iface dsl-provider inet ppp
provider dsl-provider

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address (if it's a 192.x.x.x replace it appropriately)
netmask (similar)
broadcast (similar here)
gateway (your 192.x.x.x gateway here)

Save file, exit.

$ sudo touch /etc/resolv.conf; then enter your ISP Namserver (Primary
and Secondary DNS) addresses.

mine's -
$ more /etc/resolv.conf 
nameserver 203.x.x.1
nameserver 203.x.x.2

Then finally,

$ sudo invoke-rc.d networking restart

Post back.
