Configuring IP address in slackware in LAN


I am using USB modem which I configured already. Recently, I connected my machine in office LAN. But, I can not able to access internet.

I checked with "route" command, which shows a wrong netmask for the LAN. So, I changed using "netconfig" command and configured ipaddress, netmask and gate way address. But, still "route" is showing, the old values of net mask and gate way only.

I tried with pppoe-setup also. No luck . I am getting, "/usr/sbin/pppoe-start: line 193: 3710 Terminated $CONNECT "$@" > /dev/null 2 > &1 "

What I need to do to work in LAN connection ?
thank you
