Ethernet cards are Rs.220/- upwards;

USB ports are integrated into the m/board (if your b/board does not have them, recommend changing the same if you *do* need USB ports;

No ISP in the world provides them (it is a part of your hardware)

actually you can buy USB ports for old hardware which plugs in your PCI slots.
