If I buy IP phone at home, how to connect the phone to my computer. I am the freshman about this. This SIP phone has 1wan and 1lan ports. And do I need to apply SIP service from SIP providers? Or I can use the phone directly once I configure it and connect it to network?

The ip phone system is only for intranet/vpn of your home network.
You need a digital to analog converter for all phone companies that I know of atm, none offer voip through them (would need major standardization).

Look at linux voip servers, some decent guides on getting a modem set up to do your dialing.

You'd need to either set up some sort of IP phone service yourself, like Asterisk, or subscribe to a service. Such services are available from many companies. I'm not sure who the best to use in Turkey would be, but two services I use that are good in Canada and the US are les.net and voip.ms. voip.ms also has gateways in the UK so might be a good choice for Europeans. (VoIP is very sensitive to latency so you want to use as close a provider as is reasonably practicable.)
