What if the ISP provide network interface to windows only?
Example there is a client app for windows only, you can only get access to internet when you running that client app.

Some wireless ISP will do that things.

Is there a solution to this?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

The client app is almost always a front end for something totally supported in Linux.

If you have a cellular connection, it probably works as a normal PPP dialup connection.
If you have some strange wireless connection, it probably runs PPPoE.

LinuxCoin has everything included to connect to the net. Most companies don't support linux with their pretty little GUI's but never fear we have network manager Cheesy
