Hello Shailendra28,

As with all problems, the more information you provide, the better we can provide help. So, please run the following commands as root or in combination with sudo when running as your user and post the output between code tags please:
Code:

ifconfig
route

This will give us the basic information needed to start troubleshooting.

Kind regards,

Eric

Are you absolutely positive it is pinging successfully? ifconfig says you don't have an IP address

what was the IP which you were able to ping because in the absence of IP address I don't think you would be able to ping localhost as well

I believe The Ethernet card is inactive so better to make it up

Code:

#ifup eth0
and make sure you provide a valid IP

In Fedora 15+ the network cards are not called eth* anymore, they're p#p# and/or em#. On my Fedora 15 machine it's em0 and em1, on my Fedora 16 machine it's p4p1 and em1.

OP - are you sure you were able to ping? What IP did you ping? Usually when you can ping an IP but don't have access to the internet, it means your DNS is not configured correctly. You still need an IP though, which it doesn't appear you have. Are you using a static IP or DHCP? What are you using to configure your network (NetworkManager or manually?) Do you have two network ports or just the one?
