Do you ping the host name or the IP Address?
What is the Error Message if you try to ping?

Yes it pings to its own IP. But it dont pings to other computers in the network.
i have checked firewall and selinux, they are all disabled.

I read some of posts...some says it is due to irq mismatcd and they suggests to pass different kernel arguments like pci= noapi, biosirq.... etc. But they seems not to be working in my case. They says it is realtek network card bug and should be fixed if i use 8139too driver instead of 8139c. But i am unable to fix this problem !!!!

You could use modinfo to find out which options you could pass the module
for e.g. modinfo tg3
Code:
parm: tg3_debug:Tigon3 bitmapped debugging message enable value (int)
If you found the correct option you can edit your modprobe.conf with the needed option so that it's applied on boot.

Windows can set these cards so they are (temporarily) unusable by linux.
See this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...roblem-591466/
Especially post #12 by dresb, which has the solution.

Thanks!! This totally solved my problem.
Windows was disabling my n/w card when it shuts down. ?????
.. and we do not need to pass any kind of kernel argument to linux kernel too!!

Thanks
