I believe your kernel is loading the wrong driver. This has been experienced by others before and you need to run a script (a patch by a fellow linux user) to solve it. I believe the script blacklists the default driver and loads the correct one. You can find the script at https://gist.github.com/2390823. Download, extract and execute the script as root.

It was my mistake that I didn't set IP's required for connections


one of the main reasons for this PCI card not loading is the driver . I just had this issue a few moments ago , and the way i solve it was by installing this driver : https://gist.github.com/ttp/2390823

I also removed the card from PCI slot and put it there again just in case any bad contact was happening .
