Here's what you can try to fix your problem...
Be 100% sure that you have successfully installed Windows 2003 without getting any error message during setup.And you didnt ignore any warning message during setup. Ensure that said hardware is in the Hardware Compatibitility List (HCL) declared by Microsoft. As you have done a fresh installation of the Server 2003 I would suggest you to see the status of the device driver in the Device Manager. See that appropriate drivers are installed. Also check if there is any update to those drivers. Get it from the vendor & apply it. After drivers are properly installed you self ping the NIC by using
Its a local NIC's address. If you get reply to this ping request you have correctly installed your Network Card.
Then the next step would be to check the IP address for the NIC using which your NIC will communicate with other nodes in the network. See if its assigned automaticaly by DHCP in your environment. Or you have to configure it manually. If so properly configure IP , subnet mask & gateway if required.
Now check the connectivity to the network.
If you have already done these checks what I would suggest you to check IRQ of your NIC for any conflits.
As you are might be aware of the Windows Firewall introduced by Windows Server 2003, which is capable of blocking ICMP requests.i.e. Request for ping commands. Try disabling it. Or check with your network Administrator for the port you have connected your Server machine on. Check it with a different pc that it works properly.
If it still frustrates you try another NIC on your motherboard.
These are few things you could check for on your computer.
Reply me if it works for you or any other solution the fixed the issue.
