I would be very thankful if anybody help me regarding this
VMware maintains a list of supported components like network adapters etc. at https://www.vmware.com/go/hcl?deviceCategory=io
Please see if your network adapter is on the list for the ESXi version that you are using, and whether an additional driver is required.
If you are using ESXi version 5.x or 6.x. you may also want to check out the drivers at https://vibsdepot.v-front.de/wiki/index.php/List_of_currently_available_ESXi_packages
