This looks like an ARP message to me, which is what i would expect.

Use a network sniffer like tcpdump to see if the packet is actually
making it onto the network. If there is no packet on the network its
probably an issue with PHY configuration or cabling.

Then check to see if the host your are trying to ping responds with an
ARP reply. If there is no arp reply sent there may be something wrong
with the ARP request, like its been truncated, CRC is wrong etc. 

Then see if they ARP response is being received and then dropped for
some reason.

Basically, keep debugging....
