Does network devices have device nodes because i have looked inside /dev directory and have not found any corresponding device node although it's up and running


Not on Linux. Network communication in Linux is socket-based, having a device node would serve no purpose.

Some other Unix flavours may have an entry in /dev for the interface (e.g. I know that SCO Unix did).
