USART interrupt ATMega168

I was using USART interrupts to handle data transfer from PC to uC so that I could send that data to another remote PC using nRF24L01. Everything worked just fine with ATMega88, but on one side i had to switch to ATMega168 and then... :( :( :( everything stop working ...
So I tried to debug it... one thing at the time...

USART communication is working when I send some data from PC to uC and back... But when i try to do that using USART interrupt problem occurs... When I enter any character from terminal it goes crazy .... starts printing some symbols and blinking dash goes left to right all the time (pretty fast)... I go back again to ATMega88 and everything works...

Usart init and 2 functions that i used for communication ....

void usart_init(void)
        unsigned int USART_BAUDRATE = 9600;		
	unsigned int ubrr = (((F_CPU / (USART_BAUDRATE * 16UL))) - 1);	

	UBRR0H = (unsigned char)(ubrr>>8);
	UBRR0L = (unsigned char)ubrr;

	UCSR0B = (1<<RXEN0)|(1<<TXEN0);

	UCSR0C = (1<<USBS0)|(3<<UCSZ00);

void usart_transmit(uint8_t data)
	while ( !( UCSR0A & (1<<UDRE0)) );
	UDR0 = data;

uint8_t usart_receive( void )
	return UDR0; 

Enable usart interrupt

UCSR0B |= (1<<RXCIE0);


	uint8_t W_buffer[8];

	int i;
	for (i=0;i<8;i++)


I tried printing something at the beginning of the ISR to see if it goes inside but that never happens.
Anyone have a idea what could be the issue here ? I feel i just go round and round in circles.... :(
