2
If the model of card is not defined by the computer, it will be considered as an unidentified device, to have an icon in the form of a question mark of yellow color. Usually it is called Ethernet controller and is in the group of network devices.
3
Right-click the mouse on the icon of the network card. In the context menu click on Properties to bring up a new window with data about the device. It will list the driver information for the device, its manufacturer, used resources, and its physical connection to the computer systems. Here will be listed the model of network card, if the system were able to determine. Otherwise, continue with the following actions.
4
Click the Details tab at the top of the properties window of the device. Click on the drop down list at the top of the window, open it, and select that contains a device instance ID.
